Message from SOS: If you have not done so already, please can you write to the Planning Inspectorate to reaffirm your objections to this speculative development. If you Objected to this development earlier in the year, you do not need to write your objection in full again.  Your original objection letter (that you wrote to the WODC)  will have been sent already to the Inspectorate. However it is vitally important that you do write in again to say that you stand by your original objection and that you now support WODC, The Standlake Parish Council and SOS in fighting this appeal case.

 Standlake Village Hall - Urgent Request for volunteers

 The Village Hall committee has lost it’s treasurer after many years service. At the recent AGM there was not a single volunteer to join the committee and without support (not necessarily for the post of treasurer) it is difficult to see how this can continue indefinitely. PLEASE help and contact the chair - Barry Barber - at barryannejosh@mypostoffice.co.uk
