Nearly ten years ago, there was a plan mooted for the establishment of a 'Cripps Centre' at the Village Centre. (See attached pdf)
It didn't happen, but it illustrates how having a plan can help enable all sorts of 'good things' to happen, and 'bad things' not to happen!
For instance, if you read the plan, you'll see that it was clearly understood, even then, that the Post Office would probably close unless it was incorporated differently, and into something bigger. In the end, there was no plan, and the Post Office did close.
Having a plan for the future is not just about change, it is also about how to help retain the things we love about our village.
So, let us think... What do we like now, and what would we like, and how might they fit together?
