Bainbridge Parish Council – Clerks Report
Parish Insurance and the Turner Seat
The Parish insurance is taken out via Came and Company specialist brokers. I have written to the insurance brokers with details of the turner seat including photos provided by Geoffrey KEEBLE. The insurers have come back as follows: –
Thank you for your email.
If the Parish Council agrees to be responsible for either owning or maintaining The Turner Seat the policy we arrange with Aviva will provide Public Liability Insurance automatically for no additional premium.
Loss and damage cover can also be provided if the Parish Council have agreed to be responsible for this. In order to be able to provide a quotation I will need to know the replacement value of the seat. Please note a £250 excess will apply to any one claim.
I can also confirm the Parish Council’s Public Liability Insurance covers the Parish Council’s play area. Cover is subject to all equipment being routinely checked at least weekly by someone appointed by the Council.
I trust this advice is of assistance but please contact me again if any further questions arise.
Asset Register update
Tim Prudden is very kindly looking at the asset register and is reviewing the full inventory of the assets in Bainbridge. There are many benches which need attention and some that will be recommended for removal. The asset register is once again placed on the agenda to officially review with recommendations.
The local highways inspector has been instructed to go to Car End and look in to the matter of the placed stones and will deal with accordingly.
Apologies were provided over the Marsett funeral and the road arrangements. The reason for this was a confusion over the dates.
Our Highway Officer has checked the gullies leading from Edge Hill down towards Countersett and has placed an order to have them cleaned. He dug out an area around the headwall near the drain on Stalling busk to Countersett. Once all the gullies are cleaned they should be ready for winter.
Final accounts 2016/17
The final summaries and external audit sign off have been posted to the website

On Saturday the 14th of September I needed to us the public toilets in Bainbridge only to find that there was a charge to us them, I wouldn’t have minded this if the lights worked and the floor wasn’t swimming in water but this was the case and it wasn’t what I expected. I do hope that this isn’t the case in all the converted toilets. I just hope that the cost of converting these toilets will be have a short payback time, because tourists will find other places to go to so will not be paying
