The Council met in April to conduct business as normal. One member of the public attended. Unhappily he gave details of a bicycle theft from his shed. Similar thefts have been reported, and residents should be alert and take extra security precautions. The gentleman stressed that the Police officers had been extremely helpful. No other police matters were brought to the meeting. .A slight problem had been encountered when a vehicle slid on the snow and ice, damaging the seat in the Pot Market as a result. The seat will be repaired by the person concerned, and thankfully, no-one was hurt.

People continue to dump rubbish at the Cemetery, despite the best efforts of the Council, and further precautions are being carried out.
Dog owners are asked to be more considerate. When dogs foul, it is good to collect the offending “poo” and bag it. It is not considerate to throw the bag over the wall into a garden or field. If there is no suitable bin available, please use your own bin, or the next public bin you come across on your walk. Similarly, tying bags on to trees is highly offensive and potentially likely to spread disease.
On a much more pleasant note, the Council has chosen their Community award winners for 2013. This year there will be a sporting theme. If you would like to attend, and to find out whether your personal favourite has been successful, please come along to the presentation evening at The George Hotel Tideswell, 7.00 p.m. Chilli con Carne will be served prior to the presentation at a cost of £5 per head.Contact Sue Barber on 871644, for tickets. 
The Council normally meets at the Library, behind the church, at 7.15 p.m. on the second Monday of each month. Residents and visitors are very welcome to attend. There is a 10 minute slot at the beginning of the meeting to enable people to ask questions or make comments.
In May, the Annual Parish Meeting will take place at the Fountain Square Church, 6.30 p.m. on the 13th May. All residents welcome
