Minutes No meeting in February as little to discuss at the moment.
Treasurer’s Report The only payment out was to the roofers who had reduced their bill to £350 as they were unable to carry out the extent of the work requested and planned. We had received three grants since the last accounts totalling £6239.
Correspondence None received
1) See Treasurer. Roof had been “patched” once again and still the source of the leak not identified. We can only continue to monitor for any more leaks at this stage. To investigate further the roofers would have had to unscrew and remove all the roof panels on the leak side and replace them, a much bigger and more expensive job than they had quoted for.
2) Daggs had cleared the gutters for us but did not do the roof partly as not too bad, partly not having a broom to hand but also the builders were working there at the time.
Fund raising None except grants
1) AO commented on the big holes in the car park due to the gravel gradually moving. SV suggested any of us who had the time and inclination to try could rake some back into the holes but also felt this was not very easy as although the gravel did get pushed out of the dips it wasn’t always obvious where the excess had gone. She suggested that while we can try and improve it ourselves, maybe as a group effort once mixing is allowed, if that was not successful we order some from a supplier such as Champions.
2) SV thanked VT who had contacted her about the forthcoming annual Parish Council Newsletter which she felt should have an update entry from the Hall amongst others. She had kindly come up with a suggestion on what to include and SV had been happy to agree.
Note from chair, it was good seeing you all but roll on face to face meetings, maybe in June
Date of next meeting Monday 5th April at 8pm, (Easter Monday) via zoom
