BURHAM PARISH COUNCIL

NOVEMBER 2011 NEWSLETTER

Skate ramp MK II Phase 1: All being well work has now been completed.  The official opening has been booked for Sat 12 November 2011 at 11.00am. The Mayor will be in attendance (see flyer).

Rubicon, Europeís biggest and most active provider for skate board lessons will also be there for some extra fun, learner sessions and product ďgive-aways.Ē

Teaching/training sessions for skate boarders and BMX riders have been booked with Rubicon for Spring/Summer next year.  Obviously Iíll keep you updated nearer the time.

Speed Indictor Devices (SIDís): As you are aware, the Parish Council has been trying their best to have some SIDís installed in the village for several years. Finally, this is looking more positive.  We awaiting location plans and costs from KHS and it is hoped that the project could be funded from a pot of money via County Councillor Homewood for highway projects.  As always, we will keep you posted.

Public Car Parks:  As a reminder, if you are using any of the public car parks within the village (ie Village Hall, Bell Lane, and Church Street), your vehicle must have appropriate MOT, insurance and road tax. Recently, there have been some vehicles that have not been showing up to date road tax.  Obviously with parking at a premium within the village, this is unfair to other users.

Recycling (in particular paper and cardboard): Keep up the good work! So far, since April you, the residents have raised over £1000 by recycling your waste cardboard and paper. Well done. Any funding raised in this manner, is spent on additional community projects over and above those normally addressed by the Parish Council.

If you have any items that you would like the Parish Council to discuss, just give me a call on 01622 609324, e-mail me on pam@burhampc.co.uk or come along to the monthly meetings, normally held the last Monday of the month.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday 28 November 2011, 7.30 pm in the Old School Community Centre, Corner of Rochester Road/Bell Lane.
