Now that the upgrade is complete we have a village hall to be proud of. Our late chairman, Peter Raisbeck, worked tirelessly to complete this improvements. His dedication during the final months of his life was unbelievable. Thanks also to David Harrison whose contribution was immense. We have received many compliments from users from outside the village. The hall is well used for functions and meetings, but new members on the management committee are urgently required.
There has not been much activity from Harrogate and the developers this month. We expect this is the quiet before the storm and is likely due to Harrogate planners continuing to breakdown our well researched and valid objections with counter arguments; and the developers working on their planning applications. Oakgate have booked the Green Hammerton Village Hall for two consultations events to show case their Cattal (Maltkiln) proposals on Tuesday 8th May and Tuesday 12th June.
The campaign team have not been sat idle either. Behind the scenes the team are working on preparations for fund raising events, which we will announce in due course. The group also continues to build on our evidence and objections by further research and investigation in preparation for the EIP.
There is certainly plenty to do and because each stage becomes more technical we will also need to seek further professional advice and guidance where appropriate. To do this we will need to raise further funds and we hope that you will continue to support our events and hopefully have a bit of fun at the same time. Please look out for the advertisements and help our community to continue the fight against the new settlement.
Thank you for your support
