17/04 Matters Arising
There were no matters arising from the Minutes.
17/05 STRATEGY FOR THE RECREATION GROUND
The water tower has now been removed from the Pavilion roof and various other remedial works carried out. The agreed strategy for the RG continues. The old container is in the process of being emptied and LW said that Julian is assisting in this. Fixtures lists for the users are to be submitted at the start of each season and it is hoped to e-mail these as well as post them on the Pavilion notice board.
17/06 ANY OTHER BUSINESS
JT said that a list of required repairs was being prepared in order of priority, and would be submitted to the PC for their next meeting. There had been a break-in and damage had been caused to the door and two cabinets. Complaints have been received by visiting Bowling Teams about access beyond the Pavilion to the Bowling Club when a cricket match was on. Clarification was needed as to whether cars could go through on Cricket Match days. Young people had ceased to go to the Bowling Club as football was now on all year and since the nets has been taken down youths were kicking balls at the Bowling Club fence.
LW complained that the Footballers were not keeping the new container tidy, making it difficult for the Cricket team to store their stuff. She asked if shelving could be installed in the container.
Parking bays are to be marked out and the implementation of this is to be discussed at the next TRGC Meeting.
Extra signs are to be put up in an effort to stop people taking dogs on to the RG. JT said that they knew some visitors to the Bowling Club brought dogs and had been asked not to let them out on to the field, but had come up against a great deal of abuse. This rule is a difficult one to enforce.
EN observed that the floor in the Pavilion had not been properly swept, and there was some rubbish on the floor in the changing room. The tables had been left unwiped and mugs used for drinks had been left on the side and not washed out. She stressed that the Chairman had everyone's interests at heart and was determined the provide a pavilion and recreation ground that would be a credit to the village, but proper respect needed to be shown by users for the facilities provided and the appropriate care taken.
The Meeting was concluded at 7.50 p.m.
THE NEXT MEETING WILL BE ON THE 21st SEPTEMBER 2010 AT THE PAVILION AND WILL COMMENCE AT 7.00 p.m.
