History Group News
These last few months have been particularly busy for the Chapmanslade History Group, which until very recently has been led by Joyce Jefferson. As many will know, Joyce and Phil have moved to Tetbury to be nearer family.
Following the very successful launch of their book, ‘A History of Chapmanslade’, the group are embarking on new projects.
‘Chapmanslade Chaps’ is an informal ‘go-to’ group for getting things done in and around the village. If you are interested in joining, or have suggestions for what the Chaps can do, please contact Nigel Brown at email@example.com.
Bee Friendly Chapmanslade

Join the village Chicken Chasers for an informal stroll through the countryside on the footpaths and bridleways around the village.

Everyone is welcome including well behaved dogs, kids and youngsters, and visitors to the village. The route may be a bit hilly so there may be a little effort involved.

Chapmanslade Parish Plan Adopted
Following community consultation meetings the Parish Plan has formally been adopted by the Parish Council.
Nigel Brown, Steering Group chair, says “The Parish Council and the community are determined not to let the Parish Plan sit on a shelf somewhere. It is a living document which has already resulted in many initiatives. Now we need more folks to get involved.”
