PARISH COUNCIL MEETING REPORT - MAY 2014

background board UR


Two meetings to report on this month, with the Annual Meeting of Council held on May 12th and the Annual Parish Meeting on May 19th.

David Taylor was re-elected as Chairman at the Annual Meeting of Council and Terry Brooker was also re-elected as Vice Chairman.  Most of this meeting was taken up with the selection of committee members and PC representatives to other bodies, so there isn’t too much to report.  The Internal Auditor has carried out the annual audit and has found no faults, and has praised the Clerk’s diligence.  The accounts will be formally agreed and accepted at the June PC meeting, then sent off to Littlejohns, the External Auditorappointed by the Audit Commission.  There will be changes in 2015, as the Audit Commission ceases to exist.
The Community Tax Support Grant is still a matter of contention, because Sevenoaks District Council has  refused to pass this money on to us.  A meeting of the full SDC Council confirmed ths decision on Tuesday, May 20th.

The Annual Parish Meeting, held on May 19th, was packed, standing room only, in fact !  After reports from the Council Chairman and Committee Chairmen, a presentation was made to Mrs. Val Dennett under the Kent Association of Local Councils Awards Scheme.  This was awarded for her continued support for and involvement in Halstead parish and she was thanked for her diligence, kindness and compassion over the years.  Cllr. Baldwin read the citation sent to KALC when applying for the award.  The award was signed by the Lord Lieutenant of Kent, Viscount De L’Isle, and the Chairman of KALC.
An enthusiastic report was given by Allan Spence,  Chairman of the Halstead & Knockholt WW1 Commemoration Committee.  The committee has arranged a variety of events in both villages, including an Exhibition of Memorabilia and Artefacts in the lecture theatre at Coolings Nursery on Rushmore Hill.  This will take place over the weekend of July 4th- 6th.
PCSO Jenny Boyden then took the floor and gave a report of her activities throughout the parish and the ward, and answered questions from the floor admirably.

The evening ended with a glass or two of wine and cheese and lots of chat.
