Parish Council minutes are signed by the Chairman and are kept indefinitely as they record the decisions made by the Parish Council on all matters. They are deposited and held at County Archives in Chichester, which is part of West Sussex County Council.
County Archives have recently informed us that the Parish Council minutes from 1981 to part-way through 1995 are missing, which means for whatever reason, they were not deposited.
The Parish Council is now trying to establish if these minutes still exist.
If anyone can provide any ‘clues’ as to where they might be, or who was involved with the Parish Council during those years either as the Parish Clerk or as a Parish Councillor, it would be much appreciated if you would contact the Parish Clerk either on 07342 166 188 or by email on email@example.com
Also, if anyone has any copies or draft copies of any of the minutes during this time period, even if unsigned by the Chairman, these would also be gratefully received, and can be copied and returned to you.
Clerk to Easebourne Parish Council
