Parish Council July Meeting


I hereby give notice that the Meeting of the Parish Council of the Timberscombe parish will be held via a Zoom online meeting Monday 27th July 2020 at 7.30pm

All members of the Council are hereby summoned to attend the Meeting of the Parish Council for the purpose of considering and resolving upon the business at the meeting as set out hereafter.

Members of the public are invited to attend the online meeting but will need to contact the clerk via email for a login to enable access to the meeting. There will be a period of public participation and members of the press and public are invited to address the Council 15 minutes prior to the commencement of the meeting at approximately 7.30pm, providing the notice period has been complied with. Please see Public Participation Notice on the website. If there are no items from the public, the official meeting will commence at 7.30 pm. For a copy of the meeting agenda and previous meeting minutes, please visit the website.

The chair will mute all mics once the meeting begins and if someone wishes to speak, they must raise their hand for the chair to see.



Questions from the public. Previously emailed to the clerk for an official record to be kept. Any member of the public may make a virtual presentation to the meeting (no more than three minutes), by submitting a written summary to the Clerk no later than 24 hours prior to the meeting by email. Alternatively, the Clerk will read the statement out in full.

Timberscombe Playground will remain closed until further notice.

The John Arlott Playing Field (JAPF) committee know that the playground is enjoyed by many people however the safety of the community is the main concern in this strange and uncertain time. The JAPF committee hope that you respect and understand the decisions that they have to make.

The Playground will remain closed for the foreseeable future and maybe opened after any issues raised from the imminent yearly inspection are managed.

The JAPF committee are reluctant to reopen the playground once the inspection has been completed due to the health and safety requirements regarding COVID-19. The government has advised many points with regards to the cleaning of equipment after use, and the limiting of users in the playground at any one time. The committee do not have the resources to manage this and so have decided to keep the playground closed.

However, if there is a demand from the community to have the playground opened then they would welcome a group of volunteers, who would be happy to ensure the playground is cleaned daily and monitored to ensure the rules are being adhered to.

If you would be interested in helping to reopen the playground, please get in touch with either the clerk of the TPC:  or the chair of the JAPF committee, Sue Searle:
