Welcome to the Up Hatherley Parish Website
Community Resilience Grant Scheme
Up Hatherley Parish Council recently met “virtually” with Cheltenham Borough Council CBC) to review how we can play a part in shielding vulnerable citizens, protecting our community and supporting businesses during (and after) the Coronavirus pandemic.
One of our concerns has been food poverty, because there has been a downturn in donations to foodbanks and an increasing number of households are finding themselves in food poverty. At our May meeting, we agreed a £1000 donation to the Mayor’s fund for foodbanks, so as to support a number of foodbanks operating in our locality.
Both UHPC and CBC also recognise the fact that community and volunteer groups have an important role to play at all times, but particularly during this national emergency. CBC (with help from Gloucestershire County Council) have established a Community Resilience Fund and have recently increased the fund from £80,000 to £100,000.
If you are involved in a Community or Volunteer group and have concerns about how your viability has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, then more information can be found by following this link:

Our website has been a success in terms of the numbers accessing it and the variety of information contained within it, and we will work to keep this happening. This site is important for bodies like Up Hatherley Parish Council to reach as many people as possible so that everyone understands what their precept (the amount you pay your Parish Council through your Council Tax bill) goes towards.
We are also slowly building up our online presence through the use of Twitter @UpHatherleyPC, so you can always reach us there as well. When we put up big updates we will announce these via Twitter but you can still sign up to updates via email through the links on the right hand side of this page.
If you have any queries or suggestions please contact John Furley via email@example.com or the Parish Clerk via firstname.lastname@example.org
