The Mayor's New Year Message

"I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas break with their family, friends and loved ones. As we get back to our normal routines, it is time to turn our attention to the year ahead and think about and plan for the future, both as individuals and as a Town Council. We have a great community here in Hunstanton and I hope that each and every one of you looks to the future with a positive determination to make this year, 2020, the best yet.

Hunstanton Town Council has spent 2019 busily working away for the benefit of the local community and its residents, and 2020 will be no different. We strive to serve as volunteer Council members and value all the feedback, comments and ideas you give us.

HTC declared a climate emergency in 2019 and has since implemented several new policies to address climate change and single-use plastic pollution. As a council we have a commitment to the environment and our policies need to reflect this.

Our Community Engagement Panel work closely alongside the Clerk to promote Hunstanton Town Council and work close with the community of the town. In 2020 Councillor appointments will be available to book for anyone that has a matter they would like to discuss, for further information please contact the clerk on 01485 532402.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind people about the Hunstanton Community Award's, of which I will be delighted to present the awards this year at our Annual Town Meeting on 17th April in the Town Hall commencing 6 pm.

The award is to celebrate those people working tirelessly amongst us, in recognition of outstanding service to the people of Hunstanton, or perhaps a person who has committed a single act of bravery, heroism or selflessness in the past twelve months. Do you know of anyone who fits the bill?

Please come forward with nominations by writing to the Town Clerk, Hunstanton Town Council, Town Hall, The Green, Hunstanton PE36 6BQ or by email to clerk@hunstantontowncouncil.gov.uk The deadline for nominations is Friday 28th February.

I would also like to say a big thank you to all the KLWNBC Officers and staff who work tirelessly in Hunstanton to maintain the town facilities and gardens. Without their input and assistance with the Festival of Christmas Day 1st December 2019 the day could not have gone ahead so smoothly. I look forward to HTC & BCKLWN working together with the Seafront Regeneration programme and to ensure the public are kept up to date with all plans as they materialise.

In closing, I would like you, the residents of Hunstanton, to know that my fellow town councillors and our dedicated staff are here for you, and if they have any issues about the town you should get in touch with us. While we cannot promise to be able to solve every problem, we will always endeavor to do our very best to achieve some sort of positive outcome.

I'm looking forward to the remaining few months in my current term of office as Town Mayor, feel honored to serve and represent the people of Hunstanton and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very healthy and prosperous 2020.
