At the Parish Annual General Meeting held on 14 May, several issues were discussed. These and other items of interest are detailed below:

The meeting was attended by DDC Councillor Jo Gilford and County Councillor Robin Brown. The latter indicated that faster broadband is on its way and should be available throughout the county by 2017 and for some parts by 2014.
Topics discussed included the state of the roads, which it is hoped will be addressed in the coming year. Parish Enhancement Gangs are scheduled to deal with potholes, blocked drains and gulleys and signposts. No date has been fixed yet for this work. I will endeavour to inform you when it is to start, if I have advanced notification.
The hour long meeting included a summary of village events both past and future. The Litter Pick, in which many residents participated, was successfully accomplished in approximately an hour, those who took part were thanked for their help. The Jubilee Celebrations, last year resulted in a profit from sales of 2013 calendars of £124, which has now been donated towards the Millennium Spinney for the purchase of bulbs. The forthcoming fête and dog show on 22 June, was mentioned, with the advice to contact Debs Hirst or Tony Fell for further details, or offers of help.
Finally, a village website is scheduled for the future. Residents will be notified of progress in due course.
