Issue regarding anti-vandal paint/signs. It seems that there may be more of a problem with barbed wire than with anti-vandal paint with regards to the insurance company.
We will verify this when our insurance is due for renewal in January, and will ask them to confirm in writing to make matters clearer. Quotes should be obtained from more than one company. Also Clive Robertson(who works for solicitors) has someone investigating for him.
Conifer trees overhanging RR site from Medina Road should be cut back next Tuesday. The Council are arranging for an on-site inspection regarding trees cemetery side. A new fire brigade lock will be put on Bull Meadow gate as a temporary measure.
