Annual Parish Meeting Friday 26 April
27 April 2013
West Parley Parish Council held the Annual Parish Meeting at the Memorial Hall on Friday 26 April. Some 70 people were present.
Before the meeting there was an opportunity to inspect a display of West Parley's Heritage and detailed information on the newly flourishing Parley Sports Club and its programme of events. The West Parley Women's Institute served tea and coffee.
The meeting opened with newly appointed East Dorset Police Inspector Wayne Nock introducing himself to the residents and giving a short talk on police policy and practice in the area.
Individual Councillors briefed the meeting on progress in their Lead Areas of responsibility - Pat Couper on the appearance of W.P. and the playground area, Simon Jordan on the Parley Sports Club, Sheila Gooden on Community Services, Kenny Pearce on Public Engagement, Geoff Dark on Local Planning Applications, and Parish Clerk Linda Leeding gave a short financial overview.
The Parish Council presented a cheque to the Women's Institute. There followed a lively public discussion in which some of the subjects raised were the need for public crossings on New Road, the public's disappointment at the lack of progress on the former Dormy Hotel site, the need for allotments in West Parley, and general satisfaction at the progress in updating and improving the appearance and the facilities in the village.
