Notice is hereby given that a casual vacancy has occurred among the members of Great Addington Parish Council. If a poll has not been requested in writing by ten electors prior to Wednesday 11th November 2015, the Council may fill the vacancy by co-option.

Please note that prospective candidates will be required to complete and sign a co-option check list to ensure eligibility.
Cllr Nick Palmer (Chairman) will lay a wreath on the war memorial tablet outside All Saints Church to commemorate Remembrance Day on Sunday 8th November 2015. Details about the men whose names are listed on the war memorial tablet (such as their ages when they died, where and when they served and if they are buried at home or overseas) were researched by Kevin Binley (Chairman of the Council from 2009 to 2014) a few years ago. Inclusion of these details is now an important part of the Remembrance Sunday ceremony to pay a fitting tribute to the men from Great Addington who died for their country and to lay a wreath in their honour.
