It was proposed by Ray Jackson, seconded by the Vice-Chairman, that the above payments be ratified.  All agreed.

15.  Any Other Business

Ray Jackson raised the question of the Parish Council paying for Neighbourhood Watch notices for the new scheme in Essex Road.  It was decided to hold this over to another meeting as there was also another scheme in the Village who might need similar help.He also pointed out the reference to Ward Level Crime maps in the latest edition of the KALC Parish News.

Maggie Coleman asked that the flooding in Pilgrims Road be taken up again with Medway Council. She also asked if the Parish Council would approve using legal advice in the registration of the Recreation Grounds.  This was deferred to another meeting.

The Clerk has received a letter from the Historical Society asking for its views on a suitable memorial for the late Ted Gowers.  This was also deferred.    

Parishioners’ Questions The following subjects were raised by residents:

1. Public Phone Box at Forge Green; 2. Plough Path; 3. Fence in Circle; 4. Thanks to Funday Committee; 5. Lowered footpaths at Water Works.
