Matters Arising


The pot holes on the road leading to Fleet House have been filled in, but the main work in the village has not yet been started.


Declaration of Interest

Cllr. L. Payne declared an interest in the Skeffling Village Hall item.


Set Back

Cllrs. R. Newsam, M. Turnbull and J. F. Robinson attended a meeting of Welwick Parish Council to find out their views on Set Back.  Welwick were wary about the project.  Mr. M. Wilkie made some good points as he has a great deal of local knowledge.  ABP are creating a computer model on the Set Back scheme.  It was agreed that more knowledge on the scheme is needed, to be followed soon after by a meeting with the Environment Agency.  The meeting with Welwick Parish Council was very productive and it was felt that headway was made.  It was agreed that a vague outline of our views be given to the Gazette.

Cllr. R. Newsam proposed that a letter of thanks be sent to Miss Sarah Clappison, Clerk to Welwick Parish Council.

Seconded:  Cllr. P. Payne

Vote:  carried unanimously


Skeffling Village Hall Grant Application

The work on the village hall is progressing very well.  Most of the paperwork has been done, and the first part of the grant received.  This is in the sum of £2,666.35 Mr. David Small has donated £30 towards materials, and Mr Pete Simmons has donated a days work and some timber.  There is still guttering and down pipes to be done.  The materials should be delivered within the next few days.  The majority of the work has been done and many voluntary hours have been worked. On behalf of the Parish Council, Cllr. J. F. Robinson thanked Mrs. Beadle and Cllr. L. Payne for bringing the possibility of the grant to our attention.  The refurbishment will be a great benefit to all who use the Village Hall.
