Extracts from Minutes of Ryhall Parish Council (RPC) Meeting held at The Methodist Church on 17 October 2022. Full minutes can be found on the website: 

The Parish Council congratulated the Methodist Church on refurbishment of the church hall.  Amy Crawford, Engagement Worker, gave an informative talk on Health Watch Rutland. 

Current Projects: 

Wider Research into Dementia Care. Looking to speak with patients, families and carers to learn about their experiences to be able to develop the Rutland Dementia Strategy. More information call 01527 720381 info@healthwatchrutland.co.uk https://www.healthwatchrutland.co.uk/ 

Health Watch Community Champions. Recruiting volunteers to be local area representatives. These Champions will feed back information as well as communicate information to the community. 

RPC welcomed Andy Yates as a new co-opted Councillor. 

Street Lights. Discussion took place on the costs of street lighting especially with the future Cost of Living rise due for the next financial year. Proposals to have lighting switched off at night between certain hours to save electricity or reducing the number of street lights were discussed. A feasibility study would be undertaken and a potential public consultation. 

Health Care presentation – Cllr. Andrew Nebel gave an interesting overview of the Leicestershire, Leicester & Ruland Healthcare strategies. Integrated care systems are geographically based partnerships that bring together providers and commissioners of NHS services with local authorities and other local partners to plan, co-ordinate and commission health and care services. Presentation available on the website 

Village Square Tree. The Clerk had previously been asked to have the 

Field Maple tree in the village square checked. Bytham Trees had undertaken an inspection and advised that the tree was not diseased, however with the lack of water, the restriction of the roots being surrounded by tarmac and compaction this tree will never really thrive.

Bins. The bins at St John’s Close corner and on New Road will be replaced at a cost of £20
