The next Parish Council Meeting will be held on Friday 28 February 2020 in Blaxton Village Hall at 19:00. The Agenda for the meeting is available here.
Doncaster Council is currently offering advice notices, at a cost, to post in open spaces throughout the Borough detailing the rules governing the use of drones in these areas.
Irrespective of whether notices are displayed, everyone should note that since July 2018, “You must not fly a Drone above 400 feet (120 metres) or within five kilometres (3 miles) of any airport or airport boundary” which means that drones should not be flown anywhere in Blaxton because of its proximity to the airport. If you do fly a drone you risk a fine or prosecution. If challenged, it is unlikely that compliance with all of the other rules governing drones would be a defence against a fine or prosecution. Please exercise care.

CAP (Community Alcohol Partnership) Launch
CAP is an initiative that was launched on 25th July with the aim of reducing underage drinking and drug use in our villages (Auckley, Branton, Blaxton, Cantley and Finningley) and associated anti-social behaviour. It is a multi-agency initiative involving SY Police, DMBC Youth Services and Officers, DMBC Ward Councillors, Parish Councils, local Stores, local youngsters and others who share the concerns.
In Finningley the problems occur mainly on the playing fields (teen shelter and children's play area) where some youngsters meet and behave inappropriately. They leave litter (not in the bins provided so they are liable to £150 fine), play loud music, and leave detritus that suggests they have access to alcohol and drugs.
The initiative has six aims:
The six-month programme is seen as "educational" rather than "enforcement" but it was made clear at the launch that enforcement is always an option.
