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; 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. He stated that there had been a development in regards to the gym, that discussions were ongoing into the possible relocation of the gym to Elmwood Place.  He added that the Parish Council are currently awaiting revised plans from the Solihull MBC architect as it is unclear if there is sufficient room for the gym and offices.  With this in mind, the Shared User Agreement is on hold.


Cllr Cornock stated that the Parish Council had held another successful Fun Day in July 2016 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.


5.  Chairman’s Address
