Other Business

The leylandii behind the tennis courts were causing something of a nuisance to the club so it was agreed the Playing Field and recreational Facilities

Committee would take a look and suggest a way forward. At the same meeting the Committee would view
the church paths in light of the brief report from the ecclesiastical surveyor.

Concerns had been raised with Councillors about the pavements in icy weather. This matter had been considered in the past and the Council had agreed not to manage said gritting. In order to be covered by the County Council’s

insurance a task force of NAMED volunteers was required but it would still be
impossible to cover all areas. It is not
part of the Street Cleaner’s job specification to shovel snow. Responsibility for clearing the highway is
that of Suffolk County Council. If
residents have any comments/complaints/suggestions please contact the Clerk.

The Council was informed that PC Tim Green was now back at work. This news was

welcomed and it will be good to see him back.
PCSO Steven Long has done a sterling job, with his colleagues, during
the time PC Green was away. Crime in the
village was down on the same period last year.


Dog Fouling:

The newly formed youth football teams have begun their training at Westhall. It was very disappointing to find that the playing area was littered with dog excrement. It only takes a moment to clear up after your

pet so please, be a responsible owner and remember to take your poop bags with
you when you walk your dog and leave the village a clean place to walk and play

Housing Needs Survey:

Suffolk ACRE’s Housing Needs survey will be with you shortly. Please take the few minutes required to complete the questionnaire and return it in the pre-paid envelope. Even if you or a member of your family does not require affordable housing at this time any information or views you can
add will be most useful.

Anonymous Telephone Calls:

A call was left on the Clerk’s voicemail during her holiday which had the telephone number withheld and was made anonymously. Any comments cannot be treated seriously nor acted upon if they are made in this way so please ensure you leave contact details when telephoning with a comment or complaint.

The next meeting of the Parish Council: 08 February 2010 at 7.30pm

Clerk to the Parish Council: Carol A Smy tel: 01379 384679


**please make non-emergency calls to the Clerk between 0830 and 1800hrs Monday to Friday only**
