Last update 30 July
The Time has come
A Neighbourhood Plan is to be drawn up which will determine how Guilden Sutton will be developed in the future.
It will allow the residents of the village to influence where and how much building will take place, what it will look like and what environmental conditions it should meet. It will also define preferences for amenities, businesses and the immediate countryside.
This a serious undertaking lasting around 2 years. A group of 9 local people (which will include three parish councillors) will be set up to produce this essential document.
We need volunteers to become involved NOW!
There is a realistic possibility of building a NEW church hall in the next 12 months. The church urgently needs to clarify their requirements and wishes to liaise with the congregation, hall users and the wider village community to do this.
St John's is consulting as widely as possible on what may be required. The consultation document with some background information may be downloaded here.

Interesting opportunities at Trafford Mill
The mill was being used as a base by the UK wide 'The Conservation Volunteers' organisation up until May; however, the base has now moved to Liverpool, with most of the tools the volunteers were using going there also.As a result, we're seeking to find alternative equipment and additional volunteer help.
