Minutes:The Minutes of the meeting held on Wednesday 9th May 2012 were circulated prior to the meeting. It was proposed by Mrs S Wilson, seconded by Mr L Haslam and agreed unanimously that these be signed as a true record.

Matters Arising:

1.Recreation Ground: The Clerk told the meeting that the funds from the old Playing Field Committee in the form of a bank account ( 270.00) had been passed to the Parish Council.

Mrs Curry said this seemed an appropriate moment to begin reforming a new Playing Field Committee. It was decided that Mrs Curry, Mr Haslam and Mrs Chow would be the P.C. representatives. Mrs Curry took the old bank account to see if it could be changed to the new committee members. It was proposed by Mrs Curry, seconded by Mr Haslam and agreed unanimously that once this account was reactivated the 500.00 received from Western Power Distribution for access over the Recreation Ground should be lodged in the account.

Mrs Curry reported that she had been in touch with Ben Pollock of Laings who stated that if he received a letter from the Parish Council with a brief description of the project the Council had in mind then the first 5 year batch of money (7,500 x 5) could be made available. Mrs Curry pointed out the significance of this news, in that this meant that she could then approach NG and other potential funders. Mrs Curry said she had a plan A: Develop a Hall on the Recreation Ground. Plan B: Improve the Cator Hall.

2. Wind Farm: Mrs Curry pointed out that no one could miss that 5 turbines were now in position and that it was important to acquire a name at Kelham Hall to contact if problems of noise or flicker arose.

Any Other Business:

There was no other business.
