    I have not exactly been inundated with pictures from readers following my request in the last issue. So for the cover this time I have used a new photograph with a similar theme as in the corresponding issue last year. At least it depicts a colourful scene and an interesting spring sky. By way of contrast, on the back page I have inserted a reminder of what the countryside looked like when it used to rain. I apologise if you receive this issue later than usual, due to the fact that there is a Bank Holi-day in the middle of our normal production process. The next issue will be the combined July/August issue so if you have something to announce or talk about in those months - or even in September - start working on it now. sure that you get your items to me by 15th June, three days earlier than usual, so as to avoid disappointment.

    Present: Councillors S. Ulyat, R. Patterson, T. Williams, C. Nicholson and F. Fuller. Members of the public Mr John Cobley, Mrs Sandra Bird and Mr Paddy Tomlinson were also present for part of the meeting. Apologies were received and accepted from M. Deacon (Chairman) and Cllr L. Green, as well as District Cllr H. Shore and PCSO Julie McFaul. B. Coleman (Clerk) was also unable to attend and sent apologies. Minutes of the Meeting of the of the meeting of the 7th April 2011 were proposed, seconded and signed by the Vice-Chairman S. Ulyat as being a true record.

    Members of the Council were reminded that at any time during the meet-ing they could declare an interest. There were no declarations at this point in time. Royal Wedding and Mugs for the Schoolchildren. Cllrs Patterson and Nicholson passed on thanks from Polyplatt and Scampton C of E Schools for the souvenir mugs, which were very gratefully received by pu-pils as a keepsake of the special day. Millenium Project.

    lished in the Village Venture. Following the publication of the Minutes of the Parish Council Meeting held on 7th April concerns were raised by a member of the public on two points: The ceremony which has been planned for June 12th to mark the official opening of the village project /

    not been put right (namely workmanship issues and unfulfilled requirements). A grand opening seems to be in conflict with a previous Minute stating that no opening would take place until the Parish Coun-cil was satisfied that the project had been completed in every detail.

    case of this has recently been brought to the attention of the Parish Council. After a lengthy discussion on the current situation, with regard to the Millennium Project, it was decided to hold a vote on whether there should be an official opening unless the project was completed to our re-quirements. Cllr Ulyat suggested that, from his extensive experiences in the building industry, if the project was officially opened there would be little incentive for the builder to return and very difficult to enforce any snagging corrections. The matter had been discussed on many previous occasions but no vote on any resolution had been taken.

    A second issue was raised regarding the legality of the payment made to LCC for the sum of 2000, being

    ing that this sum was not taken out of the village precept, but out of the remainder of the funds raised

    BSA Millennium Committee). Mr Cobley questioned the legality of the decision, and suggested that advice should be sought for the dis-persal of the remaining Millennium Funds.

    At this point, 8:30pm, the members of the public left the meeting and thanked the outgoing Parish Coun-cillors for their hard work in all the past years of service. Further to point no. 1, it was proposed (RP), seconded (TW) and voted unanimously that the open- ing ceremony should NOT go ahead until all outstanding issues have been resolved. AGM 2011 To be held at Polyplatt School on 10th May 2011. Refreshments to be provided (M. Deacon and B. Coleman to organise). It is hoped that as many members of the public as possible will attend. Opening of V Cafe at Scampton Estate The caf is now open and running well three days a week, run by volunteers. It is hoped to open the cafe in the evenings in the future for teenagers. There is no website yet, but RP suggested a link should be made to the Parish Council website. SU suggested that signage be put up to give non-estate residents directions to the caf. TW to ask Gill Angel regarding doing this
