The Parish Council has a vacancy for new Councillors to join us.
Our official size is ten Councillors, and we currently have only seven.
The Council meets six times a year on a Monday evening,
the commitment is not onerous.

The possibility has arisen for the Parish Council to be given the site of
the old St Peter's Church which is the fenced off area of the field next to the bus stop
on The Causeway. The Parish Council have long wanted to be able to provide a children's play area in the village and the offer we have received would permit that, although there would be capital costs to prepare and equip the site, and of course running costs of maintenance and insurance to consider.
We think our best way forward is to develop a Community Group to plan and fundraise for the equipment necessary to create a play area here and eventually to run it.
If you would like to be involved contact Jon Radgick on 578222 to discuss.

CHEAP(ER) HEATING OIL!!
Many local residents are now benefitting from the OilCAN community oil buying scheme – if you’ve been hesitating, now would be a good time to jump in & join us, as September is likely to see the lowest price oil this year (subject to international turmoil of course). Although there’s a small membership cost (£20 for individuals) it is highly likely that your savings on your first order will more than cover this – I saved £50 on my first order, and a Glanton resident was shocked to learn last winter that in the same week as one of the OilCAN deliveries, he had paid the same oil supplier £70 more for his delivery. Plus the environmental benefits of fewer tanker deliveries, all you have to be is a little bit organised, and the scheme makes that as easy as possible for you. For more information ring me on 01665 578222, or OilCAN on 01670 500812, or see www.ca-
