VOLUNTEERS needed: The Hatch Warren Community Association is always in need of local volunteers to help man the various community events it runs during the year. Help is needed at two upcoming events – the spring craft fair and the traditional pub night. If you can offer a hand at either or both of these, please contact the community office on 01256 811262.

HATCH Warren WI: The ladies of the WI will be at the community centre next Thursday, March 6, for their monthly meeting. The speaker for the evening will be talking on the subject of the Empress Eugenie. New members and visitors are always welcome, 8pm start.

SITE selection for Local Plan: Next Tuesday evening, the planning and infrastructure committee of the borough council will meet to discuss sites to be included in the Local Plan for new housing.

A number of sites local to Hatch Warren and Beggarwood are likely to form a part of the local plan.

The meeting is open to members of the public.
