posted 22 Sept 2020, 07:50 by Robert Cowley   [ updated 19 Oct 2020, 06:01 ]

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that there are currently THREE vacancies in the Office of Councillor for South Cerney Parish Council.

The Parish Council is able to fill the vacancies by co-option, rather than a formal election process.

If you are interested in serving as a Parish Councillor, you will need to submit an expression of interest by the extended deadline of 5.00 p.m. on Friday 6th November 2020.  Supporting statements are encouraged, on no more than one side of A4, detailing why you would be interested in becoming a Parish Councillor. 

Expressions of interest should be submitted to Robert Cowley, the Clerk of the Parish Council, at 3 Broadway Lane, South Cerney, Cirencester, GL7 5UH, or by email to clerk@southcerney.org.uk.

Candidates are reminded that, to be eligible for co-option on to the Parish Council, they must satisfy the standard election qualification criteria.  Please contact Cotswold District Council’s Elections Team if you need any guidance on this aspect (telephone 01285 623000 or e-mail elections@cotswold.gov.uk).

It is hoped that the co-option will be dealt with at the Parish Council meeting to be held online via Zoom at 7.30pm on Wednesday 11th November 2020 (meeting details to be published on www.southcerney.org.uk).

Playground re-open at Upper Up, Robert Franklin Way and Cerney Wick

posted 17 Jul 2020, 02:15 by Robert Cowley

Please read before using the Play Equipment

Users of play equipment are reminded that:

You must Stay Alert; to stop the spread of coronavirus you must still follow government guidelines, including social distancing.

·   Do not enter a park if you have any symptoms – fever, coughs, shortness of breath or are self-isolating

·   Always keep at safe distance from anyone outside your household:

o Use all areas of the park (that are open) and spread out

o If the park is crowded, do not enter if you cannot stay at a safe distance from others

o Be kind to each other and respect the wishes and boundaries of others

·   Be aware that park benches are not sanitised

·   Food and drink may not be consumed in the playground area

·   Make sure you dispose of litter in bins provided or take it home with you

·   Follow hygiene advice when you are outside, avoid touching surfaces (such as benches) and wash your hands as soon as you are back home or use hand sanitiser.

Although we have taken every care to ensure that the equipment is regularly checked, it is not cleaned, and you are advised to bring your own hand sanitiser and wipes.

Anyone using the Play equipment is reminded that they do so at their own risk and the Parish Council accepts no liability.
