Regular monthly meeting took place of the Friends group.
Full meeting minutes will be posted to the site when they are ready but highlights of the meeting were –
1. New trees are to be planted using funds raised from the sale of the calendar and some other funds granted by external bodies.
2. Drainage in top area is being finalised and wild flower meadow will be planted once the ground and conditions are ready.
3. New item regarding the house – The estate agents want to repurpose the road on the drive up to the house. Basically what they want is from the left hand turn down to the allotments to the main car park in front of the house to be part of the house sale and effectively become private land. This would mean moving the entrance into the park from where it is right now beside the house to further up the road. This would mean a much steeper route into the park and would mean that if a private owner bought the house then they could bar the public from this part of the land. We believe this is a public right of way just now so the Friends group has issued an objection to this being granted. It might make the house more saleable but it’d mean the public possibly being barred from the immediate area.
Next meeting to take place on the 12th of April
