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.
