New Fencing in Shilton Playing Fields
The next time you're in Shilton playing fields, you'll hopefully notice that there is a whole length of new fencing along that part of the field that runs alongside Wood Lane.
The parish council was aware that the existing fencing was looking broken and shabby due to its age, and so sought quotes to replace it. CJL Gates & Engineering from Clifton upon Dunsmore submitted the most competitive quote and were given the contract to supply and fit 60m of round post and half rail fencing. The cost to the parish council was £630.
I was co-opted onto Shilton Parish Council in June 2006, elected for the first time in May 2008, and then re-elected in May 2012, as a local parish councillor for Shilton and Barnacle in Warwickshire. Since May 2012, I have been the Chairman of the parish council. This blog is my contribution to informing local people of what one of their parish councillors gets up to on their behalf, as well as trying to shed a bit more light on the world of local councils and politics in the area.
