East Cottingwith & Storwood Information Site

Latest Parish Council News

18/05/2018.  The Council had its annual meeting and the public meeting on 10th May. As a result, a lot of information is now in the appropriate places on this website. They include:
  • detailed financial information relating to 2017/18, which we have to display. There are 7 documents, the most important of which are the internal audit report, the statement of governance, and the statement of accounts. Also, anyone can see all the accounts if they want, by contacting me, Noel Joy, between 4th June and 13th July.
  • our policy on the Data Protection Regulations which come into force on 26th May. I hope the document is comprehensive, but appropriate to the size and nature of the Council's work.
  • slightly more readably, there are the Chairman's annual report, and the annual financial report, which includes additional information required under the transparency code.
  • and the draft minutes of the annual meeting and the annual public meeting
 
 
 
Remember that you can view all planning applications, and comment on any current ones, on ERYC's public access website, which you can access from this website by going to Parish Council Information/Planning Applications

We should let you know that 3 people have access to edit this website. There's me, Noel Joy;  and two of the Councillors - Neil Hobbs and Steve Ashton.  Steve has done most of the work in designing the site, expanding it and updating it. Without his time and his expertise things would have progressed much more slowly.

Remembrance fund raising

 

The coffee morning held on Saturday 14th April in the  village, raised a staggering  £466.97.
A big THANK YOU for your Fantastic support. 
The organizers were hoping to raise the amount reached on Saturday in 3 coffee mornings
so you can imagine how pleased and grateful they a
re.
Another coffee morning is being organised on a date yet to be arranged, probably the end of May beginning of June. 

Other related activities and events include people in the village knitting poppies for a remembrance rail at the  church,
where there will also be a flower festival
and in the Village Hall a collection of memorabilia and photos of old East Cottingwith.
We will be continuing to fund raise until November.
 . If we can raise even more money the charities (St Marys Church, The Royal British Legion and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission) will benefit.
