  2. Peldon Noticeboard – the new locking noticeboard has now been fitted and the keys are kept safely at the village hall for access by acceptable users.
  3. Peldon and Wigboroughs Magazine – the increase of £30 a year for our donation to the magazine was proposed by Phil, seconded by Clare and agreed by all.
  4. Devolution – the ECC proposals were discussed at length and it was decided that more details on how it will all be implemented are required before we can come to any sort of decision on the matter.
    • The coned area with broken grate/ manhole cover along Maldon Road in Great Wigborough has been reported and followed up numerous times and we are told a new cover had to be ordered hence the wait.
  1. County Broadband Fibre was discussed at length and signing up/registering by 5th March 2019 is required from a good percentage of households in our villages for the scheme to take place here and so ways of reaching residents and explaining all about this will take place soon. No money or bank details are taken from anyone until your connection has been completed. The parish council is very supportive of this scheme as it is considered to be the only way of achieving this fibre broadband which will take us forward in this forever changing technological world.
  2. Footpaths Diversion Proposals – have been considered by those that would be affected and deemed to be acceptable.
  3. Silent Soldiers will be stored securely until decisions are made for their future.
  4. New Dog Bin for Copt Hall has been ordered thanks to Borough Councillor Locality Budget funding and will be fitted in good time, use of it will be hugely encouraged as dog walkers are often offenders of putting dog poo bags in hedges etc.
  5. Actions and Reminder List – updated and to note Gt Wig’s post box in School Lane is now in use and residents are encouraged to use it as much as possible to retain its existence and a paving slab has been kindly fitted by a resident to ensure easy posting
