The leasing of the land adjacent to the cricket ground has now been passed into the hands of solicitors who are acting for the Village Hall & Recreation Committee. The applicants have now been amended from the Parish Council to the VH&RC. The Parish Council has paid £1200 towards the solicitor’s fees. They have also agreed a further maximum £1800 towards the cost of Somerset County Council’s fees, hopefully the full sum will not be needed. Regarding the application to Viridor Credits for the play area, the VH&RC is dealing with this directly.
Regarding the cattle grid leading into Ramscombe, it has been established that it is the Highways Authority who are responsible for the repairs. We have no timescale as to when they intend to start work, please drive carefully and no faster than you did before.
As you will have noticed the phone box at Aley has been expertly refurbished by IBM maintenance. If any parishioners have any suggestions for its use please contact the parish clerk.
Mark Sortwell has kindly offered to build the village hall cabinet for the Remembrance Books free of charge. If anyone wishes to see the books at any time they are currently with Mark.
