RESOLVED That the Minutes of the Annual Parish Meeting held on 27 April 2021 be approved as a true record.
- CHAIR’S REPORT
The Parish Council are having face to face meetings and have been kept abreast of changes to government guidelines by the Clerk. I would like to thank Mary, our Clerk on behalf of the Parish Council for ensuring the meetings are Covid secure with all the necessary precautions in place for the councillors and members of the public.
We have throughout the year tried to engage with the public and have been proactive in promoting our grant scheme to support local groups. However, only a few have progressed their request for support. This could be because they have not fully planned out their projects or they have sourced funding from elsewhere. We will continue to promote our grant scheme as we feel this is an important role for the Parish Council.
Larger projects within the Parish have also been discussed, but have not moved onto the next stage for the Parish Council to formally commit to them. The Parish Council are open to projects to support as we no longer have a financial commitment for the up keep on The Link.
Unfortunately our attempts to fill the vacancies within the Parish Council have been unsuccessful. The Parish Council have discussed this in depth and would pursue virtual meetings if this option became available, to see if this would help with filling the vacancies.
As it stands the Parish Council is at risk of folding if we cannot recruit to the Parish Council and I would like to thank you all for your commit and hard work throughout the year.
