SMTC Weekly Report 8/6/18
By Andrew Coates, Town Clerk, Jun 8 2018 03:00PM
Items of importance dealt with week commencing 4th May 2018
The woodland path repairs have now been completed and myself and Matt Ray had a walk around with Alan Dart on Wednesday. They have repaired the worst areas especially on the sloping paths which encircle the new Gullacombes estate. As the ditches have been re- instated the paths should not be swamped with water. Also we have used a superior type of scalpings which should be more durable. Hence the red patches on the repaired parts which will wash off with time.

The festivities for the Olde English Fayre commence today with the tea dance form 2.00pm to 5.00pm in the Assembly Rooms followed by the Children’s disco for under 12s from 7.00pm.
