REPORT OF THE PARISH COUNCIL CLUSTER MEETING : The clerk and Councillor Macey attended this meeting.

The worth of this was to pick up on local points which might be of interest Ė potential projects : Broadband/Wind Farms.
It was agreed to take the informal route with the cluster . The next Cluster meeting was arranged for 20th July venue to be decided upon.

Ambulance had been received asking for donations. It was agreed to give £20.00
