The Parish Council meeting in September was held after the deadline for The Messenger so there is no report on that meeting.
At the meeting held on 24 August, it was decided that the best way to plan for the future of the village was to review and update the Parish Plan that was published in 2011. Please see the notification of the review elsewhere in this edition of the Messenger.
It was also agreed that stickers indicating the 30mph speed limit in the village would be delivered to homes that front on to Mill St, High St, Thornham Rd and the village end of Finningham Rd. The stickers can be put on to wheelie bins so that when they are put out for collection drivers will be reminded of the speed limit. Two stickers will be delivered to the relevant houses so that they can be stuck on to both types of bins.
Finally, horse riders and cyclists are reminded not to use footpaths but to use the bridle paths. The charity meadow is also
not to be used for horse riding.
The next Parish Council help desk will be in the Village Hall on Saturday 3 October from 10am to 12 noon. The next Parish Council Meeting will be on Monday 19 October at 7:30pm.
Full reports from County and District Councillors and our PCSO as well as other matters such as maintenance of the play equipment, state of footpaths etc can be found in the draft Minutes available on the council website at http:// gislingham.onesuffolk.net/ and on the notice board at the shop.
