The Town Council meet this Wednesday 19th September at 7pm, in the Westwoods Centre. We have invited Highways Officers along to talk to us about their proposal for reopening the Old A40, potential repairs and costings. If the plans go ahead the Parish will be asked to contribute financially and so we encourage residents to come and hear the plans. Please find a copy of the agenda below.
On the first Saturday in August a stroll round Northleach revealed a wonderful array of floral delights many of which sadly were not entered into the Town Council’s competition. Despite recent weather conditions conspiring against the creation of floriferous masterpieces the residents of Northleach excelled themselves and gave us a delightful morning. Inevitably with a competition there have to be winners and the task was difficult but in the end the overall winner had to be the vibrant and exuberant display created by
Mr. and Mrs Clifford in Crail View
and the runner up was
Mrs C. Cooper of Ward Road
and both won vouchers from the garden centre in Moreton in Marsh. Congratulations to both these competitors. Anyone taking a wander through the Town would be well advised to keep an eye open for the glorious hydrangea in Mill End, the charming display outside Dover House and the excellent barrels outside the Cotswold Hall. A big thank you to everyone who has put in so much effort to create lovely displays for all to enjoy despite all the adversities that the weather has thrown at us over the last weeks. Lastly our thanks go to David Fox who, with his daughter Georgia, kindly devoted his Saturday morning to judging our offerings.
Northleach with Eastington Town Council is sponsoring a flower competition. Any floral display outside the house or shop can be entered (hanging baskets, window boxes, barrels, planters but nothing artificial). The closing date for entries is 28 July.
Judging will take place on 4th August and the winners’ names will be announced in September.
The competition is open to anyone of any age living or working in the parish of Northleach with Eastington, both residents and businesses. The floral display(s) entered must be located in the parish.
To enter, download and complete the entry form with your name, address where the flowers will be displayed, and contact information. There will be printed competition entry forms available in the Chemist, Fruit Cakes, Black Cat Cafe, the church and the Westwoods Centre, which you can complete and return by hand, if preferred.
Personal data provided will be used for the sole purpose of organising the Town Flowers event. Information will be held until the competition has ended and then destroyed. The Town Council will only use the information you provide to contact you about the event, communicate with participants and to announce the winners.

The Annual Town Meeting takes place on Wednesday 23rd May at 7pm. This is the meeting postponed from April and is traditionally a round-up of last year’s work and community news. Everyone is welcome. Please join us from 6:30pm for refreshments and to meet councillors and staff.
As two of our councillors are stepping down in May, this would be a good opportunity for anyone interested in becoming a councillor to hear about what we do and what we achieved last year.
The Annual Town Meeting will be followed by our Annual Meeting of the Town Council (agenda out next week), which is the “business” meeting of the Council where a new Chair and Vice Chair are voted in and the committees agreed. Residents are welcome to stay for both.
