Devolution consultation

All residents are to elect the proposed new Mayor for the region – as per all the papers issued this week.
But the Secretary of State needs to know that such a “Mayor position” is desired by the residents – hence the Devolution Questionnaire.
Attached is a copy of the On-line Questionnaire and a copy of the shortened version to suit those residents who wish to send a completed Questionnaire by post.

Post Office Update

A message from our chairman, George Riley:

We have some very good news. The Post Office is to stay open!  Recently Rachel and Steve from the George and Dragon decided they wanted to give up the Post Office so they could concentrate more on running the pub. So the PO was to close on August 19th. A lot of residents were very concerned about losing such an important facility and asked the Parish Council to help. We found a local man who is really enthusiastic about taking over the shop and with the assistance of Paula, who I’m sure you know, running the PO , John Tomlinson will be taking over the managers role at the end of August.
So this is where all of you Batheaston residents come in. In order to keep this facility we must use it. Our elderly residents rely heavily on the PO and local businesses too. So we wish John and Paula every success in their venture together and with our cooperation I’m am sure it will be a success. If there is anything you feel the shop should stock please see John , he is open to ideas.
