residents in the parish recently had the chance to vote on the idea of the
Parish Meeting becoming a Parish Council.

Council to obtain their view on the matter.
Following our complaints, Inspectors have continued their out-of-hours visits to the landfill site. They have found clinical waste that was not disposed of correctly and waste that was insufficiently covered when the site was closed. The company have been issued with THREE enforcement notices on two separate occasions in the last three weeks. These are orders by the Environment Agency to put these matters right within a short length of time.

Next Parish Meeting
next Cridling Stubbs Parish Meeting is to take place on Tuesday 13th
August at 7.30pm in the village hall.
Items on the agenda are to include the future of the Village Hall,
traffic calming in the village, a Darrington Quarries Liaison Committee update, grass cutting, funding for the
village, the Eggborough Power Station pipeline and the issue of the Parish
Meeting becoming a Parish Council. Everyone
is very welcome to attend.
As announced in the last issue, a “Social Evening” is to be held at
The Ancient Shepherd. Proceeds
from the evening will help to fund the cost of campaigning against some of
the disturbing activities at the Darrington Quarries Complex (e.g. photos,
printing, telephone calls, and petrol).
Good progress is being made but more money is needed to sustain the
pressure. This Event will be
held on Wednesday, 18 September 2002.
The main attraction will be the vocal and guitar-playing talents of
John Aston. Tickets are
available from The Ancient Shepherd or The Ancient Man (Bryan Crossdale),
priced at £2.50. Come along,
you might even enjoy yourself.
