On the 11th April the Parish council presented Robin Leggate with a commemorative glass to thank him for 10 years as Chair of the Parish Council.
A successful annual parish meeting was held in Darsham on Tuesday 16 May. It was well-attended by the community who enjoyed finding out about the wide variety of voluntary organisations from around the village, as well as a glass of wine and canapés very kindly provided by Chris at Budgens, The Fox Inn, and a number of villagers.
Jasmine Backhouse, former vice-chair of Darsham Parish Council gave a report in which she thanked the outgoing chairman, Robin Leggate, for his ten years of exemplary service to the village and also to former parish councillor Keith Rolfe for his pivotal role in the delivery of Darsham's new village hall in spite of many hurdles. Jasmine congratulated Paul Ashton who kindly attended the meeting following his successful election as District Councillor. She went on to welcome Christine Redgrave as the newest councillor following an uncontested election in early May, which has left one vacant councillor position to be filled by way of co-option. Anyone who meets the criteria to be a councillor is warmly invited to draft a statement of interest which they can submit by e-mail to the parish council's clerk, Marie Backhouse, at email@example.com.
