Jackson's 'laptops'

A letter has been received from Jackson's regarding our application for a laptop. Unfortunately, we were not successful, but the Council has been put on their list should further laptops become available.


Yorkshire Water

The Chairman has been unable to contact Trevor Smith of Costain's.  All phone calls and messages have been ignored.  It was agreed that a letter be sent to Costain's regarding this unsatisfactory situation.   The land registration problem is to be sorted out between Mr. Brian Meadley, Yorkshire Water and Mr. Meadley's solicitors.
