Dear Sustainable Hayfield Member/Supporter
PARISH COUNCIL ELECTIONS - WHY NOT TRY YOUR HAND?
Have you ever thought of contributing your
skills and passion to being a Parish Councillor? And changing the way we can
support our community by advancing practical ideas to make it a more
sustainable, greener and valued place?
You'll know that elections are coming up soon, including for Hayfield Parish Council. Currently, there's several vacancies on the Parish Council and it would be good to have a 'slate' of candidates from whom to choose. As the lowest tier of public democracy, party politics has little role to play in Parish Councils, but ideas are always welcome!
The Parish Council meets monthly, and is serviced by a Clerk. Parish Councils are a good way in which to propose, and get adopted, policies and initiatives you feel strongly about..Andy Barker, our Parish Clerk, can give you a run down on what's involved in being a Parish Councillor. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
If you are interested, details about the nomination process are on the High Peak Council website. It looks complicated, but is pretty straightforward. The thing some people find confusing is getting details of the two sponsors you need (their polling district and voter number), but Andy can help with that, since he's got the information you'll need.
Why not give it a go? Existing Parish Councillors probably felt as you do, if you've never done anything like this before, but they've managed it successfully. There's no reason why you shouldn't!. Nominations need to be in by 4.00p.m. Tuesday, 4th April.
And, if you decide to try your hand, good luck!

FINAL CALL HOME ENERGY MOT!!
requested a visit, we’ll get in contact and make arrangements. This is a unique, free
scheme, just for the parish, so don’t miss out!
Welcome to your winter 2023 Sustainable Hayfield newsletter, packed full of material, and with a focus on positive experiences and actions. Click here to see it.As you read, we'd ask you to do three things, if you'll be so kind:
Why not #ShowTheLove for our planet this February / Valentines Day? People across the UK will be painting, drawing, stitching, printing or otherwise designing green hearts for window displays to demonstrate their public commitment to work for a greener, cleaner, safer world, which values biodiversity, fairness and sustainability. Might you join them? And, if you wish, why not write a letter to our MP, enclosing a grreen heart and ask him to do what he can to promote government actions which help secure that reality and make more progress on the huge tasks facing us to achieve net zero within a decent period. He couln't help but notice a cluster of green hearts arriving in his mailbox/bag.! Details of the wider campaign are at https://www.theclimatecoalition.org/show-the-love
