Parish Council meeting - dates and venues

  • 21st November 7.30pm at Edlesborough Memorial Hall

A large majority of tenants paid their rents on time and letters have been sent to those still owing. From October 2014 an administration fee will be added to the allotment rents for those not paid by the required date, notices of which appear on the Allotment gates four weeks before collection.

There are currently a few allotments available at Cow Lane and The Green, Edlesborough, please contact the Assistant Clerk, Mrs Penny Pataky, if you wish to take on an allotment.

Extension of Play Area on The Green

All work on the installation of the new play equipment has been completed and RoSPA have inspected and approved everything. The Council hopes that children and their parents will find the additional play equipment - and the new seats - beneficial. The Council apologise to parents and children for having to seal off the complete area while work was in progress due to Health and Safety precautions, but were extremely disappointed to find that some parents were lifting children over the fencing to reach the play equipment despite several notices being displayed. The Parish Council will not be held responsible for any injuries or damage to property whilst notices are in place and when Parish Council notices appear on it’s property they are there for a reason and should be observed at all times, which includes the Bye-Law notices on the Village Green particularly where they refer to dog fouling and keeping dogs under control at all times.
