NOTES FROM PARISH COUNCIL MEETING ON 18th MAY
- Following application received during the preceding month, the Parish Council warmly welcomed Rev Allan Jones and Jenni jones, Joanne Wills, Lynda Batchelor, and Peter Stitchbury (Associate) to membership of the community
- Date for the 2018 AGM set for 14th October
- Plans were confirmed for a monthly early evening, 5.30pm, service for the first Sunday in each month commencing in July. Its style will be a mix of contemplative, informal and participatory. All are welcome.
- Plans have now been finalized for the lecture and discussion series with visiting Westar Scholar Dr Joe Bessler commencing on July 31st and marketing these events will begin shortly.
- Council approved an amendment to the 2017 AGM minute to record faithfully the question raised at the meeting by Kerry and Jill Stotter; and further approved, following agreement with Kerry and Jill, a report to the community of the Council’s response to the question. The revised AGM minutes and report to members to be circulated next week.
- An accident in March highlighted a number of areas for improvement in our management of Health and Safety incidents. As a result, a revised and more accessible means of reporting and following up on hazards and incidents has been introduced. This starts with a new reporting and investigation form, which allows for the reporting of possible hazards and near misses (as well as accidents and incidents), and for the tracking of follow up action after a H&S report is received. Copies of the new forms are available in the lobby. If you have any questions or concerns about health and safety, or any ideas on how we can improve health and safety at St Luke’s, then please speak to Colin.
- Colin has moved office and is now working from the former youth worker’s office (the old vestry). Once renovated, this space will become a community office and meeting room. Colin’s old office is being let out to one of our counsellors.
- Following a review of governance issues commencing earlier in the year, Parish Council has considered, developed and now formally adopted, an Institute of Directors best practice process under which Parish Council will undertake an annual self-review. The review assesses the performance of council’s leadership and management obligations measured against a number of identified functions of the council. Copies of the adopted self-review system, for information, are available on the screen bench
- Copies of the April Parish Council meeting are available on the screen bench
