New Hall Development:

RS reported that significant progress continued to be made….and that we were in it at last!

Trustees acknowledged wide community support with aspects of treating frames etc which had been helped with the continual e-newsletter updates from Rick Wood.


Blamphayne timber quoted £582 for over 100m fencing and gate.


Trusteess agreed Sippins treatment best to be used as will last longer between coats and therefore lower maintenance.


LG asked we consider possible addition of wooden batten top of window height to assist with hanging materials. Agreed this could be added later as is the case with possible sound proofing.


Agreed for time being no need for serving hatch but design allows for that area to be adapted later.


ACTION: Support final stages of window/door frame treatment.


RS was thanked by Trustees for the huge amount of work he has been putting into the new hall build – hugely appreciated.



TT confirmed website team had met and allocated responsibilities. It is a community orientated website but will have sections appealing to external audience too.

Bill Corr thanked for reworking website work to date – requires all to use and register on the site.
