Following a recent software upgrade, it is now possible to post draft minutes to the website, so that those local residents who are enthusiasts, can read the minutes of recent meetings before they are formally adopted by Cllrs at the monthly meeting following.
The March 2018 meeting of the Parish Council will be held in the meeting room at Tockwith Academy on 20 March at 7.30pm.

If you have experienced any difficulties when reading the Parish Council's website, this is probably being caused by the use of Microsoft's Windows 10 software. Using Google Chrome may solve the problem. Please however advise the Clerk (email@example.com) so that the web hosting company can be advised, when this occurs.
If any local resident would like to read a copy of the latest annual accounts, they can now be viewed on this website. If you would prefer it, a copy of the accounts can be emailed to you direct by request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Many residents will know that the Parish Council now owns two Defibrillators, one for use in each Village. The defibrillators are housed in secure boxes, one in Bilton in Ainsty (newly installed in a heated cabinet) and the other at Jesmond Dene Main Street Bickerton. The boxes are locked and can be opened by anyone directed by the Ambulance Emergency Service to collect a defibrillator, in case of an emergency. There are trained 'first responders' in each Village who can be contacted by the Emergency Ambulance Service in the event that a 999 call is received.
