THE EARL OF CHESTERFIELD PUB
We're in the final part of our refurbishments here at The Earl of Chesterfield! Come and see our new coffee area to enjoy a drink and read a paper on the sofa. Also being put in is new wooden flooring along the back of the lounge area making it look much brighter by the fire. We've painted and cleaned up in the snug bar making it much more appealing.

To ensure everyone receives information regarding any village events, could you please let Bev have your e-mail details. If you do not have e-mail, let her know your phone number and you will be contacted separately.
This is again proving to be a huge problem around the village streets and along footpaths. Action will be taken against offenders. It is necessary not only to bag the waste but also to put the bags into the bins provided. Hopefully the provision of extra bins will help with this recurring problem.
PRECIS OF PARISH COUNCIL MINUTES held on Wednesday 27 March 2019

CLERK’S REPORT AND PARISH COUNCIL ELECTION

REPORT FROM THE DISTRICT AND COUNTY COUNCIL MEMBER

She also commented on the fact that all libraries were being kept open and that the HS2 project was going ahead. There was no definite news on what would happen to the site of the power station at Ratcliffe on Soar once the planned closure took place.
· Coun. Lawrence said the Borough Council were winding down towards the end of their
4-year term of office and new committees would be formed following their elections on 2 May. He said he was not standing for re-election but had enjoyed his 16 years in office. The Parish Council gave a warm vote of thanks to him for his service to the village and his help to the local community.
PUBLIC SESSION LIMITED TO 15 MINUTES
· A resident was told the new litter bin on Stoke Ferry Lane had been erected.
· The road sweeping service was carried out on a rota system by Rushcliffe Borough Council and no direct charge was made to the parish for it. If the Council asked for a special visit for road cleaning work then there will be a charge.
