Member of Public wished to discuss the VE Day Celebrations Friday 8th May 2020 as a village activity. 7pm -10.30pm. Visitors bring their own drink and volunteers make food of the VE Day Celebrations era. The event will include decorations, games, perhaps a fancy-dress parade for children. Donations of images/ memorabilia etc from that era will be asked for from residents at Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council Mon 27th April.

The Parish Council agreed to help fund the event with a donation of £100.

The Wakefield’s have the following idea for the Pub.

Put in a bedsit on the left side of the bar.

Right hand side small bar with “light eats” menu.

Patang area will be used for new house build, access from Farm Drive. There may be loading / unloading issues.

They wish to live within the community and believe that the 300-year-old pub cannot be sustained as a pub and no buyers are coming forward.

  1. Any Other Business.

Historic England have rejected the addition of the water trough near Village Green as it doesn’t meet their criteria.  Concrete drive was widened and this affected the spring. There is a pump and it’s on David Moseley land. PC will look to having it protected as part of the Village Green.


Village Green registration Clerk to chase up and once complete PC will formally thank the Joy estate for their help and support during this transfer.


Annual speaker will be confirmed by Cllr Marsh. Additional suggestions from PC, The Dogs Trust, Carnegie Museum for VE Day theme with speaker, Melton Detectorist Society and NFU.
