Congratulations to Chris Pentney of Guessburn who has won the hamper after being drawn at random from all the residents who had either returned their surveys or completed it online by 23 December. 

Chris said, "I was surprised and delighted to receive the hamper and have been enjoying the contents very much over the festival period with my family. I have to say I wasn’t really thinking about the hamper when I filled in my survey - I was probably putting off an admin task, but I really enjoyed the chance to be able to think about what extra amenities our village might benefit from, and what we already value here in Stocksfield."

Remember that you have until 3 January 2019 to return the completed paper survey or to complete the survey online at All your views are important so please take this opportunity to influence the future. Thank you to veryone who has already done so.
