Leaders meet Eyam residents to hear their views
Residents in Eyam are being invited to meet with leaders from the Peak District National Park Authority to talk about issues in their village.
Narendra Bajaria, chair of the authority, and chief executive Jim Dixon will visit Eyam on Monday (2 February) in the latest of a series of visits to get the views of residents in local communities across the national park.
The event is a chance for Narendra and Jim to meet with residents, business owners and parish councillors to discuss any issues that affect village life.
They will also discuss the work of the Peak District National Park Authority in the area to find out what is working well and areas where improvements could be made.
Members of the public can meet the leaders between 5pm and 6pm on Monday (2 February) at the Mechanics’ Institute in Church Street, Eyam.
During the visit the authority’s chair and chief executive will also talk to pupils, parents and governors at Eyam Primary School.
They will then meet Jo Killingley and PC Anthony Boswell to talk about a successful youth project they run in the village and Lynn Jackson, who runs a luncheon club.
Members of Eyam Village Society and the Sports Association will also hold discussions with Narendra and Jim during the afternoon.
Other community visits planned for the future will be at:
- Bakewell on Monday 9 March 2009 and
- Waterhouses and Calton on Tuesday 7 April 2009.
