Quizzing the parish council

Having your say
An audience of just over twenty came along on Saturday 9 October to hear an update from Old Buckenham Parish Council on their latest activities. This public meeting in the village hall was aimed at giving people in the village an opportunity to have their say outside of the formal parish council meetings so it was a shame that more people did not turn up.
The usual subjects such as the condition and management of the village Green provided some lively discussion. Some people also felt that the success of the revamped children’s playground was sometimes causing problems because of the number of cars parked outside the church and the neighbouring properties. An update was given on work going on to improve facilities at the village hall and the question of when VAT incurred on such projects could be reclaimed was given a good airing.
Tim Ing, vice-chairman of the parish council, had the responsibility of chairing this meeting and said that the points brought up would be taken back for discussion at the next parish council meeting in November. It is hoped to provide a fuller report on the meeting when the official minutes are made available.
A fuller report was posted on Wednesday 13 October
