Wheelie Bin Speed Limit Stickers

The PC will be purchasing some 30mph and 20mph wheelie bin stickers to be available on a first come first served basis.

Grass Verges

The Clerk advised that the verge on the west side of Sutton Lane near the High Street junction was no longer on Wiltshire Council’s list as they do not own it.  Land Registry searches have revealed that the verge seems to be another pocket of unregistered land.  Wiltshire Council could be asked to cut it if visibility to motorists becomes impeded at all.

Talk to the School Council

Cllr P Jones gave a presentation to the Primary School’s School Council on the role of the Parish Council and its Councillors. The Clerk was asked to invite them to attend the next PC Meeting.

High Street Flowerbed

Wiltshire Council have now carried out the repairs to the dry stone wall.
