  • Concerned Citizen says:

    How can they approve minutes of a meeting held in the future? Attention to detail is what the council needs.

  • Peter La Broy says:

    I suspect it is a typo and should read 2016. But I agree, it’s surprising neither the Mayor nor Town Clerk noticed.

  • Lucille Opie says:

    I hope that a big crowd of Bude people will attend the Town meeting on Thursday evening to ask why we are still waiting for our Bude Light to be renovated back to its original state. The Light is Bude’s Millenium Heritage Sculpture set in the Hub of Bude of which we are very proud. The town Council members who are supposed to be representing the community have been prevaricating over the Bude Light for four years now. In October 2016 the Council at last accepted the sculptor Anthony Fanshaw’s quote from the four who sent one in and he was expected to start work in March. However, having accepted his quote the council has been quibbling about the price ever since and Anthony is ready, still waiting to receive a written contract from the clerk so that he may start! Why haven’t the’ councillors’ told the clerk to send Anthony the written contract which was accepted six months ago? The job could have been finished and the Light back in its original fine setting at the centre of the Hub of Bude ready to receive our visitors!

    I lived in Bude for a very happy four years before moving to Canada! Not a day goes by when I don’t miss the beauty of the Coast & country side! I keep in touch with dear friends who still live in Bude , friends who have a fierce passion to ensure that certain heritage features , especially the BUDE LIGHT , the pride of. Bude, be maintained & treasured for all locals and visitors to see and admire . I do hope that many attend the meeting and get the council to see the light 🌟
    No more procrastinating please. give Anthony Fanshaw the green light to start renovating .i shall be there in spirit.
