Notes on Parish Council Annual Meeting – 11 April

The Annual Parish Meeting was held in the Methodist Hall.  There were apologies from Councillors Clarke, Jelfs, Lyons and District Councillor McHugh.
Chairman  Mrs Diane Bratt welcomed the well-attended meeting and the minutes of last year’s meeting were approved.
She then introduced the speaker Carol MacKay, County Emergency Planning Officer who gave a very interesting and enlightening talk about the plans for the county in the event of any major emergency that should arise.
Following the successful meeting there are now a number of useful leaflets for residents, available on the PC web site, on the ‘Community Emergency Planning’ page. There are leaflets about Business Continuity for home workers and small businesses, a snow guide, hedges and tree, preparing to evacuate and many more. Please visit the PC web site for more details http://www.adderburypc.co.uk/community-emergency-planning/

St Patrick’s Night Bash

The Party in the Park committee would like to thank everyone who supported us on 17 March. Overall, our net proceeds from ticket sales, bar, raffle, photos and sales of Easter decorations and novelties were £1668. This will help us enormously with the cost of putting on the party, which is expected be over £7000 this year and will more than cover the cost of sound and lighting for the main stage and acoustic tent.
