4.  Report from the Chairman of the Finance and General Purposes Committee

Cllr D Cornock stated that the Parish Council have continued to support the local community, providing free school milk to the over 5's at local primary schools, although the Parish Council have to report that one of the schools has cancelled their participation in the scheme; providing financial assistance to local community groups.  He added that the Parish Council has had another successful year, with continued attendance of customers at the Community Gym. Provisions will need to be made for updating the gym equipment over the next few years.


Cllr Cornock stated that the potential relocation of the Parish Council office and gym to Elmwood Place will not be happening.  With this in mind, the Shared User Agreement still needs to be completed.  The illegal traveller encampment on the playing field has meant discussions on the short and long term future of the field necessary.


The ground is being prepared for the medical centre, which will, hopefully, complete this phase of the regeneration.  It is hoped that this will bring in more custom for the

gym and increase membership.  


The Parish Council are now only supplying milk to one primary school after St John the Baptist School cancelled their participation in the scheme due to low numbers of children actually drinking the milk.


Cllr Cornock stated that the Parish Council had held another successful Fun Day in July 2017 and thanked Mrs Karen Woods and Miss Jerina Parker for all their hard work in organising the event, and hopes that this year’s event will be even better.
