Prickwillow Village Newsletter

March 2023


At the recent AGM, the Chair, Dan Littler stood down. The current Secretary volunteered to take on the role; however, there were insufficient members present to vote and no-one came forward to take on the Secretary’s role that would become vacant.

The Village Council are therefore appealing for any resident who would like to be Secretary to either contact Chantal Epp at or come along to the next Council meeting on March 13 at 8.00pm.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to take on the role of Chair, Chantal has said that she would continue as Secretary.

No experience necessary. Please contact Chantal for further information.

From May 2023, voters across England will need to show photo ID to vote in person in a polling station, following new requirements introduced by the Elections Act.

If you do not have any of the acceptable forms of photographic ID, which includes a passport or driving licence, you will be able to apply online, by post or in person, for a Voter Authority Certificate (VAC) that will allow you to vote in the polling station.

Go to for a full list of accepted ID and details of how to obtain a VAC if required.

Requirements to show photographic ID in the polling station will apply in the following elections:
