Platinum Jubilee Celebrations in Nayland 

A big thank you to everyone involved in the Street Party on 5th June 2022 celebrating 70 years of the Queen’s reign.

It was a wonderful event with a fabulous atmosphere and reflected the spirit of the Community Council in true Nayland with Wissington style.  Whether you moved your car from the High Street (unnecessarily as it turned out), put up the bunting, rung the Church bells, sung in the choir, entered the fancy-dress parade, joined in with the community singing, were a member of the set up/clear up committee or just attended the event you were part of a day to remember.  The praise for the event has been coming in from far and wide and I can honestly say it would not have happened without everyone’s cooperation and support.

Thank you so much to Wendy Sparrow and her team of helpers for a wonderful 1950s exhibition which evoked so many wonderful childhood memories for so many people.

Thank you all for your Platinum Jubilee mug orders and a big thank you to the Parish Council and Community Council for jointly funding the mugs that were ordered for all under 16`s who live in the parish.

River Watch 

As featured in the August 2022 issue of  the Community Times, the following correspondence was sent to the Environment Agency expressing concerns over the management of the section of the River Stour that runs through Nayland,  They were asked to respond for circulation in the Community Times. These documents can be found below:

The Save Caley Green Campaign

As featured in the Community Times, the Parish Council are proposing to put vegetation around the bay to prevent erosion.  This will impair the open view and reduce access to the water’s edge.  A considerable number of residents are against this proposal and would like an alternative solution using revetment without vegetation. 
The results of the 'public engagement' carried out by the Parish Council in late August revailed that of those residents who submitted responses: 
AGAINST PLANTING - 29% 
WANTING ALTERNATIVE TO PLANTING - 65% 
IN FAVOUR OF PC PROPOSALS - 7%

You can learn more on the background of this in the following documents: 
‘A Much Loved Village Amenity’: reaction, options, why it matters and more can be viewed here.
