Please can you let the Clerk know asap if you would like to attend to confirm your place as numbers will be limited.
Another litter pick is being arranged on Saturday 30th October 2021. If you are able to come and help please meet outside the Village Hall at 10.00 am. All equipment provided.
New benches for the Esplanade
The Parish Council have been successful in securing funding through the Welcome Back Fund for seven new benches for the seafront and are liaising with the Isle of Wight Council about a suitable location for them.
Village Green Toilets
It has been just over a year now since the toilets were refitted and modernised at the parish’s expense (fully owned by the Village, not the Isle of Wight Council) and the feedback we get from the many users both local and those on holiday is that the small charge to use them (20p) is worth paying for. The daily maintenance and cleaning is payed for and managed by Gurnard Parish Council and we would be grateful should you notice any building issues, vandalism or misuse of this village asset, to please either contact us directly, or our contractor Danfo, on 01253 593141 (a 24/7 phone line which is displayed on the side of the building).
There is still one remaining vacancy on the Parish Council. If you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor, or just interested to see what goes on, please come along and observe one of our meetings.
Next Parish Council Meeting
The next full Parish Council meeting will be held in the village hall at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 13th October 2021. There is always an opportunity at the start of the meeting for members of the public to make comments and ask questions. Meeting confirmation and the agenda can be found on the Parish Council notice board on Worsley Road and the Parish Council’s website www.gurnardpc.co.uk If there is anything you feel that the Parish Council could help with, please contact the Clerk to the Parish Council, Mrs. Katie Riley, telephone 07305 013718 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
