  1. Minutes of the previous meeting
    • The minutes of the previous meeting from November were circulated with the papers and approved as a true record.
  2. Any matters requiring Community Council action reported from the Parish
    • The potholes to Roxburgh’s Road and Kirklands Loaning had still not received attention; these would be reported once again. There was a defective speed sign in Cummertrees which had been reported previously.  Since the meeting a report had been received that the battery to this sign was defective and this was due to be replaced as soon as Covid restrictions allowed.
    • A further report had been received regarding flooding at the Bellridding Bridge this would be reported.
      • Action – SG
  3. Bridge Sub-Group feedback
    • There was no report from the sub-group but Les would contact the Field Committee regarding any progress on obtaining quotes, etc.
  4. Police Report
    • No new incidents had been reported since the last meeting in November.
  5. Treasurer’s Report
    • There was no report under this agenda item
  6. Secretary’s Report
    • Since the last meeting an Area Committee Grant of £1,000 had been received and, with the assistance of other Community Councillors, a list of items required for completion of the website had been drawn up and sent to Creatomatic.  This has been acknowledged by them and will be progressed into their work plans.   An estimated cost of £600 had been given for the input and programming changes, leaving a balance of £400 for activating the website.   Over the Christmas period the application forms for the annual Discretionary Grant had been received, completed and submitted to the Council.  An acknowledgement had been received that the application had been approved and the funds would be released to our bank.  David will check this during the next two weeks.
      • Action – DS
  7. Councillors’ Report
    • The agenda had been circulated to our Councillors; there were no reports submitted but Cllr. Brodie again offered his help with any issues that may arise.
  8. Any other business
    • Les had put forward a suggestion that, prompted by the number of spectacular sunrises and sunsets recently, it might be an opportunity to publish a ‘2022 Calendar’ of the area and put this on sale to raise funds for parish Clubs that haven’t been able to meet and fundraise during the pandemic.   The response from fellow members was positive and it was further proposed that residents would be asked to submit photos to be included in the calendar.  Costs for printing, etc would be obtained, it was proposed that some of the Minsca funding could possibly be used for this purpose
      • Action – SG
