20s Plenty.  HH had been to an online presentation which she had found compelling.  She gave a short summary.  Clerk to buy some 20s Plenty stickers, suggesting 50 for £50.


Grit bins.  RW had checked the levels in all of the bins and had come up with a good system to keep grit in them without risking the grit going solid.  He is buying small bags as necessary.  Councillors thanked him sincerely for the great deal of work he had done.   


Flooding and a meeting with EA.  The EA will attend on 10 Feb as part of the Council meeting.  Cllrs gave their agreement to a plan devised by the Clerk and Lucy Jarvis, the contact at the EA, that there would be a site visit beforehand at 3 pm with a small number of people, followed by a Council meeting at 4 pm where the EA would be able to take questions.  There should also be a rep from the County Council attending.  The meeting will take place in the church. 


  1. Highway Matters. Clerk has reported mud and debris on Leam Lane.  It was agreed in principle to run electricity to Jubilee Gardens, to power the Christmas lights; a line over the track had been taken out twice by the bin lorry.  JSM very kindly said the power could come from The Old Post Office with control at his end.  Further details to be discussed at the next meeting.
