Treasurer’s Report

The Chairman reported that all invoices received thus far had been completed and that the current bank balance stood at £1,308.49.


Matters Arising:

Website: New photographs being regularly added and Facebook   section going well.

Projects: The most recent work party had now completed the planting of 420 trees.  Benches had been numbered and identification as to their installation by FoRP attached.   Submissions have been made to the Community Chest for funding to the outdoor gym and the ancient pond reclamation.

Fallen tree branches have now been removed from the pond and further work with a mini digger is now intended.   CPM has agreed to the digger with park keeper supervision. 

The possibility for the gradual installation of a nature trail was discussed and any ideas in this connection are welcomed.

The ‘Royal Oak’ is being cared for until a suitable location and timing is agreed.

Danny Squires has agreed to provide instruction on coppicing of the millennium wood this autumn.  Also a ‘Bat Walk’ is envisaged.
