Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council meeting November 2020

 The council Zoom meeting was at 7pm on 5 November; there were no members of the public present.

Council were informed about further antisocial behaviour on Saturday 31 October when a litter bin was toppled over, and a bench moved 20 feet, including the chained concrete anchor, on the car park at the Barnards Way end of Warwick Park. The litter bin was righted again on the Sunday. The bench has been left for now while more sturdy fixings are obtained.

Possible traffic lights or road works needed

A blocked gully and storm drain along Marsh Drive are finally being cleared. Similarly County Highways are proposing to clear the gully under the railway bridge on the A6 towards the end of November. Unfortunately traffic lights or a road closure may be needed.

The parish council resolved to part fund the costs of a joint parish council van with Kibworth Beauchamp. This will be invaluable when disposing of green waste, transporting equipment, new benches and litter bins to the various sites. There has been a good response to the groundsperson vacancy advert. We hope to hold interviews in December.

The council resolved to purchase the annual Christmas tree for outside the Old House again. It will not be possible with Covid-19 restrictions to have refreshments or the full Kibworth Band or Ladies Choir. However it is hoped we will be able to have a limited tree lighting event on 12 December at 6.30pm.

The council approved the quotation for lighting inside the Lychgate at the cemetery.
