(1)  The David Marchant Pavilion

The clerk advised that work on the Pavilion was complete and as previously agreed the pavilion will be officially opened by Mr Marchant in Spring, 2016.

The clerk advised that despite strong pressure by the Parish Council to complete the purchase as soon as possible, there are still outstanding issues to be resolved with the Methodist Church before this can happen. 

 

(3)  Proposed Meeting with the School/PTA

The clerk advised that a date for the above meeting had not yet been set up and with the school shortly closing for Christmas it was more likely that the meeting would be held early in the New Year.
