Brian Badger was welcomed as a Parish Councillor.  Gwyneth Adams had not sought re-election and was thanked for her 11 years service on the Parish Council.

Election of Officers

David Hill was re-elected as Chairman.
Grenville Moore was elected as Vice Chairman.

Declarations of Acceptance of Office and Financial and Other Interest documents  were signed.  These will be forwarded to Stratford District Council.

Matters Discussed

Annual Parish Meeting

This meeting took place on 13th April with two persons attending.  The following issues were discussed:  an explanation of the precept was sought, cattle grid repair on Noland Road requested, and the question of planting on the verge outside “Stonecroft”.


Application to change use of land from agricultural to garden behind Whatcote Road had been refused.  Permission had been received for new garden wall, 2 car garage and workshop at Whatcote Park.  Application for outside condensing boiler at The Stables was returned with no objection.


The Annual Account Return, bank reconciliation, notes to the account and variation to the accounts were presented for signature.  These documents will now go through the audit procedure.  Receipt and Payment book for year ended March 2010 was signed as correct.

Clerk accepted an honorarium of £150 (including expenses) for the year ended 31 March 2010.  Mandatory Insurance was agreed for payment at £339.88.


Repairs to the cattle grid on Noland Road will be carried out later this month.

A question has been asked about the encroachment onto the verge outside “Stonecroft” and whether it is acceptable.

Due to budget restrictions highway drainage on Main Street cannot be carried out.  Highway drainage is designed to cope with water that falls upon the highway and not extra surface water from higher ground.  Stratford District Council will monitor the situation to see if there is a way of dealing with the water prior to it reaching the highway.

NHS – Horton General Hospital
