Following a visit made to the churchyard by the Rector, Jem Jones, Ray Evans, Graham Hindley and WWMCRC last month, we have great pleasure in announcing the JPC initiative as described in the minutes for meeting 15th last.
To discuss, and if appropriate approve, expenditure of £1,500 to purchase machinery for the ongoing maintenance of the Churchyard by WWMCRC.
The Chair advised that he and Cllr Jem Jones, the Rector and Graham Hindley had met with a representative from the Community Pay Back Team. It was RESOLVED that the JPC purchase three machines at a cost of £1,500. The JPC also agreed to look into the insurance situation, who would store the machinery and also liaise with Cubbington PC, who had experience of the Community Pay Back Team. It was agreed that this item would be included on the next agenda for the Finance Sub-Committee. These motions were proposed by Cllr Evans, seconded by Cllr Jones and carried unanimously.
The WWMCRC Pay Back Team will use the machinery for the ongoing maintenance of the churchyard and surrounding shrubbery etc, so that this wonderful and ancient plot can be viewed by all in perfect order in future. The team, when satisfied their work is complete in the graveyard, will also be carrying out other maintenance duties on the High Street and surrounds.
Details of the expenditure along with storage and operating decisions to be published following FS-C meeting.
