The Parish Council Meeting 

Next meeting date – Tuesday 4th May 2021 at 7.30pm via zoom.

 

 

If you have any issues you wish to bring to Councillors attention or any ideas you would like to put forward, why not join in. 



* PARISH COUNCIL NOTICES *

Due to the legislation of remote meetings ending in May 2021, all future meetings of the Parish Council will be held face to face (unless Government guidelines change and dictate otherwise).  All residents are welcome to attend to these meetings – the next one being held 28th June 201, but all must follow covid-19 guidelines in relation to social distancing, face masks and hand sanitising.

 

Vacancies on the Parish Council

There are currently 2 vacant seats on Dunholme Parish Council.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact the Clerk for further information or see the notice on the Parish Council noticeboard.

 

Weed Control

It is the time of the year again when weeds around the village are starting to grow at a very quick rate.  Several reports have been received about residents spraying and cutting down weeds on public green spaces.  Please be mindful when you are maintaining your property that you do not spray and damage any Parish Council owned land.  General maintenance is fine, but some reports include large areas of hedgerow and vegetation that could have been housing wildlife.

If you see a problem area, please let the Clerk know so that they correct procedures can be followed.

 

Overgrown hedges and trees

It was decided at the meeting that contact will be made with residents who have overgrown hedges/trees on their boundary that go over onto public highways.  There is an increased number lately and some footpaths are getting difficult to navigate.  If you receive one of these letters, please do not take offence – it is a polite request and should be read as that.

 

Outdoor Bowls Green

Please note that this area of the village is as its name – a bowling green.  It is not a space to play football.  Several people have been seen to climb the gate and have started playing football on the outdoor bowls green.  The members and committee spend a lot of time throughout the year making sure that the green is in a remarkably high standard ready for the summer competition season.  By people playing on it, damage has been done that now needs to be paid for to fix.  Extra security is also being investigated this.  This area is covered by CCTV and so the Council is fully aware of who and what is taking place.

 

Litter Picking

The Clerk has a couple of additional litter picking sticks available for use by the public.  If this is something you would be interested in when you go one your daily walks, please arranged collection from the Clerk for a period of time.

 

Fly Tipping

There have been several fly tipping incidents in the village lately that are getting a lot of attention.  Please be assured that when Beverly sees these, she informs the Clerk, and it is then arranged to be collected by WLDC.  Whilst this may not be an immediate collection, it is done as soon as possible once all teams have been informed.

 

Website

The Clerk is currently undertaking an overhaul of the Councils website page.  It is still very much a work in progress to get everything up to date.  If there is anything you think needs to be included on the site, please contact the Clerk, and let her know.

If you run a club within the village and would like to be included, please email the Clerk with a brief description of the club and any contact details.
