MINUTES
Minutes of the previous meeting held on 4th September 2002 having been circulated, were confirmed as a true record and signed by the Vice-Chairman.

MATTERS ARISING

Recycle bins; Clerk advised that it would cost 260.00 to soundproof each of the glass recycling bins. The site would require two large (1100litre) bins for green and clear glass. In addition there would be a smaller bin for brown glass which may not need soundproofing as the glass does not drop very far and therefore causes less noise.
We have been advised that it would probably be half the cost to line the smaller bin.
There would also be a large bin for paper.
Clerk to contact Mrs. White to see if there are any similar bins in the area.

Possible closure of Village Shop/Post Office: Steering Committee has been formed and we have been advised that they are very active in progressing the situation.

REPORTS FROM COMMITTEES

Village Hall: Mrs. Lane will take over the duties of Treasurer. Improvements to be made to the Car Park. AGM was well attended.

PCC: Financial awareness; Presentations to be made at the Village School on 9th November following recent poster campaign.

Footpaths: Priest Lane still to be cleared following agreement with Mr. Game.

Leisure Facilities: ROSPA inspection carried out on 7th September. Clerk to write to ROSPA for clarification of various comments included in their report. Painting of the Play Area has now been completed.

Golden Jubilee: Clerk to progress purchase of Tree Seat to commemorate the Golden Jubilee.

Pewsey Vale Quiet Lanes Project: This meeting was attended by Mr. C. Butcher on 21st October 2002 at Bouverie Hall Pewsey. It is intended to create a quieter area in the Pewsey Vale for all people. This would hopefully benefit walkers with the improvements to footpaths, horse riders with improvements to byways and cyclists with the reduction in speed of traffic on designated roads. It would not be possible on all routes, as it was recognised that there is a need for through routes, i.e. north to south and east to west. There is a keen desire to make a notable physical appearance when entering and leaving the area. It is anticipated that this will be a three year undertaking, with 100,000 being allocated per annum from WCC. The meeting was well attended with all those present participating in the project development.

Liaison Meeting: Unfortunately no one available to attend.
