Declarations of Interest


Public Forum

Mr Edwards addressed the Council and reminded them that it was he who had produced the map of the Village for the notice board recently damaged by the storm. Mr Edwards complained A) that the Council had not asked him as the originator of the map to replace the map and B) that there was no record in the minutes of the fact that Councillor Martin was preparing a new map. In addition to the complaints of A) and B) Mr Edwards considered that these complaints indicated that the Council was not interested in the public. The Council accepted the accuracy of Mr Edwards comments A) and B) but refuted the assertion of disinterest. The council acknowledged Mr Edwards past efforts but were most grateful to Councillor Martin who at his own expense was preparing a revised map using modern technology which would result in a colour coded map.


The Minutes of 6th November 2018 Council meeting were accepted unanimously.
