The proposal that the Parish Council give an additional one-off donation of 5000 next year towards the repairs of the Village Hall Roof will be discussed at the Parish Council meeting this Wednesday. In order to do this, the Council would need to increase the Council Tax by approximately 18 for Band A houses, 21 for Band B, 24 for Band C, 28 for Band D, 34 for Band E, 40 for Band F, 46 for Band G and 55 for Band H, for one year only.
 
The Parish Council would like to hear your views on this suggestion. Please write to news@birlingham.org with your comments. All representations will be passed on to the Council anonymously.
