Over 100 villagers attended this years Commemoration on Sunday 1th November. Wreaths were laid at the Memorial on the Village Green by the Community Council, relatives of those commemorated who fell in World War 2, as well as local village organisations. The service which commenced at the War Memorial was conducted by Rev. Alan Kettle and this was followed by the service in the church. On conclusion, tea and coffee was served. The Church Bell was tolled 100 times to mark the Centenary of Armistice Day.
The Vale of Glamorgan, Electoral Registration Team needs your help. They are currently conducting the Annual Canvass 2018. They are duty bound by law to write to all properties in the Vale of Glamorgan asking for basic information on the residents of each household over the age of 16 in order to update the Electoral Register before the publication on December 1st. The Council have already sent the first pink Household Enquiry Forms out in July and at the point of the deadline for this letter on August 17th 75% of the Vale of Glamorgan residents had responded to their forms. This is brilliant, however there is still more work to do and the Council would love to be able to exceed last year’s overall figure which was 88.4%.
The Council have written out again to all non-responders with a reminder letter. The deadline date for a response to this is September 20th. After this date they will have no alternative but to send out house to house canvass teams to knock doors in order to complete the forms. Ultimately there would be a cost saving to the Vale of Glamorgan Council if they can reduce the amount of properties they have to visit as well as a saving on the amount of letters we would have to reprint.
So, if you have not as yet completed your Household Eform you can do quickly and easily via www.registersecurely.com/VoG and entering the 2 security codes.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
