RESIDENTS in Bassingbourn are being invited to share their visions for the village's future.
Bassingbourn Parish Council is looking at various ways to update its parish plan, and has set up a steering group to co-ordinate opinion on how the village should be developed in the future.
Group chairman Dr Laurence Robinson said: "Our first task is to try to communicate with villagers and local employers to see exactly what they would like to happen in the village over the next few years.
"We also want to see what aspect of the village or village life people want to preserve."
To generate such interest and opinion, two meetings have been arranged with an invitation that extends to the whole community.
Both meetings will be held at the Limes Community Rooms in Bassingbourn High Street, where the group will make a series of presentations.

- The meetings will take place next Tuesday, at 4pm and 8pm.
