Autumn Update 2015

Village Community Event

We are looking to hear from people interested in helping to organise a village event to be held on the playing field in August 2016.  The Parish Council are looking for a number of people to form a committee in order to generate ideas for a community event.  This may be a fete, Village Olympics, barbeque, etc.  Any expressions of interest in the first instance can be made to any Councillor or the Clerk (see contact details below).

Parish Council – Uncontested Election

With seven nominated candidates standing for the Parish Council elections in May of this year, each of the candidates were elected unopposed and no election took place on the 7th May, aside from the Parliamentary and Borough Council elections.  The previous Parish Councillors retired four days after the day of election, that is on 11th May and the new Council came into office on that day.

The previous Vice-Chairman Mr Geoffrey Kemp stood down and was replaced by Councillor Len Fletcher.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Geoffrey Kemp for his valued contribution and wish the newly elected Councillor, Len Fletcher well in his role.

All Parish Councillors contact details and those of the Clerk came be found on the North Creake Parish Council website.

Annual Parish Council Meeting

The evening of Thursday 14th May saw the start of the next four year Parish Council term, which included the election of the Chair and Vice Chair.  The meeting saw the previous Chairman, Adam Bunkle re-elected and election of a new Vice-Chairman, Matthew Sands, for the following twelve months.

Agricultural Traffic

The Parish Council over recent weeks have become concerned and have discussed the large number of tractors and high-sided trailers using the roadways through the village for the transport of maize to the anaerobic digester at Egmere.  The Parish Council have been made aware that a number of these vehicles appeared to have exceeded the advisory 15mph speed limit.

Towards the end of last year the Parish Council had a conversation with the Police regarding the speeding issues through the village and as a consequence they did carry out speeding checks over a number of days, needless to say, no vehicle was captured exceeding the 30mph speed limit.

Our concerns regarding the agricultural vehicles were reported through Farm Watch and the Traffic division were made aware of the issues being experienced.  In the event that issues were to reoccur we were urged to notify the Police and they would investigate.

We would therefore like to advise anyone who has witnessed any large vehicles driving at speed through the village to contact the police promptly via 101 or email PCSO Chris Stevens with any concerns .

And Finally……….

Please come along to our meetings held in North Creake Village Hall on the second Thursday of every month at 7.00pm, to inform us of any issues you would like tackled or to find out what is being discussed at present.
