Welcome and Introductions. The Chair welcomed everyone to the meeting and invited those attending to introduce themselves. 2. Apologies. Apologies for non-attendance were received from Keith Brendish (Wingfield PC) and Myra Link (Keevil PC). 3. Minutes of the Annual General Meeting of the PCLG held on 29 January 2009. The Minutes of this meeting were agreed and signed by the Chair as a true and accurate record. 4. Chairman’s Report. The Chair report that the previous year had seen significant changes in the structure and organisation of local government by the creation of a single Unitary Authority – Wiltshire Council. This, in turn, had led to the creation of Community Area Boards that were now beginning to find their way in terms of providing a platform for local views and for taking these forward to Wiltshire Council. She commented that the Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPT) had been a great success and although there had been some changes in NPT personnel over the year it was generally felt that the local communities had been served very well by the NPTs. The Chair concluded her report by thanking all members of the PCLG for their support over the year. 5. Finance Report. Doug Ross, as the Responsible Finance Officer, stated that the finance carried forward into this Financial Year from FY2008/8 was around £500 – sufficient for around five further meetings of the PCLG. He stated that there is a need at a subsequent Ordinary PCLG meeting to decide how to obtain further funding for the work of the PCLG. He suggested that an Area Board Grant might be available, although doubts were expressed as to whether this would be possible, or to invite Parish Councils to make a donation, as previously. 6. Election of Officers. Gaynor Polglase was unanimously elected Chair for the forthcoming year (Proposer: Kath Noble). Allan Spreadbury was unanimously elected Vice Chairman for the forthcoming year (Proposer: Peter Westlake). 7. Close. The Chair closed the meeting at 7.10 pm. Gaynor Polglase (Chairman, TCAF PCLG) Giving a helping hand to the following Parish Councils. Bulkington, Heywood, Hilperton, Keevil, North Bradley, Semington, Southwick, Staverton, Steeple Ashton, West Ashton and Wingfield.
