A message from the HVA Chairman
I have been delighted by the compliments and thanks paid to the HVA for the recent Fireworks display and our Remembrance Service. Huge thanks to Rob Law and Adrian Stratta respectively for organising the events.
Rob has now decided to pass the baton on to a new organiser, or organisers so if you want the event to continue in the village please give some serious thought to taking over the mantle. Rob will mentor you every step of the way but if no one comes forward then we will have seen the last village display. PLEASE, would someone in the village volunteer to take this on?
Ask not what the village can do for you, ask what you can do for your village.
Please contact me at Chairman@holybourne.com if interested.
About the H V A
The Holybourne Village Association (HVA) was established in 1974 to fulfil the role of a Parish Council, and represent the views of the village in areas such as planning or matters of public interest, as well as organising social events and raising money for local charities or projects.
The HVA is an official ‘consultee’ in the planning processes of the District and County Councils, and regularly responds to planning applications that could affect the whole village. Members have often been part of long-term Local Government planning committees.
The HVA also works with many other village organisations such as the Church PCC, the Women’s Institute and the Village Hall committee.
Although all the committee members are volunteers, we take our role seriously as a seemly small ‘parish pump’, issues do matter to people in a close community like Holybourne. Any Holybourne resident is automatically a member of the HVA and free to attend the monthly meetings at the Village Hall (second Tuesday in every month, at 8pm). Any resident can stand for election to the committee, which takes place in October at the Annual General Meeting. Voting is by those residents attending the meeting.
We are always looking for new committee members and the amount of time you need to commit is entirely up to you, so come and get involved!
