The Annual General Meeting is coming up soon, and we would welcome some new members on the Steering Committee.  We currently have a Chair (Simon Bennett), Secretary (Geoff Whittle), Treasurer (Matt Stevenson) and three other members (Ruth Cheney, Dennis Foxon and Sylvia Reid).  Richard Ward has recently stood down, having been involved since the meeting back in January 2015 – three years ago – that formed a working group to investigate setting up a Neighbourhood Forum.  Thank you to Richard for his involvement, particularly for his help with legal and constitutional matters.

We would like to see more of the membership getting involved, so would welcome people who are willing to spend some time helping the Forum to achieve its aim of creating a Neighbourhood Plan for Knighton.  Steering Group Meetings are monthly in an evening for about two hours.  Between meetings, members of the Steering Group may be involved in talking to other organisations, working groups, dealing with the planning consultant who has been helping us, and organising our activities.  We would particularly welcome someone who is able to spend some time on publicity: email and print newsletters, posters for meetings, and our website, Facebook and Twitter.

If you want to find out more, email us at and one of the existing Steering Group members will get in touch.
