* PARISH COUNCIL NOTICES *

The Annual Council meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Wednesday 8th May 2019.   7 Parish Councillors, District Councillor Diana Rodgers and 2 members of the public were in attendance.


New Councillors, New Council

This month, we saw 4 new parish councillors join us following the uncontested election in May 2019.  We welcomed Cllrs Dr Karen Savage, Sarah Keetley, Chloe Keetley and Dan Rimmer.  We were also re-joined by Cllr Matt Burre.

Cllrs Tony Pache, Anjum Sawhney and Nick Rodgers also remained on the Council following the election.

Cllr Tony Pache was elected as Chairman for the coming year and Cllr Nick Rodgers was elected as vice chairman for the coming year.

This is a lot of change at one time, so let’s see what the next year brings.


Change of Meeting Days

Parish Council meetings will now be held every 1st Monday of the month, unless it is a bank holiday when it will be held on the 1st Tuesday of the month.

This is to allow Council representatives to attend outside body meetings and report findings back to full council.

This will take immediate effect.

 


 2019/20 projects

There are a number of projects in the pipeline already for 2019/20 including new and improved CCTV around the village hall and bowls club area, we have entered the best kept village competition, we are hoping to start a speed awareness initiative and continue to improve the look of the village.  If you have any ideas, please do contact the Clerk or come along to a meeting.

 Best Kept Village Competition

It has been decided that Dunholme will be entered into the 2019 Best Kept Village competition.  When walking around the village there is an array of colour, wildlife and pretty village scenery.  In depth comments will be received from independent judges which will then be used by Councillors as a means to improve the village.  Please help by keeping areas around you clean and tidy.

 Speed Awareness Initiative

Speeding in the village is becoming a real issue.  Despite the electronic signs that are moved around the village, there are still some red areas that are causing concerns.  We are therefore looking into starting up a speed awareness initiative whereby volunteers use a speed radar gun to monitor car speeds at designated areas.  These details are then sent onto the police who send the necessary notices to offenders.  All training and equipment is provided and so if you can spare some time please do contact the Clerk.
