Crops Obstructing Footpaths
Notts County Council are asking local residents to inform them at 0115 977 4802 if they are aware of any public footpaths on arable land in the parish that are being obstructed by crops.
Senior Rights of Way Officer for the joint partnership, Jane Baines, is anxious to ensure that obstructions do not take place and says they will write to any farmers who do not heed requests to rectify the position where blockage are allowed to occur.
The County say that where obstructions do occur they will ask the farmers to remove them or the County Council will carry out the work and charge the farmer for it.
WI hall on Schoool Lane
East Stoke with Thorpe Parish Council are investigating the future ownership and use of the WI hall on School Lane at East Stoke following a decision by the Institute to disband.
The Hall was built in 1937 and has been the only public building in the two villages since then apart from the parish church. As well as it being used for WI meetings and their activities, it is used by the parish council for their meetings and occasionally for village events such as parties, etc.
The land on which the hall stands is owned by a charity.
The parish council are interested in being involved in the future of the hall and are making enquiries as to the possibility of this.
Clerk Mike Elliott who can be contacted on 0115 9376506 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org would be happy to receive any comments from residents on the subject.
