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 Smith’s Wood Primary Academy; 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. One new piece of gym equipment had been purchased this year. The Parish Council have decided that there is no longer
any need to amend the Shared User Agreement and ratification on this still needs to be completed.
medical centre is almost completed and will open in the summer. It is hoped that this will bring in more custom for
the gym and increase membership. Cllr Cornock added that the Parish Council need to concentrate on getting their finances
straight and ensure that any expensive items are budgeted for at the precept meeting. This Government has stopped Parish
and Town Councils from precepting any amount of money and this has caused many Councils to struggle financially with cuts
Cllr Cornock stated that the Parish Council had held another successful Fun Day in July
2018 and thanked Mrs Karen Woods and Miss Jerina Parker for all their hard work in organising the event, and although there
is no fun day planned for this year, he hopes that one will be planned for next year.
