Items of importance dealt with week commencing 23rd July 2018

Play Equipment

There has been a lot of chatter on facebook about the play equipment which has been removed by ourselves. This is the slide that is located next to the trampoline and it has been condemned by our insurance company and also the Play Inspection Company. The wood has totally rotted out and it was not safe anymore. We are looking at quotes for replacing the equipment and I will bring this to Council when the quotes are all in.

BMX Track

The BMX Track needs repairing as there are gaping holes appearing in the structure which again could be dangerous. We have closed the track and I am obtaining a quote for the repairs and this will be brought to the Finance Committee as there needs to be a discussion as to whether the usage warrants further costs.

Cash Machine

Following on from the notice to be served on Royal Mail regarding their lease I have asked that consideration be given in the notice to the Council allowing a cash machine to be installed in the side of the building. The only place Barclays will permit a cash machine is on the sorting office wall opposite South Street.

Hunts Meadow

Under the terms of the Promotion Agreement there will be a marketing meeting held with the Council regarding the marketing of this development. The time and date has not yet been fixed. Planning permission has been granted on the site.


The construction of the road for the Pathfields Business Park Phase 4 is due to commence on 13th August and the contract is to be signed hopefully next week. They have also asked if we would like to participate in a pre-contract turf moving ceremony to celebrate the commencement of works. I will let everyone know when this will be held.

Gothia Cup Thank You Meeting

The meeting in the Town Hall for the Junior Football Club to say thank you for all the donantions which enabled them to compete abroad will be at 5.30pm in the New Assembly Rooms on Monday 30th July. The Town Council did make a donation for this competition.

Forthcoming Meetings

The only meeting next week is the Arts Destination Meeting at 6.30pm in the Amory Centre on Monday 30th July.
