  • Great to see we make an election for one of the following and not URPC!

  • There are three people who have put their names forward for the two vacant positions on the Parish Council.

  • Shame that there wasn’t more volunteers that desired the post of Upper Rissington Councillor. Although hardly surprising.

    Good luck to all the candidates.

  • Do we know what the candidates want to do within the community if they are elected?

  • Good question Jerry, but its not what they want to do its more about what can they achieve?

  • Marc Buffery – election statement.

    In the absence of any indication to the contrary I am posting my candidate’s statement for the Parish Council Election on the 19th October. Voting will take place at the Village Hall.

    This is your Community, Your Parish Council and Your Vote, please use it.

    I have been a resident of Upper Rissington since 1994, prior to this I lived, since birth, in Stow on the Wold. I was a Parish Councillor in Stow for nine years and at one time stood for District Councillor there. I was a founding member of the Upper Rissington Community Committee and the subsequent Upper Rissington Parish Council for 2 years.

    A great deal has been promised by the developers but sadly very little has materialised, particularly relating to the younger members of our community, provision for the disabled and replacement of lost employment opportunities. I will make strenuous efforts to;
    Ensure that all the promises made by the developers are fulfilled and as soon as possible, not at some vague date in the future.
    Ensure that all residents of Upper Rissington have a voice, through the Parish Council, to the District Council, County Council and our elusive MP as to how the Upper Rissington Community develops.

    Ensure that all residents feel involved in planning our future and that the needs of the majority are recognised and acted upon by the Parish Council.

    Ensure that the Parish Council is open and transparent in all its dealings at all times and that there are no more meetings behind closed doors.

  • Bob Hazard – election statement.

    Hi my name is Bob Hazard and I am a candidate in the upcoming Parish Council Election. I have lived on the Old Camp for the past 4 years and love living here and being part of a great community.

    From the few Parish Council Meetings I have attended and the recent meeting with the Developers and Cotswold District Council, it is clearly evident that there is a lot of anger and frustration felt by a large majority of our community.

    If I was elected I would work to ensure that :-
    1) The Parish Council and it’s Councillors would work in an open manner and serve the whole of the community.
    2) The Parish Council work closely with the Upper Rissington Social Committee /Village Hall Trust, so that the Village Hall realises its full potential.
    3) Ensure that both Bovis and Linden fulfil their obligations in relation to their promises in the 2013 Open Spaces and Amenities Document.
    4) Lobby the sitting Member of Parliament for our constituency on the issue of the singular choice of Gas supply we have on the Old Camp.

    I am not politically motivated, I just want to make Upper Rissington a great place to live in, and serve the people of this great community.

  • Shame we can’t get have all three of these candidates on the council. No one from Victory Fields applied then?

  • Karen – I agree. They have spent the time to write a good election statement and I believe any one of them will make a vast improvement and fix the rotten core.

  • Result day today….. 🙂

  • I’m told, the results of the Parish Council election are as follows:

    Marc Buffery 187
    Matt Barley 144
    Bob Hazard 137
