3. MINUTES OF LAST MEETING The minutes of the meeting held on 4th July 2006 were agreed as a true record and signed by the Chairman.

4. STREET LIGHTING New Street Lighting will be needed in the village as electricity supply cables are under grounded and the old poles removed.

Lorraine Calcott, the lighting engineer who has designed the new lighting scheme for the village, gave a brief presentation and answered questions from councillors and members of the public. Concern was expressed about the number of extra lights that would be installed under this scheme. It was resolved to write to Milton Keynes Council asking to know: -


5.1. Residents from Hillview reported that young people using the Perry Lane Recreation Field were causing a nuisance, often until late in the evening. Examples given were of footballs being kicked into gardens and against the car park fence and loud music coming from the area around the Pavilion. The cladding which has been built onto the field side of the Storage Hut is regularly used but footballs kicked over the hut often land in the Hillview gardens. Residents were asked to report any further incidents to Councillors and it was agreed that this would be discussed at the September meeting. In the meantime Councillors will be liaising with the caretaker to monitor the situation.

5.2 Parts of Corn Close are overgrown and need clearing.


6.1 There is a dead tree in the Village Hall Play Area that should be removed.

6.2 A draft agreement between Sherington Parish Council and Sherington Football Club is being circulated to Councillors for their comments.

6.3 An enquiry has been received asking about the possible use of the Perry Lane Football Field on certain Sunday mornings by a veterans’ team. Councillors have asked for dates of games. The Council is already waiting for a response from MK Saints concerning their request to use the pitch again this year. It is accepted that the pitch should ideally not be used more that twice a week.

6.4 The MKNECAF (North East Consultative Area Forum) will hold its next meeting in Sherington Village Hall on Tuesday 26th September.

6.5 Emails have been sent to Anglian Water concerning recent spills of waste water from manholes in Water Lane; this will be discussed at the September meeting.

7. DATE OF NEXT MEETING The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 5th September in the Village Hall at 7.30pm. There being no further business the meeting closed at 9.05pm.
