Parish Council
Graeme Whiting was co-opted as a Council member. There is still one vacancy, anyone interested see any Councillor. The Council thought that this year's Carnival was outstanding, and a letter of congratulations is to be sent to the PTFA. It was reported that the Police had actually responded to two recent calls very efficiently. Grants were given for the maintenance of Northwold and Whittington churchyards. More children are using Whittington Playground, but motorists are driving carelessly. More complaints have been received about dog fouling, particularly in Pinfold lane and on the Recreation Ground. Jeanette Eyles was re-nominated as School Governor. Play equipment on the Recreation Ground has been checked and is in good condition.
