PARISH EMERGENCY PLAN
The Town Council is updating a new Emergency Plan for the Parish and attends regular seminars run by the Environment Agency.
The Plan includes details of contact numbers and assembly centres and a form to identify vulnerable persons who may need assistance in the event of an emergency such as a flood.
The Town Council is still seeking Volunteers to assist as Flood Wardens.
An information booklet has been delivered to all houses in the Parish containing forms to register as a volunteer or to be added to the vulnerable persons register. Spare copies are still available from Barlby Library and Community Hub
The results of the questionnaire delivered to all houses in the Parish has been analysed and almost all replies were against the proposed location for a Memorial Garden (Sycamore Road). The proposed land transfer has therefore not gone ahead and the land will remain in the ownership of the District Council.
The Town Council has now approved plans for a Memorial Garden at Barlby Library and Community Hub, it is anticipated that work will commence in September.
The Millennium Beacon will be lit at 7.00 p.m. on 11th November to commemorate the end of World War I, this is part of a Nationwide tribute to all those who served their Country during the War.
The Beacon is situated at Wainhomes Playing Field, Highfield View, Barlby. See the official tribute here.
