   7. Matters arising
               a) Meeting procedure Following received comments, it was agreed
                   that the Minutes should be a précis of proceedings not
                   verbatim.Both in Local Council Administration and The Good
                   Councillors Guide, there was a recommendation to have an Open
                   Meeting but Councillors were reminded that Council meetings are
                   to conduct Parish business. Members of public have the
                   opportunity to speak to Councillors and Clerk at other times or can
                   write to Council for a matter to be placed on Agenda.It was
                   suggested that a topic such as Local Charity, Education, Young
                   People could be discussed at AGM. Earlier newsletters could ask
                   for topics. This was agreed.
               b) Cricket Field. Financial arrangements to be referred back to
               c) Bollards High Street. NCC ( Nick Gore) has given permission for
                   these to be erected at PC expense. NCC on receipt of letter from
                   PC will authorise Atkins to carry out work. If they are damaged, it
                   is unlikely they will be replaced as they do not fit into criteria for
                   urgent replacement. Clerk to write to NCC.
               d) Speedwatch Councillor Powell (for next agenda)
               e) CYP Councillor Bennett reported on the success of this venture.
                   Sadly no one has volunteered to date to continue.Team work
                   needed if there is a programme for next year. Results of activities
                   to be placed on Receipts and Payments file. The Chairman
                   congratulated Councillors Bennett and Cook and thanked them for
                   their efforts.
               f) Youth Shelter – 66 forms completed. Survey recorded in R and P
                   file.Youth activities not sustainable unless more volunteers.
