Discussion / Decisions and Actions required:
• The Village Hall Committee has invited the Parish Council to nominate a representative to be an appointed member of the Hall Committee following the resignation from Lesley Pidgeon your current representative. The terms of our Scheme for administration as a charity approved by the Charity Commission, require the Hall Committee is formed of ‘elected and appointed’ members, and your organisation as a regular user of the Hall is entitled to nominate a representative to be an appointed member of the Hall Committee.
I request you consider this matter and let me know your nomination by the date of our Annual General Meeting, Monday 13th May.
• John Salter Award Nominations – schedule for decision
• Email received from David Colman, Senior Arboricultural Officer – They have been consulted by the Forestry Commission on a felling licence application:
o The application is to fell three areas of mature Douglas Fir on the hill side above and to the north of the A35 on an area known as Red Scrip Plantation. The total area to be felled is 1.37ha and the land is all to be restocked with Douglas Fir following the felling. The area of land is not subject to any statutory controls or protection and the proposal appears to be in accord with normal silvicultural forestry operations. If you have any comments or observations, please could you let me have them by the 4th April.
• Thank- you letter received from Saffron Doble “Soon I am hoping to raise enough money to get a dog bin and the service on it as in many if my pick-ups, me and my Mum find dog bags.

• Later response to above concerns over waste collections “Thank you for your email and I can only apologise that you have had to get in touch with regards to littering from our vehicles
We are working hard with the contractors to try and improve this as we are aware some crews do drive through lanes with the compartment doors open on the vehicle, especially in rural areas such as Yarcombe.
We regularly provide the message to all crews, some of which will take more notice than others. What we are trying to do now is target individual crews/crew members to try and improve the littering issues encountered.”
