Vacancy for Parish Councillor – October 2020

Published 27 October 2020

When a vacancy comes up on the Parish Council, it can be filled either with a by-election or by the existing members of the Council co-opting a new member.

As the cost of a by-election has to be borne by the Council tax payers of the village, the new member is most often co-opted to save this expense. However, if ten or more electors request an election, one will be held. Such requests must reach the Electoral Officer at East Staffordshire Borough Council before 19th November 2020.

Anyone interested in the vacancy can contact the Parish Clerk for further details and/or to register their interest. (Email parish.council@abbotsbromley.com)

A formal notice can be viewed: Notice of Vacancy – October 2020.

Neighbour of the Year Award 2020 Now Open

Published 25 September 2020

Nominate a neighbour that goes above and beyond for your community for the Neighbour of the Year Award 2020 run by Co-op Insurance and Neighbourhood Watch

For the third year running, we’re excited to launch the nationwide search in partnership with our friends at Co-op Insurance to find and celebrate some of the UK’s best neighbours.

Our members have told us that to be a great neighbour people share some clear qualities: a willingness to look out for others; being sociable and friendly; offering practical help; and being kind, caring and respectful.

In addition to our Neighbour of the Year Award, this year we have a brand-new category, Co-op’s Young Neighbour of the Year. This award will celebrate someone aged 18-24 who has gone above and beyond to help enhance their community and has brought people, young and old, together.

If you’ve got someone who ticks all these boxes and more in either category, tell us all about them and how they go above and beyond.

Click here to be taken to our nomination form, where you can share your stories of great neighbourly activities and acts of kindness.

The deadline to nominate is 27th October.

2020 Horn Dance Cancelled

Published 12 August 2020

Horn Dancers by Butter CrossThe annual Abbots Bromley Horn Dance was due to take place on Monday 7th September 2020.

However this year the Horn Dancers have taken the difficult decision to cancel the event due to the challenges in ensuring the safety of both participants and onlookers due to Covid-19.

It is hoped that the Horn Dance can return in 2021. Usually this annual event attracts visitors from around the world to view this spectacular and unusual display.

Accounts for the year ended 31st March 2020

Published 1 August 2020

Exercise of Public Rights – 2020

Abbots Bromley web pages updated – July 2020

Published 27 July 2020

Regular visitors to these pages may notice that some changes were made over the weekend of 25/26th July 2020. These revisions were the culmination of several months of planning and preparation and intended to:

  • Refresh the appearance of the web pages
  • Make navigation around the pages easier
  • Tidy up out-of-date and obsolete content
  • Remove advertising
  • Update the underlying technology that delivers the web pages
  • Improve support for mobile devices
  • Improve accessibility

In particular it was this last item of improving accessibility that provided the impetus to make the changes at this time so that the Parish Council pages could be brought into line with the requirements of the “Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018”.

We are aware that some of the content relating to clubs and businesses may still be out-of-date and your feedback in helping to keep these entries accurate would be invaluable. Please send any suggested changes to the Parish Clerk.
