Could you please tell me if I have a case for libel for the

Customer Question

Could you please tell me if I have a case for libel for the follow which was published in our parish council meeting notes (19th July) naming myself and address, and have had no contact from any member of the parish council and I saw it by chance.
This is the extract from the notes the exact wording:
"The footpath between the playing field and the southern end of Rectory Lane is
overgrown from the garden of the property to the west of the footpath. That
property is believed to be owned by Mrs Diana Warren, The Green, Glinton"
I feel this should have been worded differently such as "the owner will be contacted" not with my name published. Also I feel I have been victimised as there are much worse overhanging's in other places, my husband had cut all overhangs in late June so it has not been neglected in the past.
