Eye Neighbourhood Plan Summer Survey 2024

Eye Neighbourhood Plan Working Group is asking all residents to complete the summer survey which is now live. While the group can make it’s own decisions, legally neighbourhood plans have to be led by the parish council.

Joss Edge, Chair of the Neighbourhood Plan working group said: “The Neighbourhood Plan is quite possibly one of the most important documents developed for the village in recent years.

“The survey is an important part of the process in the development of the plan and it’s important that we hear from all residents what you think is good, or bad, about living in Eye or Eye Green so we can understand what you care about and your aspirations for the parish. The group has put lots of work into creating this survey so please spend a few moments to complete it.

“All responses will be used solely for preparing this Neighbourhood Plan. The survey is anonymous and no-one will be identifiable in any published results.”

You can fill out the survey online or below. Printed copies of the survey can be found in the Leeds Hall or Manor Farm Community Centre.

You can read more about the neighbourhood plan on the website.

Memories of Eye Café and Lantern Making workshop

Peterborough Presents is running a Memories of Eye Café and Lantern Making workshop at the Leeds Hall in the village on the Saturday 20 July from 11am – 3pm.

Entry is free so bring along any photos, scrapbooks or other memories about the village. Peterborough Presents are looking for your stories about Eye. Enjoy an exhibition by Andrew Mortlock, the London Brick archivist and ask him any questions about the brickworks. Alternatively, make a lantern while you talk to the wonderful team from the parade, Light Whale International. All ages welcome.

Peterborough Presents works with communities and artists to create art that is fun, diverse, and most importantly, relevant to local residents.

What to expect

The Memories of Eye Cafe will feature images from the village’s history on tables and in a small exhibition. And please bring along any photos, archives or objects about the recent history of Eye that you would like to share. Andrew Mortlock, the London Brick Company Archivist will have a display about Northam brickworks that were in Eye and can answer any questions about brick making. Volunteers and staff from Peterborough Presents are hoping to chat to people and collect their memories. All memories, photos and archives shared will feed into the lantern parade and a heritage trail that will be sited in the village in November.

At the same time, Light Whale International will lead lantern making workshops. Anyone can participate and you don’t need to bring anything. You can make a lantern that you can bring to the parade and it’s the first workshop of the year for everyone to take part in.

There will be free tea, coffee and biscuits from 11am- 3pm. You can also go along if you just want to meet others for a chat, just drop in.

Parking is extremely limited so we encourage everyone to walk.
