Chairman's Report


In his annual report the Chairman thanked the Councillors and volunteers for the tremendous amount of work they have done this year.  It has been a very busy year, with some projects ending and some beginning.


The play area has been of benefit to the children, and they are certainly enjoying the swings and other facilities.  There is still more to do, and plans are being put in place to create more for the children when time allows.


Main Road certainly looks better after it's face lift.  New kerbing has improved the look of the village, and helped to stop vehicles cutting into the grass verges.  The bus shelters have also had new roofs and been painted.  This work has not been completed yet, but arrangements have been made to finish it soon.


The biggest project of the year has been obtaining grants for the Wind Turbine. This is now in place and has been producing electricity for almost three months. As well as the Wind Turbine, the grants covered a complete heating system for the Village Hall, point of use hot water to the kitchen and toilets, loft insulation and low energy lighting.


More work is needed around the Village Hall to complete the car park and landscaping.


Cllr. M. Turnbull concluded that the success of this year's projects would not have been possible without the dedicated help and support of the village.  Volunteers have given many hours of their time helping with the heavy work, and donations of money, materials and equipment have kept costs down.


Once again he thanked everyone for getting involved and contributing their time and skills to improving and maintaining the facilities in Skeffling.


The meeting was closed at 8 p.m.
