• Dog fouling; the culprits still seems to be small dogs. The provision of dog poo bags has proven to be very popular – to the tune of 400 bags in a very short space of time.
The parish voted to buy a ‘secret’ camera to record dog fouling, which could be moved around the village. Quotes to be collected.
• Village Maintenance Man – jobs remaining will be carried out before Ken Sloan regrettably leaves the job at the end of September. We are currently advertising for a new employee
• Mosaic (Grimsby Road Pump) – The WI suggested a mosaic at the side of the pump to commemorate their anniversary, however this was not possible. The Parish Council will look at plans to add the word ‘Binbrook’ as a mosaic, and will look for a local person to complete.
• Allotments – The matter was raised again and we agreed to place an advert in the flyer to see if we had a local interest in allotments and also if there was land available to use.
