I am very disappointed and saddened to let you all know that the Upper Rissington Parish Council Chairman Marc Buffery has resigned from the Parish Council.
Firstly, as a person that takes great interest in our village, I am really disappointed to relay this information. Marc has been instrumental in moving URPC forward in leaps and bounds in the last few months, unfortunately it would appear that the old guard has meant his position has became untenable. I really hope Cllr’s Hanks and Laird don’t undo any of the good work he has done, including the planned play park improvements. I was hoping that the council was moving forward in a cohesive manner, how wrong I was.
I have not angled any criticsm at URPC for a long time as I had hoped and believed progress was being made, how wrong I was.
Furthermore, I hope that Cllr Mark Mackenzie-Charrington takes responsibility and asks why Marc has resigned at the next council meeting.
PS: Looks like the shenanigans are happening again, maybe instrumental in the delay of the next council meeting. I only hope that URPC has the strength to get through this resignation.
