Chairman’s Report, Feb’14

Parish Council Meeting – 6th February 2014

We would like to assure residents that the Parish Council is doing all it can to resolve the flooding problems on the roundabout. However, we are in the hands of Norfolk County Council highways department, who keep telling us the problem is soon to be resolved. If residents have an issue with the flooding, please call NCC highways department.

The Swaffham bus service is up for review in April. Residents are invited to the Parish Council meeting on March 6th to express their views on the continuation of this fortnightly service.

The new allotment site was discussed and a post and wire fence running adjacent to Pig Stye Lane was agreed upon. Next to the fence, a hawthorn hedge will be planted. Please remember, if you have applied for an allotment, the lucky candidates will be drawn out of a hat at the March 6th meeting. You are welcome to attend if you wish to.

The Community Speedwatch Scheme should be up and running soon. Checks have been carried out on volunteers, and the police will be doing suitable site checks very soon.
An application for financial assistance was received from Mundford Playgroup. This was discussed at length, and after due consideration, a one-off payment of £660 was agreed upon.

The meeting closed at 9.37pm.
