The meeting was attended by both Mr de Whalley, Borough Councillor and Mr Moriarty, County Councillor .A complaint was made about the state of the right of way from East Winch to Middleton Towers and the inertia of NCC, which is responsible for ensuring that landowners maintain public footpaths to a good standard. The complainant also suggested that the Parish Council thanks Mr R Wilson for opening a pathway to the public during lockdown, to the benefit of many in the village. Cllr Moriarty and the Parish Council will contact NCC.

Thanks to George and Elsie.

George Brown started distributing the parish magazines around East Winch in 2014, and Elsie joined him the following year when she left work. They’d collect the magazines from Middleton, sorting them into 16 bundles, which they took to the people who delivered door-to-door. For most of that time, they had the Gayton magazine to give out as well as the Middleton one, so every month was delivery month, whereas now it’s only 6 times a year. I never heard any grumbles from them! They have finally retired, and Gerald Kendall has kindly agreed to take thejob over. Many, many thanks to both of you, George and Elsie!
