The meeting started with a minute's silence to pay respects to Jessie Fish, who sadly died last month. Jessie was a well-respected member of the Henfield community, and dedicated many years of faithful service to St Peter's Church, and the Parish Council. 

Cllr Malcolm Eastwood was then elected as Chairman of Council, and Elaine Goodyear as Vice Chairman. Our photograph shows them both getting down to work.

Out-going chairman Ray Osgood was deservedly thanked and praised for his 6 years of tireless and skilled leadership in the chair, and for his work on the Henfield Neighborhood Plan. 

Cllr Osgood then briefed Council on a meeting that he had recently attended with local MP Nick Herbert.
