Parish News - February 2016

Since the last magazine, Lesley Holden has tendered her resignation and co-option is currently underway. She has been a valuable member of the Parish Council and her contributions will be missed.
As a result of the damage caused by the floods, £1000 has been given to the Scout Group. Their recent meeting held in church (as the Old School House had once again been flooded) produced a huge turnout and many offers to help. Fundraising is well under way and I am sure the funds will be raised.
A supply of gel bags has been purchased by the Parish Council and these are available to residents at a reduced price. These bags can be used as an alternative to sand bags and could help to keep flood water at bay. For more information, please contact Councillors Chalmers, Gray or Jordon.
A fence has been installed at the playing field – extending the existing fence to cover a gap in the hedge.

The next meetings will be on Thursday 18th February 2016 followed by 17th March 2016.
Margaret Davenport
Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council
