At the Annual Parish Council Meeting on 10th May, Cllr Peter Barwell was re-elected as Chair and Cllr John Parrott was re-elected as Vice Chair.
Cllr Carr (with help from his grandson) and Cllr Parrott have been hard at work trying to improve
internet speeds in Shillingford Abbot and part of Shillingford St George. They have signed up to
the Community Fibre Partnership and there has been enough uptake to go ahead with the
upgrade; BT Openreach has been surveying the area and Cllr Carr will be contacting them to
find out when the upgrade will take place.
We are providing a FOC defibrillator refresher training course on 27th May 2022 6:30 - 8:30pm in Shillingford Village Hall. Please contact Cllr Claire Dummett or the Clerk if you would like to attend.
Queens Jubilee 2022
A committee has been formed in the village with a focus to raise funds towards a project for the Queens Platinum Jubilee next year. The plan is to upgrade and beautify all four village signs.
This will involve having a gate structure made for each main sign, also a wooden trough to go under them, to be planted up with seasonal flowers, the other two signs will be replaced
A cream tea has already raised £262.00 towards the project and the Parish Council have gifted a further £500.
Whilst the actual memorial is in a good state of repair, the brickwork surrounding the Peamore War Memorial is in need of re-pointing work and the parish council will be looking to obtain grants to enable the work to be carried out.
The Parish Council had no planning applications for discussion at its recent meeting.
The Parish Council is aware that residents have been asking if the grass on the village green could be cut. As the Parish Council is not responsible for the village green and the trustees refuse to allow us to cut the grass, we are not in a position to cut it.
The Village Hall Diary is now available online and we're able to take bookings by email.
