16.181    Declarations of interest: No declarations of interest were declared.

16.182    Purchase of Materials for the Painting of Cemetery Railings: After a discussion, during which it was noted that Community Payback is still to advise quantity of  materials required, the members RESOLVED the following:

Following the opening of an account with Caxtons, a pre authorised budget of up to £300 (excl. VAT) is to be available for materials, bearing in mind that a grant may be available retrospectively.

The first Community Payback team is scheduled to visit the village on 14th October 2016 and SH advised that he would meet and greet on behalf of the parish council. Members will meet and greet when available on future visits

16.183    Repairs to Gateposts and Fencing in Halls Field: Further to the meeting on 6th September 2016, the tenant had advised that he would continue to ensure that the field is stock proof but that he would not contribute to additional fencing. It was also noted that the fencing needs attention by Halls House and the Clerk is to write to the estate manager at Stonewater when repairs are being undertaken to advise of cost. After a discussion, the members RESOLVED the following:

In view of the Village Hall being an asset to the community, the members have agreed to forego a contribution from the tenant and all repairs to gateposts and fencing are to be undertaken as per quote from M B Whitlock dated 05/09/2016.


The Chairman closed the meeting at 8.04pm.
