There are indications of another leak in the water line to the allotments. The pipe runs from near the Horse & Jockey under the playing field to the allotment ground. Due to the number of repairs to the present pipe the cost of replacing the whole length will be investigated.

There was no police representative at the recent council meeting. A list of the last month’s eight recorded crimes was given.

There are a couple of allotment pitches available, please contact the clerk for details if you are interested in growing your own produce.

The September storms appeared to have caused minimal local damage, the few broken branches in Grange Park have been reported to the Vale Council.

Reports on progress of the improvements to 5 Mile Lane and a public meeting in Pendoylan on possible road improvements to junction 34 were given by the Vale Councillor.

The results of local road surveys were still awaited. Road surveys are not conducted during school or bank holidays to avoid inaccurate results.
