COLDEN Common’s Annual Parish Assembly will give villagers the chance to raise issues with their parish councillors.

The open forum will be held on Wednesday (May 28) in the Community Centre from 7.30pm and will start with a presentation to Roger Atkinson on his retirement as parish councillor.

Any members of a community group who wish to talk about forthcoming activities and project can register for a five minute slot by contacting the parish clerk, Debbie Harding, by calling 07775 627131 or by email

The Parish Council will also present their plans to buy a defibrillator for the village.
