Cllr Parrott and Cllr Carr (with help from his grandson) have been hard at work trying to improve internet speeds in Shillingford Abbot. They have signed up to the Community Fibre Partnership and the next stage will be looking for grants and funding.
Update - residents who have expressed an interest in the scheme are requested to submit their paperwork so funding can be secured.
The Parish Council are considering investing in vehicle activated speed signs in 2022, and will be looking at locations and costs over the coming months to see if the proposal is viable.
Whilst the actual memorial is in a good state of repair, the brickwork surrounding the Peamore War Memorial is in need of re-pointing work and the parish council will be looking to obtain grants to enable the work to be carried out.
The annual litter pick has been postponed.
The Parish Council received no planning applications for comment at the April meeting.
The Parish Council are aware that residents have been asking if the grass on the village green could be cut. As the Parish Council are not responsible for the village green and the trustees refuse to allow us to cut the grass, we are not in a position to cut it.
On Sunday 21st March, the census is coming! The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years and gives a snapshot of all the people in England and Wales. The information collected is vitally important for government and local authorities as it helps them plan services such as healthcare, education, public transport, libraries and support services. The data informs other official statistics, and contributes to policy decisions such as local government funding allocations. Filling in the census is crucial to shaping communities over the next 10 years.
The census website has plenty of information about the census, how to prepare and how data will be kept safe.
The Village Hall Diary is now available online and we're able to take bookings by email.
