Suffolk Village of the Year 2023

Community Council News, October 2017

Cockfield Community Council News

Its November and that means that our Annual General Meeting is upon us. This year the meeting will take place on Friday 1st December in the Village Hall, starting at 7.30 pm. It is an important event for the Community Council as this is the meeting where we receive reports of our achievements through the year from our retiring Officers and we elect our 16 Trustees to serve for the coming year. From amongst the Trustees we elect our Honorary Officers – Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. This year three of our Trustees, among them our current Treasurer, have indicated that, having moved away from the village, they will be standing down, so we need new faces to replace them. The meeting is open to all residents of the village and anyone who wishes to be nominated as a Trustee should make him or herself known to our Secretary, Janne Cutting-Keyton, at least one week prior to the meeting.

The Community Council is an important part of our village life so please come along to the AGM and show your support and, if you feel you can contribute, stand as a Trustee

But, before that we have three events in November…….
