Bardsey Parish Walks

These take place in order to explore the boundaries of our Parish and ensure that the footpaths are well used.

The first Parish Walk on the east side of the Village will begin at 2pm on Saturday 9th July 2022.

The second Parish Walk on the west side of the Village will begin at 2pm on Saturday 16th July 2022.

Do come along and join us and meet some of your Parish Councillors and make new friends on a pleasant walk, which should take approximately 2 hours.

Boots or strong shoes are recommended and dogs are welcome.

Please meet at the bottom of Mill Lane at 2pm for both walks which will be led by Cllr Linda Flockton.

Annual Parish Meeting 7:30pm Wednesday 20th April 2022 Bardsey Village Hall

For the first time since 2019 Bardsey Parish Council is delighted this year to be able to hold a normal Annual Parish Meeting at the Village Hall, which may be freely attended by all residents of the Parish.

We are keen to welcome as many of you as possible to the meeting, so that we can bring you up to date with events and current priorities, but more importantly we can listen to your views, concerns and aspirations for our village in future. Not to mention share the customary glass of wine of course – not something which a virtual meeting can really offer!

For a copy of the calling notice please click on the following link : https://bardseyvillage.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/APM-Calling-Notice-2022.pdf

The agenda will be posted on the village notice boards, and also here on the web site. Return to the home page and click on the ‘Council Proceedings’ heading in the green menu at top left of the screen.

We look forward to seeing you.

Village Survey

Bardsey Parish Council urgently needs your guidance to help us deliver for our community.

That’s why we are launching a new survey to establish how we can better communicate and better serve our residents. It is open to all residents of the parish, and we need every response we can muster.

Please note that responses must be received by 31st May 2022 to be included, after which results of anonymised analysis will be shared on this web site.

We would ask as many residents as possible to complete the survey online. This is more environmentally friendly and helps us a lot when it comes to analysing the results.

To complete the survey online, please use the direct link below to access the questionnaire on your PC.

If you do prefer to reply in hard copy this is also possible. Information and a questionnaire will be included as an insert in the forthcoming issue of Village News. You can also print further copies from the information link below. Please post completed questionnaires through the letter box at Callister Hall.

Please note that in all cases replies are needed to questions 1 and 2 to validate your response, since only current residents of Bardsey-cum-Rigton are eligible to participate. This information will only be used for this purpose, and will be treated in strictest confidence.

Please do let us have your views!
