Councillor Frost spoke about the Wombwell Ward Alliance, noting that discussion had taken place around the success of the healthy holidays programme.   The Ward Alliance had previously financed hanging baskets, but had more recently sought sponsorship, with all now being funded by sponsors.  The Ward Alliance had also discussed Post Office provision in the area. A temporary facility was in place at Wombwell library, but a site for a more permanent fixture was being sought.

It was suggested that the partnership work being undertaken by Hoyland Milton and Rockingham could be shared.


The Alliance had also discussed the issues of potholes in the area, and thanks were given for the efforts of highways, noting that dangerous and severe potholes were normally filled within 24 hours.
