COUNCIL REGRETS BOWLS CLUB'S CLOSURE

Posted: Fri, 14 Dec 2018 16:07 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council was very sorry to hear the news that Pilsley Bowls Club, at its annual general meeting, had taken the decision to close down.

The Club's Chairman, Jonathan Hayes telephoned the Parish Council Chairman and the Parish Clerk to give them the news and to explain the reason for the Club's decision, which is basically that with its declining membership it is not financially viable to continue. More »

The Club has been in existence since 1983 and was regarded as a village institution although in recent times it has found great difficulty in recruiting local people and at the present time the vast majority of its members are not Pilsley residents.

The Parish Council was currently in the process of assisting the Club to obtain funding for the provision of a number of shelters which would enable its members to watch games in inclement weather conditions and would also provide storage facilities. The Council was also hoping that the Club would make use of the new sports pavilion, which is due to open around February 2019.

The club chairman has, on behalf of the Club, thanked the Parish Council for its support over the past thirty five years. » Less

PROPOSALS FOR THE PARISH PRECEPT - 2019/20

Posted: Tue, 04 Dec 2018 16:30 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council at its meeting on 3rd December 2018 considered options for the 2019/20 parish precept and agreed (provisionally) to increase it by 3%, i.e. from £97,078 to £99,990.However as the support grant which we receive from North East Derbyshire District Council will be reduced from £5,501 to £2,751 (and will disappear altogether in the following year) the increase in our revenue will be the princely sum of £162.A 3% increase on the precept will increase the annual payment on a Band D property from £102.06 to £104.16, i.e. a yearly increase of £2.10. However, due to the way in which the District Council calculates its tax base (i.e. on the number of properties in each parish) the proposed increase is likely to be less than £2.10.A final decision on the Parish Council's precept will be made at its meeting on 7th January 2019 and we would welcome the public's views on our proposals ahead of the January meeting.You can let us have these by contacting any Parish Councillor or the Parish Clerk.
