Highlighted points included:


Darton East –Cllr Spence reported that 7 sponsors had been identified to sponsor 7 seasonal planters across the Darton East Ward.


Darton West – There has been a further fatal accident on Birthwaite Hill.  A discussion took place regarding risk reduction but Highways have a limited budget to fund additional safety measures and cannot discuss the most recent accident until after the Coroner has reported.  It seems that many accidents are due to driver error and would not be alleviated by additional signage etc. 


Old Town – Nothing further to add.


St Helen's – a Health Event is planned for 28th Sept at New Lodge WMC.  The Ward Alliance has 2 new members, one of whom has agreed to be Secretary.  Spring bulbs will be organised through Lubbe & sons.  It was reported that the Ward Alliance funded a ‘Feeding Britain’ pilot during the school holidays at a cost of £360 and was very successful.


RESOLVED that the notes of the respective Ward Alliances be noted.
