3. CHAIRMAN’S REPORT FOR COUNCIL YEAR 2018-2019

The Chairman read out her Report for the Council Year 2018-2019

4. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

  • Potential for Defibrillator in the Village – a flyer seeking residents’ views on obtaining a Defibrillator had been distributed to every household in the village and although there had been a majority of positive responses, the response was extremely low and therefore had to be considered as a low appetite for the project. Louise Molesworth stated that there is going to be a talk about Defibrillators at Wansford Surgery on 11th June 2019 to ensure people understand how the defibrillators can be used. The Parish Council had hoped to fund this through an Augean Grant Application but it is not classed as a Community Project by Grantscape, the company managing the applications and is therefore not eligible. Martin Lewis will pursue alternative grant applications but it was agreed to reconsider whether or not to obtain a Defibrillator in a year’s time when there may be more appetite
  • Dog Fouling – it was acknowledged that this is a local and national problem. It was agreed to produce a flyer for distribution to every household in the village asking residents to collect and bin their dog foul
  • Speeding Through the Village – it was agreed to add speeding to the flyer (above) and contact the Highways Department at Peterborough City Council to ask if traffic calming measures (rumble strips/speed bumps/20 mph signs painted on the road) could be considered for the village

5. CLOSURE

There being no further business to discuss, the Chairman closed the meeting at 7.15 pm
