Prior to the meeting Members undertook an inspection of the District which included visits to Acre Fen, Puddock and Westmoor Pumping Stations, Honeysome Road, Chatteris, Fenton Lode and Carters Bridge Farm.

Messrs James German and Mark England were appointed Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively and the Middle Level Commissioners were re-appointed as Clerk.   The Finance Committee comprising The Lord de Ramsey, D W England, M P England, J German, D R Stokes, H W Whittome and S W Whittome were re-appointed.

The Middle Level Commissioners now offer employees the chance to enter into a Cycle to Work scheme. This government led scheme encourages healthy living, reducing the effective cost of buying a bike whilst also saving carbon release by encouraging employees out of their cars and onto their bikes (estimated at carbon saving 500kg per year per person).
