The Chairman welcomes all members to this third virtual meeting of Stone Parish Council.

269 County & District Reports:
Council noted the written report from County Cllr Hart. District Councillor Lisa Jones confirmed she had agreed a grant of £200.00 towards the Village Gateway Project. The new parish posters were seen by a few people to be a bit vulgar to start with but locals can now see the funnier side to them and have accepted them albeit they haven’t stopped fly tipping along Stanklyn Lane.
It was noted the Bank Balance currently stands at £15, 907.57 which includes earmarked reserves and grants for specific works.
- Accounts amounting to £443.74 as detailed on the expenditure spreadsheet circulated to all councillors prior to the meeting were approved for payment.
