Village Community Store: Nothing to report.
PCC: Churchyard: Collapsed Tomb: Faculty complete.
Cemetery: It was questioned what we get for our rates. Cllr. Whitehead gave a brief explanation in the difference between business and domestic rates. Agreed that we would investigate both this, and cost of a bin at the Commercial Waste Rate
Village Green: Cllr’s Tilley, Daw & Gay removed existing equipment. Charles Butcher removed tunnel. New equipment successfully installed. They are due to come back to lay down some more safety matting.

Glebe Field: The sign regarding parking continues to work well, no further action required for now.
All Cannings Primary School: Nothing to report.
Village Hall: Cllr. Butcher put herself forward as liaison between ACPC and the village hall.
Direct areas of responsibility for each councillor: These were discussed and the website will be updated, and also the noticeboards.
Acknowledgement of emails: Gentle reminder made to acknowledge emails requiring a response.
Remembrance Sunday: Note made to diarise a memo about British Legion donation next year, and approach it proactively rather than reactively. It was confirmed that as this was a regular donation it was ok to make the decision outside of a meeting, however any new financial decisions can only be made in an official meeting.
Cllr. McDonald volunteered to be the ACPC representative at the Remembrance Day service, requested clarification of the order of events on the day. Kate to confirm details with Elizabeth Currie.
Two quotes received so far for the allotment work. Cllr. McDonald to confirm if a third is coming so ACPC can review at the next meeting.
