Coffee Morning - 2017 planning
With regard to next year’s rota, there have been some alterations from the church congregation. There was discussion about the need for the church community to take an increased share of the load in running the monthly coffee mornings. Judy will speak to the PCC to try to encourage more support.
LC will circulate updated rota.
The Village Signs
Village representatives have met with Richmondshire District Council to discuss the cost of replacement of signs at the edges of the village. It is implied from the response of the council that the use of the old wishing well to house a sign would be acceptable. Alternatives are:
A new like-for–like sign with two posts - £450
Adaptation of and use of the old well - £250
A1L2B – have funds to donate to villages affected by the building of the bypass which Cllr Shepherd is to apply for, to cover this cost and the refurbishment of the phone box. The committee will work with the parish council to complete the erection of signs.
WS and LC will visit Mr Ward to let him know our plans.
