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.
