COLWALL PARISH COUNCIL. I The monthly meeting of the Colwall Parish Council was held at the Workman's Hall, Colwall, on Wednesday night. Mr Fred Ballard (Chairman), presided, and also present were Miss Holland, Messrs H E Hanson, T A Pedlingham, R 0 Allen, A G Allen, W Webb, S W Pugh, G Johns, together with the Clerk (Mr G H T Foster), and the Clerk's Assistant (Mr Thomas). A RESIGNATION. T T f I ?, I ? .1 ? ? I A leccer was reaa rrom mr li j jenmns, a member of the Council, tendering his resignation owing to his leaving the parish. Ha thanked the Council for their courtesy and kindness to him since his membership of the Council. The resignation was accepted with regret. THE G.W.R. RE-ASSESSMENT. I The Clerk stated that the G. W.R. re-assess- ment had upset the whole of the liuancial arrangements of the parishes where they ran through. The adjustment would be a complicated business. He would meet Mr. Homes (Clerk to the Ledbury Guardians) on the matter. The Clerk reported that; he had searched the minute book for the G. W. R. tourist arrange- ments. He found that in 1908 a letter was read from the Superintendent of the Q-. W. R. regrett- ing that they could not see their way to place Colwall on the list of tourist stations, but; that holders of tourist tickets could break the journey there. He had seen the stationmaster and he said they were going to issue Friday to Tuesday week-end tickets from and to Colwall. The question of the tourist arrange- ments would have to go over for another season. It was pointed out that market tickets were not issued to Worcester, but that when there were county cricket matches at Worcester cheap ticket were issned. The Chairman said the business mtu had to pay, but people going out for pleasure got off cheap. The Chairman reported that an official of the telephone service had spoken to him about the the trees obstructing the telephone wires. He told him he did not see' how anything could be done, and that the only way would be to have an overhead cable. They could not start cut- ting the trees. Mr Pedlingham reported that he was allowed to spend E2 on repairs to certain footpaths, and he presented the accounts for 92 3s 3d, the extra 3s 3d being for extra labour removing guards from trees. The accounts were ordered to be paid. The Chairman said the Housing Committee had had a meeting, but they had nothing much to report, except that they had had a meeting, and had not got much for'arder. They were rather at contrary with the Local Government Board on the question of drainage and until they had something further from them they would have nothing further to report. A letter was read from Mr Wiltshire, acknow- ledging the clerk's communication in reference to evening classes, and stating that it was improbable that any action would be taken before the autumn, when he would write further on the subject.
