HICKLETON PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

The PC submitted its comments on DMBC Local Plan in support of a bypass for Hickleton.

It as been agreed not to proceed with taking up a lease for Lady Mary Walk as no benefit could be identified from taking on the liability, PC will continue to push DMBC to maintain trees.

Following the village meeting and meetings with DMBC an Hawthorn hedge, DMBC wanted a native edge, is to be planted on WCMG plus 2 new trees.

The PC accounts were qualified this year due to no risk assessment being carried out with two further issues identified which did not affect accounts.

The PC now own the Telephone Kiosk outside the club which will now be turned into a book exchange once it has been repainted and cleaned out.

Council minutes and accounts can be found on the village web site www.hickletonetalk.co.uk

Work was carried out by the Halifax Estate to start to restore the Winston Churchill Memorial Area on the Fir Tree Close side of the road with a view to the Pariah Council taking on a lease to maintain the area going forward.
Repairs to the Village Hall wall as now started, many thanks to Mr Joe Pierce for providing the scaffolding.

Correspondence from DMBC regarding pruning of trees on Lady Mary Walk, they are very unhappy at what they call “vandalism” of the trees. The PC therefore asks that no more pruning should be done by anyone.
Hickleton Hall has been advertised as for sale at £2m but planning permission for the conversion is still pending from DMBC.

HICKLETON PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

At the last meeting it was decided once again not to increase the Parish Precept for 2014/15.
Working with local residents and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust the council is supporting a project that is aimed at improving the condition of the open space in Lady Mary View. A meeting was held in the club where YWLT outlined the proposal being put forward.
The age old issue of dog fouling was discussed it was agreed to place round the village the following notice –

“Failing to remove dog fouling is a criminal offence. Any person caught committing this offence in Doncaster will receive a £50 Fixed Penalty Notice (FNP), which could lead to a fine of up to £1,000 in the Magistrates Court if the notice is unpaid. Persistent offenders will not be given the option of a FNP, as the council will pursue a prosecution in court for such behaviour. Please note there are exemptions from the legislation for guide dogs and those people with mobility problems that do not allow them to be able to remove their dogs faeces”

It is the council’s intention to enforce this policy but depend on villagers identifying offenders.
Its time again for you to nominate your candidates for the Ken Keen award, this is given annually to someone who as contributed to the community or for exceptional achievements. Please let your Parish councillor have your nomination ASAP outlining why you are putting them forward.

NEWS FROM VILLAGE HALL MGT COMMITTEE

Over Christmas the various events, children’s party, carols under the tree and new year party were all very well supported and a good time had by everyone.
At the last meeting the committee decided after long discussion to stop serving food in the club. Analysis of the costs showed that to continue with food would very quickly have resulted in the club losing money and its future put at risk. The committee also agreed to establish free Lifetime Honorary membership for anyone over 70 years old, if you want to take advantage of this please see John Edge, Alan Watford or Gordon Wordsworth.

The committee met recently to put together a programme of events through the coming year, a list was agreed and work is on going to make these happen. The events include Mothers Day lunch, more music nights, and free pizza during England’s world cup matches, beer festival and more themed food events. More details as soon as details finalised. Any more ideas will be appreciated.
An application to the Banks Windfarm Community fund has been submitted to start to improve seating upstairs.

The committee meets once a quarter.
The next meeting will be Thursday 6th March in the Village Hall anyone welcome to attend.
