At the annual parish council meeting last week, PCSO Dave Nickerson reported there had been 67 calls to the police in the month. He said the KIN policing priority was parking along Coast Road near the school. The issue of cars parked on bends at Seafields Drive was raised. It was suggested that discussions take place between neighbours/residents, as there were no parking restrictions in that area and were unlikely to be any imposed in the future.
He added the Homewatch set up by residents covering Trafalgar Grange had been split into five areas, with a co-ordinator for each.
Before the meeting proper started, Mike Butcher was re-elected as chairman and Ken Hicks as vice-chairman.
Val McGee said clearing and cleaning was continuing at the site of St Margaret's Church ruins. Some planting had taken place and the committee was working on summer fundraising events.
