With the new Histon & Impington Parish Council coming into existence on April 1st we’re about to have the last ever meeting of Impingon Parish Council.
Even though there is work to do with the change-over its still “business as usual” – and the first meeting of the new Council will be on April 2nd.
Its not only the end of an era for the Council – the first meeting happened on 2nd January 1895 – but also a break with the Council’s first bankers. OK – the bank is now Lloyds, but the magnificent Victorian building in the centre of Cambridge was home to the Councils first bankers, Fosters.
The new Council will, until the elections on May 3rd, be made up of all the Councillors who currently sit on Histon & Impington Parish Councils. The first item on the agenda for the 2nd will be the election of a Chairman, and that item will itself be Chaired by District Councillor Mike Mason, who has represented residents as a Councillor, both Parish and District, since the 1970s.
