A pothole by the Village Hall junction needs filling in; Highways to be contacted.
Highway Verge Cutting
Warwickshire County Council and Stratford District Council have reviewed their budgets for grass cutting and have reduced the number of cuts to five each year. The cutting schedule was questioned in that the late autumn cut does not give protection to wildlife for the winter and would be best used whilst the growing season is at its peak, particularly where visibility is impaired at junctions. A reply will be sent under the Biodiversity Project.
Parish Council Notice Board
The notice board is in a poor state of repair. Grenville Moore agreed to look at having this refurbished.
DATE OF NEXT MEETING
