    Thanks are due to the volunteers, namely: Tim and Rebecca Burnill, Kay and Tony Clark, Wendy and Dave Curd, Heather and Elwyn Davies, Jennifer Easson, Robin George, Andrew and Sue Maxwell, Babs and Tony Mitcheson, Nan Murdoch, Jenny Nicolson, Jeff Pollard, Evan, Georgia and Rhian Powell, John Rice, Chris Smith, Lavinia Sole, James Uren, and Sally and Gareth. Thanks are also due to the staff at Balfour Beatty, who provided the safety and litter picking equipment and removed the rubbish promptly on the following Monday. The next litter picks will be held on Saturdays 24th March and 3rd November 2018.

    Following the litter pick it has been reported that wine and spirit bottles are frequently found dumped in the Maund Bryan area. Could anyone with information about this please contact the Parish Clerk.

    Accident Log
    Following a serious accident opposite Saffrons Cross Garage on 28th August, as part of its efforts to im-prove 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.

    Neighbourhood Plan
    The Parish Council have now submitted the draft Neighbourhood Plan and its supporting documents to Herefordshire Council for its 'Regulation 16' Consultation. (See the Neighbourhood Plan update elsewhere in this Newsletter).

    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 quotations.

    The Village Green
    Following requests to install adult exercise equipment on the Village Green, the Parish Council approached Herefordshire Council, whose response was that the Parish Council could install such equipment only if it took ownership or a long lease of the Green. Both options would require the Parish Council to be responsible for maintaining the Green. Consequently, the Parish Council is obtaining quotations for the cost of the annual maintenance of the Green before making a decision.

    The Telephone Box Library and the Bus Shelter opposite Englandís Gate
    Bell Homes has constructed a new brick bus shelter to replace the old wooden one, and has also repaired the telephone box library. All this has been done at no cost to the Parish Council, which wishes to thank Bell Homes for their generosity.

    Parish Meetings
    The next Meetings of the Parish Council will take place at 7.30pm on Mondays 4th December and 8th January at the Siward James Centre. Everyone is most welcome to attend and raise any matters of concern during the slot reserved for this purpose. If you prefer, you can raise matters in advance by contacting Chris Smith, Parish Clerk, on 01568-797132 or by email at bodenhampcclerk@gmail.com.
