THERE is a vacancy at Down Ampney Parish Council (PC), writes Melanie Fouracre.

The PC is sorry to announce that Cllr Karen Dangerfield has tendered her resignation and will be leaving the council in the New Year.

Karen was responsible for footpaths and was the PC’s representative on the village hall committee.

Her clear thinking and her ability to get things done will be missed.

If you are interested in taking part in village affairs and believe that you can fulfil this role, please contact the clerk, Gail Dillon on or the chairman, Ray Jenkins on
