Clerks Report and Supporting Information for the Agenda

Yarcombe Parish Council Clerks Report in October 2022 for the 7th November meeting


Clerk Correspondence received and on-going issues during October relating to relevant issues for Yarcombe Parish Council:


  • Email received from Royal British Legion Industries about getting Parish Council ready for the upcoming national period of Remembrancethis November by installing a veteran-made Tommy Statue.


The Tommy acts as a poignant and permanent reminder of the fallen, allowing  across the nation to come together and collectively support our Armed Forces community not only during the Remembrance period, but all year round.


To further decorate your Parish for the Remembrance period, Tommy Lamp Post Signs and Remembrance Flags are available, allowing you to show your support over the month of November.

the state of the roads and the quality of repairs in the parish and they are considering inviting

offices of DCC to a future meeting.  They have asked Luppitt, Upottery, Monkton, Stockland,

Offwell, Dalwood and Yarcombe Parish Councils whether they wish to be part of the meeting?   I have replied and said we would and David Barnes has agreed to attend once we have a date.
