Draft Notes of Parish Council Zoom Meeting – 30 March

Chairman’s Announcements:  There had been discussions with OALC on whether Councillors were prepared to have open meetings again from May onwards but it was their preference to continue with Zoom meetings for the time being.  The Clerk would facilitate this request.
