Village Plan gets a leader

The Chairman of The Knowle Society, Peter Ewin, announced today that Andrew Marston (pictured) will take the lead in developing a possible Village Plan for Knowle. The Society recently sought a volunteer from within the community to lead this important development and is pleased to receive this offer from someone so well qualified to get the ball rolling.

I am delighted to be able to inform members and others that Andrew Marston, our secretary and member of the planning committee, has volunteered to progress matters as leader on the projected Village Plan. That means that for the time being he will liaise with the Council and assess what exactly the Plan should cover. I must emphasise that the Plan when and if completed will ‘belong’ to the village although Knowle Society seems the appropriate organisation to start the ball rolling.

Andrew will need help from as many other well qualified and enthusiastic people as possible and volunteers from members and non-members of the Society are urgently requested to come forward. Andrew has said that should somebody else come forward with the drive and knowledge to ‘lead the team’ he would in principle be happy to hand over to that person but will continue for as long as needed. I think we should all be grateful to Andrew in volunteering for this essential task.
