Dennis to Retire from Parish Council
Dennis Barnard, our very own 'Mr Chapmanslade' is to retire from the Parish Council after 42 years service to the community.
"It's an outstanding achievement" says Phil Jefferson, "Dennis has played a huge part in the village over so many years."
Phil, Chair of the Parish Council, will himself be stepping down after 8 years. In reply, Dennis says that Phil has been the best chairman the Parish Council has ever had - even better than himself.
