7 Any Other Business

Moving Parish meetings to web based for 2021 until Covid 19 is under control –

Delay a firm decision until the tier situation is known in 2021. Not against going virtual, but feel that this could exclude the parish attending if not able or have connection to the internet, but the same can be said for meeting in person as this excludes the parish from attending due the maximum of 6 people in tier 2.

New laptop for clerk due to slowness and storage issues – Yes, spend approved.

8 Date of next Meeting

Wednesday 10th February 2021 at 7pm


Anne Lealman- Clerk to the Parish Council
