CLLR Bowcock and Cllr Tindall were elected chairman and vice- chairman, respectively, for the coming year. Cllr Bowcock's first duty was to welcome three new councillors, Cllr Jo Fitzpatrick, Cllr Geoff Haigh and Cllr Julie Parr and also to congratulate everyone on being elected.
Minutes of the last meeting and accounts to be paid were agreed and signed. Membership of committees and working groups was decided.
Apologies for absence had been received from district councillor Ian Allen.
The clerk has received notification from the county council that a tree at the end of Linden Way/Froize End had been taken down following advice from an arboriculturalist. Due to the spreading of roots under the path, which were heading towards a neighbouring house and BT phone box it was felt that this was the best course of action.
Police surgeries will be held on Saturday, May 19, from 4pm - 4.30pm outside Haddenham Post Office and on Saturday, May 26, from noon till 12.30pm at Aldreth Village Hall.
