Hello Mentorman. I notice you haven't specified what the extra paperwork is, just referred to it as "Red Tape" As far as I am aware, there are no additional returns, risk management documentation etc etc that have to be completed or extra information that has to be published this year compared to last year or the year before. Ossy Lass stated that she raised the matter and the notice appeared on the Parish Council website but not on the notice board. If the Clerk had a genuine problem posting it on a notice board, wouldn't he or she have told Ossy Lass? I think you are too eager to give the Clerk the beneft of the doubt.
