Meeting of Radway Parish Council

The Parish Council and Mr Ridley Brown – At the monthly meeting of this Council there were present:- Messrs F W Fox (chairman), J H Mills (vice-chairman), W W Gibbins and W Woodfield.

A bill of £2.17s.6d. was presented from Mr Walter Gibbins for providing three wrag stones at the Well-gate and for other work. It was reported that there was now a balance of 13s.10d. at the bank.

The Chairman was asked to have the Well Road closed down, and also to purchase a manifold letter book.

The following letter was read from the Clerk to the Farmborough District Council in reply to the Parish Council’s letter, asking that a drainage scheme should be put in hand in the parish at once:- “the Council decided that an early appointment should be arranged with Messrs Aplin, Hunt and Co, to meet at Radway for the purpose of discussing the taking steps to carry out some scheme for draining the end of the village near the pool.” Comment was made on the inconsistency of the parish’s representative on the Rural Council in formerly treating the Parish Council’s letter as “waste paper”, and now asking for a respectable scheme.

The next meeting was fixed for February 8th.
