Gurnard Parish Council held their meeting remotely in November which looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Members of the public are welcome to attend – please contact the Clerk for login details.
We are pleased that the IWC have confirmed we can proceed with the wishes of the Friends and Family of Rosie for a picnic table on the hard standing at the bottom of The Green. Given the popularity of these tables and space available, the Parish Council will be discussing the possibility of an additional table at their next meeting.
The Parish Council have awarded a grant of £150 to the Friends of Northwood Cemetery to support the cost of CCTV in an attempt to reduce anti-social behaviour on site.
In conjunction with the Police and Trading Standards we will be replacing the ‘No Cold Calling Zone’ signs around the village which have become very faded since their installation in 2007. In the meantime, if you wish to report a rogue trader please call either 101 or 823371.
The Parish Council are challenging the suggestion from the IWC that the pirate ship and butterfly in the play area may need to be removed at the end of the season as they are no longer cost effective to keep repairing. The Parish Council consider the equipment to be solid and whilst we have agreed to ring fence money to upgrade and maintain the playground in the future, we would not want this to be at the cost of the pirate ship.
Various issues have been raised with the Environment Officer for action including a dangerous build-up of seaweed on the concrete beach access steps along Princess Esplanade and fly tipping on The Green.
The Parish Council are supporting Gurnard’s Big Advent Calendar leading up to Christmas this year. If you would like to get involved please contact Anne either by telephone 290307 or email@example.com.
We still have 2 vacancies on the Parish Council. If you are interested in becoming a Councillor, please contact the Clerk for further information.
The next full Parish Council meeting will be held remotely at 6.00 pm on Wednesday 9th December 2020. 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
