The Parish Council had no objections to Cllr Miss Cross remaining on the Parish Council, her knowledge and involvement is an asset to the Parish Council.
CLLR MR M VENABLES - Reported that he has been approached by a Magician who would help with a fund raising event. The Magician would put on a show for Adults in the village hall and share the profits with the village.
This was briefly discussed and it was suggested that a Cabaret with Supper evening could be held, possibly selling tickets to neighbouring villages to increase sales. It was thought that late February/March would be a good time to have an event of this nature. The Parish Council were keen to explore this further, Cllr Mr Venables will contact the Magician for further details.
The Parish Council discussed the recent Harvest Supper and felt that attendance this year was a bit disappointing. Cllr Mr Venables suggested that the village are asked what sort of social event they would like as he felt it was important that the feeling of community is maintained in the village. The Parish Council agreed.
CLLR MRS J FERGUSON - Reported that PC Bill Williams has given her some stickers for oil tanks to inform that the oil within has been coloured and is traceable. These stickers will be distributed around the village.
Cllr Mrs Ferguson reported that Street Light Number 3 is flickering. The Clerk will report this to Street Lighting at Hampshire County Council.
Cllr Mrs Ferguson reported that unfortunately the event clashed with holidays and only two youngsters from the village took up the offer. The Parish Council thought that it was very good of Mr Kirby to offer these days to the young of the parish, past events have been a great success and held to strengthen the community links to the Shooting Ground.
