A FORUM set up to promote the interests of Doxey residents is on its last legs due to dwindling numbers.
Chairman of Doxey Parish Council David Adams said it was “not looking good” for the continuation of Doxey Community Association (DCA) after a recent meeting saw just six people attend.
“If it’s terminal it’s terminal, there’s nothing we can do about it,” he said.
Councillor Neil Thomas said: “This is their second attempt to keep it together and it hasn’t worked.”
The parish council agreed it would need to take responsibility for producing the neighbourhood plan - for which the DCA had done a lot of preliminary work - if the forum ceased to operate.
Councillor Adams said the council would need someone else to take on the community newsletter the DCA had published as well.
Clerk of the council, Viv Evans suggested asking volunteers from St Thomas and St Andrews church to take on the newsletter.
She said in previous years the council had approved a grant of £120 to the church to buy a Christmas tree, but this year the church had asked for £550 due to additional expense they had incurred when they were forced to fell a silver birch that had become a health and safety risk.
“Could we ask the church to take on the newsletter if we approve their grant perhaps?” said Mrs Evans.
Councillor Neil Thomas said the church had indicated they would be interested in helping produce a newsletter.
