Bramley Parish Council – April 2010 – Jane Payne
All change at Bramley Parish Council! With two Councillors standing down and another looking to move out of the village anybody who’s ever considered standing for the first tier of local government should apply now. Eligibility criteria have been posted on each of the village notice-boards and applications should be made to the Parish Clerk (email firstname.lastname@example.org or 01256 883734); any of the currently serving Councillors will be happy to discuss the role with potential applicants. After a number of years admirably serving the Parish Council Gill Fowler has decided to relinquish the role of Parish Clerk. Councillors are very sad to see Gill leave and anybody interested in applying for this part-time, salaried role, should apply to the Council by 22nd May. More information can be obtained from Gill (email email@example.com or 01256 883734).
There were few other new topics discussed at the meeting. Councillors had previously agreed to review how future requests for donations should be handled and a new draft proforma has been circulated for comment to ensure consistency in the process. The proforma should ensure that funds are directed for the benefit of Bramley residents and groups and not simply to any group that might apply.
Looking to the future Cllr John Ferguson has solicited the assistance of B&DBC to help produce a feasibility study looking at ‘Community Facilities’ for the village. Up to £10,000 will be set aside from community funds to ensure that this exercise is professionally run and to ensure that any proposals are properly evidenced. Cllrs Ferguson, Wood and Payne will discuss the Parish Council’s initial thoughts with the Village Hall Trustees at their April meeting.
Full meeting minutes are available on notice boards, at the Post Office and on the village website (www.bramleyhampshire-pc.gov.uk). The next Parish Council meeting is on Monday 17th May, 7.30pm at the Village Hall.
