Thank you to all who visited the Ickford Neighbourhood Plan display at the Church Fete

Vision for Ickford Neighbourhood Development PlanOver 80 people stopped by, we had some excellent interest and feedback, and were able to fill some of the gaps in our information gathering.

A copy of the full presentation is now  available on this site Ickford Vision Presentation, and there are some fascinating statistics and views of the village therein. For example, from the questionnaire returns we have on average 2.9 cars per household against a national average of 1.2; we have on average 2.5 residents per property, but 3.4 bedrooms (against a national average of 2.3 and 2.9 respectively); and on average residents have lived in the village for 16.5 years – the longest living resident in the village we have found, has lived here for 79 years!

Questionnaires – over 70% of households have now returned the questionnaires, so the participation is excellent. If you still have not returned yours, please do so by dropping it into Jan Jones at 1 Church Road. If you have lost yours and need another copy, please email info@visionforickford.co.uk.

Wildlife survey – As part of the Neighbourhood Plan we will be undertaking a survey of the wildlife in the village – reptiles and amphibians, butterflies and moths, bats, mammals, native and migrant birds, and your help is need to record sightings. Chris Sandham is heading up this initiative and would love to hear from you if you can help. I am assured no experience is necessary, just a keen eye and some enthusiasm! If you or any member of your family would like to help, then please contact Chris on sandhamchris@icloud.com. Download the WILDLIFE FORM here.

Harry Butler and the Photographic Club are all helping us with photos of the village and surrounds, but we are also trying to get hold of any historic photos, pictures or prints of the village and past residents. Do you have any? If so, may we scan them? Please email on info@visionforickford.co.uk
