A resident of the village attended the meeting and raised the issue of the current state of the roads in the village and later in the meeting Cllr. Evans, giving a report on the Parish Plan Committee's progress raised the issue again.
Specifically addressing the matter of the state of the roads in the village Cllr. Sellars said:
“I pursue the matter everytime and I never get anywhere.”Giles McNeill, also a Parish Councillor, later commented:
"You really do have to wonder what makes people keep standing for office election, after election when they make statements like that. I know that if I were elected as the County Councillor for Nettleham on June 4th I would be doing everything in my power and not just declaring defeat and hoping for a quiet retirement."
