6. ANY OTHER BUSINESS
• The grass on Frant football pitch was not cut over the whole of the summer. Therefore, when it was cut it was too long for the contractor to clear up. The Clerk is to contact the contractor to organise another cut before the school bonfire night and to ensure that the uncleared grass will not cause a problem.
• Cllr Crookshank sent his apologies for the next full council meeting. It was decided to defer the item regarding Councillor responsibilities until the November meeting.

There being no other business the meeting closed at 7:50pm
