The Parish Council meets again next week, to discuss Parish Council matters. At the next meeting the minutes of the last meeting will be adopted, either with or without minor amendments. At the last meeting it was on the agenda to discuss writing to The Parks Trust to ask them to repair the banks of the Loughton Brook. In the minutes of the meeting held at 6:30pm on Thursday 21 February 1894, held in the Loughton School classroom, it is written:

“Mr Cartwright Proposed and Mr Kitchener seconded ‘That steps be taken to straighten Loughton Brook beyond Loughton Green with the view of preventing the floods in this neighbourhood.’ Carried. Mr Punter did not vote.

Mr Cartwright propd. And Mr Kitchener seconded that the riparian owners, Mr Francis and the Stony Stratford Pavement Charity Trustees, be approached with a view to putting the above resolution in force. Carried. Mr Punter did not vote.”

It seems ownership of the Brook has always been complicated! Also, I wonder why Mr Punter did not vote? (please excuse any errors in transcription)
