The Chairman's Annual Report for 2019-20 has been published. 

"At this time of the year the Chairman’s report is normally prepared for the Annual Parish Meeting. This is the meeting where the residents can ask the council questions out of the normal council meeting setting and the Chairman presents a report on what the council has done over the last year. However these are not normal times but I felt it was necessary to still do a report and present it by what means we are able even though the meeting is not likely to take place this year."

The Parish Council has noted that the level of usage of the dog bags from the dispensers on Chapel Lane and Badsworth Way is excessive, and contrary to the original purpose of the dispensers which was to provide emergency bags only. It has agreed, therefore, that it will not supply any more bags for the foreseeable future in order to encourage dog owners to provide their own bags when clearing up after their animals.

 

The Parish Council will continue to monitor dog fouling in the village to see if this decision has any detrimental impact."

The Parish Council meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 7.30pm at The Lawson Hut.  Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings and can informally meet and greet councillors from 7.00 – 7.30pm as well as participating through the Open Forum near the start of meetings.
