District Councillor Mrs Gallagher gave reminder of the public meeting with Jeremy Wright MP. Philip Secombe PCC, and senior police at Rowington Village Hall on February 8th to talk about and discuss what is going to be done about the crime in Arden Ward. Extra parking has been arranged at Rowington Club and it is hoped that many local residents will attend.

The Parish Council now owns the Phone Box at Lapworth Station and is looking for suggestions as to how to put it to good use.  One suggestion has been to have etched advertising for local businesses in the window panes. If you are interested please contact the clerk on can show you an example of how it looks and give a cost estimate.

Work is still ongoing to secure funds to replace the play equipment at Lapworth Village Hall and it hoped that sufficient monies will soon be in place.
