Webmaster needed for Bar Hill website
I will be relinquishing this task when the current hosting package finishes at the end of February. If you are able to take on this task for the residents association I will be happy to assist in the hand over. You will need some IT skills. I can be contacted for more information either by using the link at the bottom of this page or by clicking here

There is a group on facebook where up to the minute traffic data is posted. It is called Bar Hill Drivers.

A happy new year to you all
Website traffic in 2017 was 8256 visits which compares with 5556 visits in 2016. This is an average of 29 visits per day. The stats can be viewed by clicking on the counter at the bottom of this page.
I am expecting changes in 2018 as the hosting package comes up for renewal on the 27th February and, as the Parish Council will be producing it's own website www.barhillpc.org.uk and I don't see the need for a small village like Bar Hill having two websites, I have disabled the auto-renew so unless anything changes this site will cease to be available at the end of February. No firm decisions have been made yet and I will give plenty of warning of any changes.

New Play Park Now Officially Open
This facility is aimed at the young people of Bar Hill i.e. the 11 to 15 year olds. It seems to popular and has been in use whenever I pass by.
The Parish council had a well attended meeting (30+ young people) to identify their needs and it does look like this was a success.
There are a couple of things still to complete. The tarmac area in front of the goal unit is still to be laid and we need to get some rubbish bins located nearby. It would be also be good to get Wi-Fi to the hangout unit and probably not too expensive.
