We are still awaiting Playquip to install a new Mobility Whirl and Zip Wire. This has taken longer than we envisaged, but this will be done prior to the school summer holidays.
The mounds of earth again have proved more onerous to distribute, due to the number of stones. Terry has tried to get assistance with clearing the stones, but this hasn’t happened and the men are having to pick them out. Once the work is completed, the whole area will be much improved.
Had a meeting with Ian Taylor on the Promenade last week, with Terry Hamilton, and invited Councillors Block and Howard to join me. I reiterated my request regarding the paddling pool for a new liner, but will have to discuss this matter with the Portfolio Holder at TDC. I have asked Ian to request that the beach area is checked before the season begins and if any more recharging of sand is required, and any sweeping around the path area, will be done. We also spoke again about the toilets in the car park and he is still hopeful that some refurbishment will take place. We also spoke about the access and egress to the car park, which has been on-going and am also hopeful that the wardens hut will be housed in a more attractive building, but possibly not until next season now. General aspects of the Western Promenade were discussed and I will having another meeting with Ian and Mike Carran in due course.
Gordon the Warden telephoned me and we will be meeting up in due course.
I continue to receive weekly updates from the Beach Hut Warden Co-ordinator.
Work on the outlet pipes at the paddling pool began yesterday (13th June), and following a request for hand rails on the Environment Agency Steps, this work began today (14th June).
Update and recommendations to be discussed.
