Parish Council Report July/August
A Parish Council meeting is anticipated in September all assuming the Government have relaxed the number of people meeting of 6 at any one time.
Work on the two bus shelters has been completed and they should now be waterproof. The gates at the cemetery from the car park have rotted in parts and become a bit of a hazard for users, so new gates have been ordered from Andrew French Fencing at cost of £595 plus VAT for supply and installation.
Crossroads Care, near the doctors, appealed for any local residents who may be receiving Government Food parcels which they do not need. They have a number of Young Carer families they support who are struggling with affording their increased shopping bills and they have started distributing food parcels to them from donated supplies. The Parish Council has donated £100 to Crossroads Care for distribution which they hope will go some way to helping their young carer families.
Due to changes in legislation the present Parish Council website does not meet The Public Sector Bodies (Website & Applications) Accessibility Regulations and those of GDPR. In late August the present website will close. A new website is being built, and will be supported and maintained by Netwise UK to ensure it complies with legislation. Hopefully, this will be up and running before August. The cost is £499 plus £250 for I year’s support & maintenance to June 2021.
The Parish Council thanks everyone for their patience during this difficult time and looks forward to getting back to some normality in September. In the meantime, If you have queries please contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01622 817068
Take care and enjoy your Summer.
