Kevin Piper has resigned as Parish Councillor due to business commitments. Although there are procedures to follow, hopefully by the time you read this, the Parish Council will have its full complement again.
Grass cutting continues to be monitored. The Councillors are
keeping an eye on the service and following up concerns.
Consideration is being given to using private contractors for land
owned by the Parish Council but currently cut by the County Council.
As previously mentioned, repairs have been carried out in front of
the shop and this has been much appreciated. However, there are
still concerns about parking on double yellow lines and/or the
pavement and the Civilian Traffic Enforcement Officers have been
asked to visit.
Essential repairs are being carried out to some play equipment on
the Playing Fields
You may have noticed some of our Councillors out and about
recently. They are surveying the village for potholes, weeds, signs
etc. and have each been given their own “patch” to monitor. They
plan to do this twice a year although any problems in the interim can
and will be reported.
Cllr Richardson is to be our representative on a working Transport
Group which includes other local Parish and Town Councils.
