with Cllr Fishwick and Charlie Bluglass and Tony Secombe from Youth and
Cleaver, Community Pond Project officer, Pond Conservation, Natural England had
inspected the pond and surrounding area. Her report stated that the general
condition of the pond was good but clearance of vegetation on the south side was
necessary. Access from the car park needs to be improved and construction of a
new landing stage would be necessary. The School would like to be able to
include the children in Nature projects. Yealand Redmayne Parish Council would
like to use money from the Anniversary trust to extend a footpath round the
northern boundary linking it up with Drovers Way. Obviously this would require
contractors and permission from the surrounding landowners. Cllr Fishwick

CARP and other sources funding Community Projects. It was agreed that a sub
Committee be formed with members from both Parish Councils in order to move this

Re Election of Councillors May 2007
Cllr Hoskinson had sent a letter of
resignation. She is moving away from the Parish. Cllr Rothwell thanked her for
her contribution to the work of the Parish Council. The parish council
newsletter will advertise the vacancy.
The date of the next meeting was set
for 16th May 2007.
Cllr Jackson had been unable to find
any information about the deed of sale. The Clerk had contacted the Imperial War
Museum who had the memorial on their database but no extra information. The
LAPTC had been unable to provide any Guidance. It was agreed that the Parishes
would share the cost of insurance if this should prove necessary. Insurance
Costs were dependant on a valuation for replacement.
Yealand Conyers Parish council will
apply to enter this competition but without holding fund raising events. The
village is generally much improved now that building work has been completed.
Cllr Rothwell will ask the New Inn if they would be happy for the Clerk to
contact the Brewery re any plans for the derelict barn. This is now an eyesore.
