b.)  Upstairs Showers.

Members were informed that the Clerk had received an email from a gym customer regarding the shower in the health suite and disabled toilet.

It was RECOMMENDED: That the Clerk inform the gym member of the following:

1.)  There is no extractor fan in the room that they refer to.  The vents are part of the air circulation system that was installed when the premises was built.

2.)  The shower is not blocked.  The pipe work that was installed at the time of building means that the water is slow to drain away.

3.)  The temperature in the shower that they refer to, although the Parish Council appreciate that it runs hot, can not be adjusted without the schools permission and will cost an extortionate amount of money to rectify, which the school are not prepared to pay as it only affects this shower.
