14/120 TO RECEIVE QUESTIONS AND PETITIONS FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC (20 MINUTES)
A resident asked the Parish Council to listen to the recording of the October meeting reference to the council being an unlimited company. The resident's view was the minutes bore no resemblance to what actually happened. Council to look into it
Phil Jones from the British Legion reported on the success of last year's Remembrance Day Parade. There were 330 people in Church with hundreds more at the Cenotaph and along the Avenues. Edwinstowe is an excellent example of community involvement on Remembrance Sunday. He asked if he could express his thanks to Alice for all her support and invaluable advice. In 2013 Edwinstowe raised £3,200 and £6,400 in 2014 during the poppy appeal.
Edwinstowe Branch has not yet been formally established as a group but has now been recognised by Nottinghamshire to have its own branch.
14/121 TO RECEIVE QUESTIONS FROM COUNCILLORS (20 MINUTES)
Cllr Tattersall has been asked by a resident to provide some signs for the cemetery asking people not to walk across graves. The resident is happy to contribute to the cost. Agreed to pass to Cemetery Working Group for decision.
Cllr Tattersall read an email from NALC concerning the Parish Council's obligation to provide a cemetery once Forest Cemetery is full up.
"...despite having the power to provide and maintain cemeteries there is no duty to make provision, so even though you have provided this service in the past once your cemetery is full there would be no legal compulsion to extend that provision."
Cllr George reported the ongoing issue of vehicles parking on and around Robin Hood Avenue. Take to next Safer neighbourhood Group
Cllr George reported the poor condition of the High Street Clerk to report
Cllr Cocking expressed the need to be proactive with looking at the possibility of extending the cemetery.

|Notts County Council - Media Release||Bilsthorpe Energy Centre Plan||
Link on website. Cllr J Peck has spoken against this at Planning Committee Meeting. It will affect Edwinstowe due to its position and size. This is an experimental type of incinerator which has been banned in some parts of Europe. It will be in the centre of the new regional park (due to be launched in July 2015). The Secretary of State has called this application in.
Cllr Tattersall stated we need to look at options for waste disposal and the incinerator could provide jobs in the locality.
