Although funding for public activities and improvements is becoming harder to source the
Parish Council are trying to press ahead to access some of this for the benefit of residents and visitors alike. Projects under consideration include a major refurbishment of the Public Toilets, repointing of sections of the Churchyard wall and repairs to the Bus Shelter. Tenders have been sent out and it is hoped that interested persons will be able to quote to do this work, but if anyone else wishes to be considered please get in touch with any Member of the PC or with The Clerk.
An application to replace the eroded plaques on the War Memorial is also being
prepared and if successful will mean that the names of all who served in the First World War can be added to the Memorial.
The winter weather is starting to make itself felt and Highways are constantly being asked to carry out repairs to potholes and to water leaks, sometimes they respond but frequently they deem that the eroding road surfaces do not warrant them doing any work. Salting in times of frost is going ahead but not into the minor roads and Keith as Caretaker tries very hard to reach into most corners whenever possible.
Members have been concerned that some planning applications to small properties include extending them and then these properties become holiday lets, this concern is to be followed up with the National Park because these homes and those who use them will no longer support the School and other vital aspects of community life.
