RESOLVED that the Parish Council make representations to S.B.C. for another Traffic Impact Assessment to be carried out, in view of the new estimated housing figures.

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter noting that as we are probably aware PPI forums were established in December 2003 and since that time the PPI forum for TENYAS has been trying to improve ambulance services.

In order to continue to try and improve services, they are seeking our help.  As the area covered by the forum is some 4,500 square miles and with only eight Members, they would find it an impossible task to try and visit all towns and villages to ascertain views on ambulance services, both emergency and patient transport services.

Members of the forum would be grateful if the Parish Council has any concerns that they forward them to the North Bank Forum, as this will help them put together a much broader picture of the services people receive.

NALC is delighted to be supporting The Trafalgar Weekend this year and would like to encourage its members to participate by organising Trafalgar Day lunches, dinners or parties, using local produce and regional specialities, on Friday 21st October 2005 along with lighting beacons that evening.  These events could take place in a pub, restaurant, hotel, town or village hall.  Not only will this initiative be good for British agriculture, providing those taking part with a ‘True Taste of Britain’ but well-deserving charities are also set to benefit from the events organised over this Weekend.

 

On Sunday 23rd October those towns and parishes with churches in their area are being encouraged to take part in the Weekend by organising a ‘Service of Commemoration’, remembering the crews from both sides who fought and died during the Battle of Trafalgar, as well as ringing their bells at 7 pm that night.
