Kennett Village News Page
Text of the children's view of anti social behavior in Kennett in response to the initiative being taken up by the villagers to deal with issues in the village. I think it states that case of the young people of the village very well and should make us all aware that it is so easy to brand all the young in the village as causing unsocial behavior. I do think we need to be very sure who is responsible for any occurrence of anti-social behavior and to where possible to initially identify the culprit(s). I would initially suggest to talk to the parents of those involved to make them aware and for them to take the necessary action. If the situation does not improve then further action involving the local police will need to be contemplated.
This letter also identified a further need for activities to be provided in the village so that "hanging around" is not the only option we can provide. We have already heard your views on what needs to be provided to help the youngsters and perhaps now we can all join together in trying to make the requirements a reality. - Webmaster
The letter is as follows:-

We have been made aware of a problem with dog fouling especially around the entrance to Kennett County Primary School and the school end of Church Lane. Could we ask all dog owners who use that area to walk their dogs to be especially vigilant and tidy up and dispose of anything left behind by their animals.
Please be a responsible owner
The Village Plan has now been printed, published and distributed to all the villagers in Kennett
The questionnaire analysis has been returned from Warwick networks and the village committee are currently analysing the findings and putting together a draft village plan for discussion. The information and comments provided by you the community have proved to be extremely valuable in identifying, certainly the issues, that you feel need to be addressed in the village. Once again a very special thank you to all of you.
Prize draw took place at the Kennett Parish Council Meeting on the 10th December 2007 the luck winner of £100 was Mrs Grace Piletto of Kennett Cottages, Kennett. The cheque will be presented to her by Mrs Josephine Swanson who was the volunteer who distributed and collected questionnaires in that area. Well done to you both.
The returned questionnaires have now been submitted to Warwick University for analysis and a detailed report. This will then enable the village plan committee to start to put together the village plan.
The completed Village Plan questionnaires are being collected by volunteers and so far we have received 60% of them back. If you still have a questionnaire and wish to return it could you either post it headed "Kennett Village Plan" to 10e Dane Hill Road, Kennett, Nr Newmarket, Suffolk, CB8 7QX or deliver it to that address. The cut off date for receiving completed questionnaires is the 30th November 2007.
