072/17 Chairman’s report for council year 2016/17, delivered by Councillor J Hully.

Dear Councillors, members of the public and the press. It has been an honour and a privilege to once again to represent this great town of ours. We have seen many changes in the past few years, both good and not so good. Funding cuts to the County and District Councils have continued to be made which means smaller parishes must work extra hard, as this council has, to provide the best we can for our community. This involves the Council, groups and individuals working together in a cohesive manner. Some individuals go about their business quietly without ego and not looking for recognition. One such person, of which there are many, was our own Tommy Taylor, who many of us knew professionally and privately. He was a great advocate for the town, charitable and unassuming. The stories that have been told since his passing, by individuals is astonishing. Mary, his widow, is just the same. His family, this Council and the community should be proud of this great man.

Another good advocate is our own Gary McKee who has recently obtained the Freedom of the Borough following his marvellous feat of running 100 marathons in 100 days.

This Council will continue to do its upmost to provide for and protect all aspects (as far as possible) of our community. From the young to the not so young. None of this can be done in isolation and will involve many community groups and individuals.

073/17 Concerns from the community.

Martin Brough contacted the council to raise the problem of people leaving dog bags in the hedges and the sports field. He requested a bin to be installed to address this problem. Clerk to obtain costs for the next council meeting.

Councillor Riley has been approached by the parents of Gavin Curwen to inquire about the possibility of installing a memorial bench in the town, possibly on land at Low Wath. Clerk to obtain costs for the next council meeting.

The meeting was closed at 6.45pm.
