Dunholme Parish Council

A remote meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Monday 1st March 2021


Flooding in the village

The Parish Council are aware of several flooding issues within the village.  Please be assured that we are communicating with the necessary external bodies to try and alleviate these issues as soon as possible.

Kennington Close Play Area Improvements

At the time of writing the new fencing is due to be started this week, so at the time of reading, it should now be installed.  This will mean that there is now a divide between the play area and the main green field.

Whilst dogs can use the playing field area, please ensure they do not enter the play park area.  And please make sure you are picking up after your dog as well.

Whilst in place, all covid-19 restrictions must also be followed whilst using the village play areas.


Mud on roads

There have been several reports of mud on the road – particularly along Honeyholes Lane.  This has been passed onto the contractors in the village in the hope that a road sweep or something similar can be arranged.  Hopefully, with the weather improving slightly, this wont be an issue for much longer.

War Memorial Maintenance

The Parish Council have applied for funding to clean the war memorial.  The application passed the pre application stage and the main application has now been submitted.  We now need to wait to see if we are successful or not.  As the application is for maintenance, rather than conservation, it may be rejected at this stage, but it is always worth a try to get funding where possible.


Oak Wood

A lot of work has been going on in Oak Wood to make it Spring ready.  Soe further snowdrops and bulbs have been planted as well as a couple of new saplings and cutting back some of the over growth.

Going forward with Covid-19 restrictions

Play areas can remain open for exercise only purposes – please ensure that social distancing and hand washing guidelines are followed.  We are washing down the high traffic areas on a regular basis to help keep you safe.

Litter picker – Our litter picker is still out working as she cannot work from home and is a lone worker, therefore she is able to continue.  When you see her out and about please feel free to give her a wave but do remember social distancing regulations.  She does a great job.


Vacant Seats

There are currently 2 vacant seats on the Parish Council – if you are interested in joining us, please contact the Clerk for further information.
