Llanfair Community Council Minutes

llanfaircc2

The matters relating to St Hilary that were discussed at the last Community Council meeting (the last two meetings as the minutes were put on the web site in June) are below. There were no matters of note from the AGM.

11 May 2017
The adoption of the BT Telephone Box in St Hilary. Councillor Hawkins advised that there has been a further ‘St Hilary Village Forum Meeting’ and suggested that a representative is invited to present their proposals with regard to the BT Telephone Box prior to the next meeting.  Councillor Hawkins will contact a member of the forum to make an arrangement.

The use of the Council projector - decision pending.

6 April 2017
The installation of a defibrillator in St Hilary. Apparently it is the intention to ask the Community Council to donate funds towards the purchase. Members did point out that the other villages in Llanfair are also interesting in providing defibrillators so consideration must be given to each village.

A Village Notice Board. The Village Forum had asked the residents of Church Crescent for their views on a freestanding notice board being sited on the Village Green; the residents were not in favour of this proposal. The Village Forum is now considering the notice boards on the Village Hall. Councillor Shaw advised that they are in the ownership of the Community Council. The Village Forum has not approached the Community Council to advice of their intentions or proposals.

Two benches on St Hilary Down. Councillor Shaw advised that one of the benches has been repaired, although it is not known who has carried out the repair. The other bench basically needs a coat of paint.

2 March 2017
Members discussed their concerns regarding 'The Farm' with PC Elson. There have been incidents at the premises but it was stressed that all incidents had occurred within the confines of the premises and had not impacted on St Hilary village. Nevertheless, it was stated that villagers are concerned, particularly as so little is known locally on proceedings at the premises.

The two benches on St Hilary Down. Councillor Shaw advised that she has contacted Coed Hills and is awaiting for a response.

2 February 2017
Councillor Hawkins read out a 'Thank You' card that he had received from Ms H Drew, of the local NSPCC committee thanking the Community Council for its donation to the 'Christmas Carol Sing Event' which took place in St Hilary in December.

Councillor Hawkins reported that 5 black and white posts have been installed on the edge of the road between the A48 and St Hilary road, presumably to prevent motorists encroaching onto the verge.

Members discussed the 'state' of the two benches on St Hilary Down and what may be done to 'repair' or replace them. Councillor Shaw offered to make enquiries at Coed Hills to ask if they may be prepared to renovate the benches on behalf of the Community Council.

5 January 2017
Members discussed the two benches on St Hilary Down. The wooden/resin bench (in memory of Mr Jack Solomon) is on the part of the Common under the responsibility of the Vale of Glamorgan Council. The Clerk will take a look at both benches before the next meeting.

The adoption of the BT Telephone box in St Hilary. The Clerk advised that enquiries were made with Zurich Insurance and should anyone be injured through use of the box they would be fully covered under the public liability section of the insurance. The box itself would need to have a value placed on it for insurance purposes. It is probable that BT would be able to give the replacement cost of the telephone box.

E-mail communication from WEL Medical giving information with regard to an offer of 30% off an iPAD Defibrillator Package and External Cabinet. Members discussed the e-mail and how their villages are discussing obtaining defibrillators for their communities.

1 December 2016 

The Council discussed the state of the benches on the Downs and the possibility of the village adopting the phone box.

The adoption of the BT Telephone Box in St Hilary. Councillor Hawkins advised that there has been a further ‘St Hilary Village Forum Meeting’ and suggested that a representative is invited to present their proposals with regard to the BT Telephone Box prior to the next meeting.  Councillor Hawkins will contact a member of the forum to make an arrangement.
