THE PARISH COUNCIL JOURNEY AROUND THE VILLAGE
to view prospective work areas


First call this year was at the War Memorial. The grass to be cut by contractor, palings replaced and railings to be installed before Remembrance Day

St. Osyth Parish Council held their Parish Appraisal on the evening of Tuesday 9th June 2015. This tour of St Osyth, Chisbon Heath and Point Clear is part of the Parish Council’s programme to inform themselves in making decisions about the priorities for the coming year. They need then to provide the necessary finance and for some items apply to the various ‘Grant Giving’ bodies who, provided a satisfactory case is made out by the Parish, may then offer to fund or part fund a project of benefit to the parish as a whole.
Sonia Grantham our Chairman leads the preparation of a Parish Business Plan, of which this days tour inputs information for the preparation of the Plan, which in practice schedules planned work for up to three years ahead. In this way the Council can honestly say that we know where we are going!

An inspection of the Skate Park shows some scribble to be removed. A sign put up by Neil our Clerk at the request of the ‘Park’ users, requested parents and those in charge of young children to stop children running across the Park when it is in use.

New better safety surfacing required under swings, as it is peeling upwards causing a possible trip hazard. The metal benches are to be painted as early as possible – contractor to be made aware

This elderly gentleman should really know better, but he said it was his way of checking the bearings were in good working order – he is one of our District Councillors and takes the pictures, so who wants to argue?
This picture was taken by Neil Williams our Clerk who organised this evenings visits and in consultation with Sonia our Chairman, identified the places to be visited,

Dumont Children’s Playground is for young children up to around eight years of age. This playground has been in place for over seventeen years and whilst it is located at a quiet spot it is well used.

Protective safety surfacing is required under the activity tower & swings. In general the area is in a good state but the Climbing frame needs to be painted. Our contractor has been made aware that work is required.


‘Nature’ is to be allowed to ‘take over’ lower area near boundary sleepers, some of the fencing needs to be repaired.

This ‘Priory Meadow’ youth recreation and sports ground is on the site of a previous ‘Special Needs School’. The site was transferred to the Parish in February 2002 by the County Council to add to the facilities for young people in the area.

These are our allotments, first opened on 6th April 2010 and now into their fifth year. The notice board needs to be removed or repaired, several sheds require painting and the lower field (triangle) needs to be cut.


I could not resist this picture of the Holm Oak in the Parish Cemetery. It does cost money to keep it in a healthy state and we employ a professional ‘tree surgeon’ to do any work necessary to maintain a tree, many hundreds of years old!

The Parish Cemetery was looking fine when visited, though the Clerk noted that Weed killer was required on all paths and that the Hedges around the ‘Memorial Wall’ need to be trimmed.

Though not part of the evenings business our driver was asked to drive down Frowick Lane, where to the north could be seen part of a large solar panel electricity generating field in our Parish.


The above Solar Panels only work in daylight, but do make a significant contribution to so called renewable energy.
