Any Other Business:
The Clerk had been contacted by a member of the village complaining about the dirty state of the telephone box in Main Street. The clerk explained that all telephone boxes with very little use were to be removed and the one in Barkston Ash fitted the criteria. The timescale for removal is not known.
Catherine Daniels said that she felt that the Christmas tree supplied this year was the best one we have had. Several people had commented on it. Further Christmas lights through the village are to be considered for the 2017 season. Andrew Chapman is to research the availability of a suitable electrical supply.
Catherine Turton had spoken to Mr Power, head, Barkston Ash Primary School regarding the ‘Young Enterprise’ scheme run in school in the autumn term. Mr Power would like to use some of the money raised to benefit the village. A defibrillator had been suggested.
Catherine Turton is to investigate those available from providers such as Yorkshire Air Ambulance and British Heart Foundation. The Parish Council would share the initial cost and be responsible for any annual maintenance charge.
The clerk is to ask Church Fenton Parish Council who supplied the one at their Village Hall.
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, 28th March 2017.
