In view of the present restrictions due to the Coronavirus, the Parish Council is planning to hold an extraordinary meeting to discuss a number of emergency proposals to support the most vulnerable among our community. The date of the meeting will be announced shortly.
This will be a 'virtual' meeting and held via a Skype connection to avoid councillors being in physical contact with each other.
The resolutions being proposed are:
The Council resolves to implement the Business Continuity motion suggested by the Association of Local Councils as modified for our purposes.
The Council resolves to appoint a Director of Communications to coordinate its on line contacts with the Parishioners. This to include taking control of the village web-site, setting up a Council twitter feed and Facebook profile, communicating with the Emergency team and the Parish Council Chair and Vice Chair.
The Council resolves to immediately set aside £5000 from its reserves to use for the relief of the Parish during the duration of the current emergency. This fund to be made available to the Emergency team by consultation with the Chair and Vice Chair.
The Council resolves to set up an Emergency team led by Steven Allinson immediately to coordinate relief work within the Parish.
