January 2019 BERE REGIS PARISH COUNCIL Chairman:      Ian Ventham 471480 ianrventham@gmail.com Vice Chairman: Robin Pitcher 472151 robinpitcher@btinternet.co.uk  Parish Clerk: Amanda Crocker 472327 bereregispc@gmail.com Websites: www.bereregisparishcouncil.co.uk www.bereregis.org   The Parish Council met on Thursday 10th January 2019 at the Drax Hall. The next meeting will be on Thursday 14 th  February at the Drax Hall, starting at 7pm. All parishioners are very welcome to attend and to take the opportunity to raise any matters or concerns at the start of the meeting. Potential Community Event The Council discussed the possibility of holding a large-scale event in the village this summer, perhaps similar to previous events held such as the Queen’s Birthday Street Party or the Jubilee Party. This would require input from all the  groups within the community, but it could be a fun event if enough people want to help. Suggestions so far received have been for a traditional fete, including a flower and veg show, a fancy dress competion, a dog show and events like tug of war. If you would like to be involved with this, please contact the Chairman, Ian Ventham, on the details above. Snow Plough Use Dorset County Council are continuing with their scheme of reimbursing farmers £30 per hour for use of their snow plough to help clear local roads if adverse weather makes them impassable. If you know anyone with access to a snow plough then they can contact the clerk, Amanda Crocker, for further information. Open Spaces For the Wildlife and Environment Group’s January conservation working party a small but energetic band of volunteers cleared an area between the stream and walkway  of brambles and other undergrowth and coppiced some trees. This work is being carried out on a rotational basis to allow more light to reach the woodland floor and for wildflowers to flourish whilst maintaining a mosaic of habitats for a range of birds, mammals and invertebrates to enjoy. Further conservation work parties are planned for the first Saturdays of February, March and April to carry out more scrub clearance and tree planting works. Calendars Calendar sales have been going well and they are still on sale at the Post Office for another couple of weeks. We are trying to make them available slightly earlier this year, but do require more photographs to be submitted for consideration. These can be sent in at any time by emailing them to bryan@cheapprintingdorset.co.uk and the selected ones will be chosen later in the year. Reporting Defects
If anybody notices any defects or problems within the playpark, please inform the clerk or a councillor at the nearest opportunity. A list of all councillors can be found here (https://www.bereregisparishcouncil.co.uk/about-us/councillors/). If there are problems elsewhere in the village, Dorset For You has a great tool on their website (https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/roads-highways-maintenance/roads-highways-and- maintenance.aspx?folderIds=5543,6301) for the reporting of any defects such as potholes, flooding, overgrown hedges, verges etc, broken lights and
much more. Whilst the Parish Council will always endeavour to assist in areas we can, most problems which occur around the village are the
responsibility of either the landowner, or in the case of roads, Dorset Highways, and reporting these issues online will always get the quickest
response.
