the displays are also badly damaged.

track and advised that the importance of meeting was to let the Pre-school project know the position of the
Parish Council, as this would improve grant applications. Cllr Roger Brace advised that funding will determine
certain factors, if the building is new or old, 5 or 8 bay structure and determine the standard of internal fit. Cllr
Roger Brace recognised that the community room is small but there is a need for such a facility in the
community.

congratulate them on there ambitions, but advise that the community aspect is too small and not feasible as a
community centre.

Project is up and running, and that the Parish Council should support the 5 bay proposal
