About Us

Village Vision logoVillage Vision is all about villagers having their say about the way they want to live, so your input is vital. A committee has been formed to coordinate the production of the plan on your behalf, and they'll be seeking your input throughout the process; they are:

  • Philip Gadd, Chair
  • Jenny Boutle, liaising with Parish Council to administer the group's finances when needed
  • Jean Gadd, Secretary
Village Vision imageSupporting them will be:
  • Carole Ruse, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council
  • Dennis Barber
  • Dorothy Collard
  • Elena Perez-Minana
  • Kay Pratchett
  • John Pratchett
To achieve its aims, the committee will be:
  • Gathering the views and opinions of as many groups and organisations in the community as possible
  • Taking responsibility for the analysis of the information gathered
  • Identifying priorities and timescale for local projects
  • Identifying potential sources of funding for local projects
  • Throughout the process, liaising with relevant organisations to ensure that any project is realistic and achievable
  • Throughout the process, reporting back to the parish council on expenditure, progress and issues arising during the course of producing the Action Plan
  • Producing and distributing a final report, including the results of information gathering, prioritising of issues, action agreed and formation of working groups.
