Notes of the Tarvin Parish Council Meeting held on 26th April 2021.
These notes are produced to give residents a timely update of the main issues discussed at the meeting, which was conducted remotely using Zoom software. They are not the official minutes.
1. The meeting began by electing a Chairman for the coming year. The previous Chairman did not stand again but nominated Councillor Rob Ford as Chairman. Councillor Ford was elected unopposed. As no councillor put themselves forward to be Vice-Chairman the position remains vacant and will be reconsidered at a future meeting.
2. The PC considered a request for more public seats on the King George Playing Field. After discussion it was agreed to delay a decision until the July meeting when it will be considered alongside other spending proposals, including one scheme for the playing field.
3. The PC will be taking part in the Great British Spring Clean on the first Saturday in June (5 June). Volunteers to take part in the Tarvin clean-up should meet at the Community Centre at 9.30 am. Oscroft volunteers should meet on the Green at 9.30 am. Litter pickers, bibs and rubbish bags will be available and picking areas assigned. Those taking part can do as much or as little as they wish, but it is recommended that the clean-up end at 12.30 pm. Filled bags should be left beside the nearest litter bin, and bibs/litter pickers returned to the original assembly point
4. There was a brief update on the PC’s use of Facebook, which seems to be successful so far. Those councillors who have been developing the Facebook presence will also take over responsibility for the PC’s website.
