Notes of the Oxhill Parish Council Meeting

Tuesday 13th May 2008 at 8.00pm in the Village Hall

Apologies were received from Gwyneth Adams and Hugh Rowse.

Election of Officers

David Hill was re-elected Chairman.

Tom Heritage was re-elected Vice-Chairman.

Declaration of Acceptance of Office forms were duly signed by Councillors and letters stating no changes to their Declarations of financial and other interests.  These would be sent to Stratford District Council.

Parish Meeting

The Minutes of the Annual Parish Meeting were read.  This meeting held on 8th April was chaired by Tom Heritage and attended by three persons.  There was only one matter arising, that of some rubbish bags being left out days before collection.  This practice can attract vermin and we would ask that rubbish bags be put out as near as possible to the day of collection.

Matters Discussed


The Account book of Receipts and Payments was presented for the year ended 31 March 2008 and signed by the Chairman.

The Audit Account was presented with Notes to the Account, Bank reconciliation, and Variation statement.  The governance statement was completed and signed by the Chairman.

A notice is posted on the Notice Board inviting examination of the accounts.  These can be viewed from 2nd June to 18th July at the clerk’s home, Brookside, Back Lane.

The insurance premium of £306.04 was renewed.  £150 honorarium including expenses, was accepted by the clerk for the year ended 31 March 2008.  A grant of £1000 was given to the Village Hall towards the cost of repairs and improvements to the electrical system.

New Fortnightly Refuse & Re-cycling Service

This service is changing in August.  Each household will have 3 bins. 

BLUE bin for dry recycling (plastic, cardboard, glass, cans, paper, cartons). This replaces the black boxes.

GREY bin replacing the black plastic bags to be used for all non re-cyclables.

GREEN bin continues for all green waste.

From 2009 kitchen waste can also be put in the green bins this will allow kitchen waste to be collected each week, one week in the Grey bin and next week in the Green bin.

Handyperson Service

Age Concern in conjunction with Stratford District Council run a Care and Repair handyperson Service for residents over 60 years of age or with a disability.  The service is for homeowners or those who privately rent.  The minor works carried out are charged at an hourly rate but those who receive benefits could receive free labour.  Their phone number 01926 458125.
