    Accident Log
    Following a serious accident opposite Saffrons Garage on 28th August, as part of its efforts to improve road safety on the A417 through Bodenham, the Parish Council is setting up an incident log in which to record all accidents, near misses and traffic violations on the A417. Please report anything to the Parish Clerk. Including details of any incident in the past few years.

    Defibrillator Training: a Date for your Diary
    Following the installation of a new defibrillator at the Parish Hall, a training session has been arranged for 2pm on Wednesday 22nd November at Bodenham Parish Hall. Although defibrillators are designed to be easy to use, being trained how to use them can speed things up, which could make the difference between life and death. If you attended the previous training session, you might appreciate a refresher course, particularly because the new machine is a different type from the others.

    Improving the Playground
    The Parish Councilís Playground Sub-committee - set up to consider how the money from the developers of Englandís Field earmarked for improvements to the playground is to be spent - has received a quotation from one playground supplier and is considering it, while waiting for other quotes. A poster illustrating the proposals has been put up in the bus shelter on the corner of Chapel Lane.

    The Telephone Box Library and the Bus Shelter opposite Englandís Gate
    When the construction of the houses in Englandís Field is complete, Bell Homes will construct a new brick bus shelter to replace the old wooden one, and will also repair and re-open the telephone box library. All this will be done at no cost to the Parish Council, which wishes to thank Bell Homes for their generosity.

    Annual Audit
    Grant Thornton LLP have completed the annual audit of the Parish Councilís accounts and have approved the accounts. Electors and their representatives have the right to inspect and make copies of the audit documents and the external auditorís report and certificate of completion. Contact the Parish Clerk, if you wish to inspect any of the documents.

    Parish Council Meetings
    The next Meetings of the Parish Council will take place at 7.30pm on Monday 6th November and 4th December at the Siward James Centre. Everyone is most welcome to attend and raise any matters of concern during the slot reserved for this purpose.
