Please note the Council's Contractors, Manor Farm Estates, will be undertaking spraying and fertilising of the football pitches in preparation for the 2017/18 football season on either 5 or 6 July 2017.
The Parish Council has a small grants fund, and at this year's Annual Parish Meeting, we enjoyed hearing from the wide range of local organisations we have supported, including the Fete - an inspiring reminder of the community spirit in Hazlemere and the reason why I am honoured to have been re-elected as Chairman of the Parish Council for the year ahead.
This is the new bus shelter in Rose Avenue - provided recently for local residents by Hazlemere Parish Council. The Rose Avenue shelter was requested by residents of Nickson Court and will be of great benefit to them and all others waiting for buses heading towards High Wycombe. Due to the width of the pavement and the need not to transgress onto private land, this was a difficult matter to plan and negotiate and thanks are due to Cllr John Hagan who took much of this on board, working as always with the Parish Clerk. The Parish Council hopes the shelter will be well used, appreciated and respected by all.
There is a casual vacancy for the above Ward caused by the resignation of Councillor K Tucker; the relevant vacancy notice formal notification is attached.
This is the new bus shelter in Holmer Green Road. This one was requested by local residents traveling away from High Wycombe. Due to the proximity of the mains services in this area this was a difficult matter to plan and negotiate and thanks are due to Cllr John Hagan who took much of this on board, working as always with the Parish Clerk.. We hope it will be well used, appreciated and respected by all.

This year, your Parish Council has taken the difficult decision to increase the precept – the amount of Council tax that goes to pay for Parish services. This means that the precept for a Band D household will increase by £6.22 a year or 52p a month, to £68.48 a year.
The Hazlemere Memorial Hall Charitable Incorporated Organisation is looking to appoint three community trustees to join the Board of Trustees, for a period of four years.
