GIANT HOGWEED - Information for public and landowners
4th July 2019

 

We are getting lots of reports of Giant Hogweed (GH) in the area. GH is a non-native, invasive plant which can grow very large and look very spectacular. But contact with the sap (from any part of the plant) desensitises skin to ultra-violet light, which results in severe burns and an increased sensitivity to sunlight which can persist for a number of years. GH is most commonly found along river banks, where it can spread quickly, producing thousands of seeds each year.

Parish Council - ANNUAL MEETING
20th May 2019

 

The next Parish Council Meeting will be on Monday 20th May 2019 at Robertsbridge Hall at 7:30pm. Press and public are welcome to attend.

 

The first part of the Meeting will be the Annual Meeting, the first after the Elections on 2nd May, and will include election of a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Committees and Representatives (lasting approximately 30 minutes?). The outgoing Chairman Nick Greenfield will preside for the first item, to elect a new Chairman, after which he will step down and the new Chairman will take over (Nick did not re-stand for election, so his membership ends when the new Chairman is elected).

 

The six new Members of the Council will also be selecting up to three more Members to join the Council, to bring the number up to the full nine.

 

After the Annual Meeting, up to 15 minutes will be allowed for public comments and questions, before the start of normal business.

 

You can see the notice for the meeting here. The agenda for the meeting will be available on the council meetings page 3 days before the meeting.
