Parish Council is seriously short of Parish Councillors. We are down
to five and this is having a detrimental effect on the running of the
of the functions of the Parish Council:-
payment of contractors as they fall due.
and arranging contracts for Grass cutting at various sites around the
parish and any other work that requires doing.
Parish Council is the point of contact and link to the City and
maintenance of the Play Area.
Parish Trust:- Council members are Trustees of the Parish Trust.
Hall:- the Council are Custodian Trustees of the Hall.
Parish Council holds 6 meetings a year in May, July, September,
November, January and March. Parish Councillors are also Trustees of
the Parish Trust and the Trust holds 2 meeting a year normally prior
to a PC meeting. Trust meetings last 30 minutes and Parish Council
meetings approx one and a half hours.
PC does not have specific sub committees because there have not been
enough councillors for many years but it would be good to have one to
look after the play area and fund raise to repair and refurbish it.
Some items are coming to the end of their life and they would have to
be removed before they became unsafe.
Parish Clerk Allison Riddell keeps us on the right track. There are
also various training courses that can be attended and Councillors
can also volunteer to attend meeting of various groups in Carlisle
and report back to the PC any relevant information.
interested in joining this very reduced Parish Council up to full
strength please contact:-
