Following the successful public meeting in April a follow up meeting of volunteers was held on May 25th. This was well attended and led to the formation of some small working parties to look at the establishment of a campaigning group with a recognisable identity, and the feasibility and viability of other similar pools. There will need to be some detailed surveys and assessments done in the next few months to establish the future direction of the resource. There is an encouraging level of commitment in the volunteer group who will be active on the pool opening day July 15th. This will be free entry and we hope to engage some personalities and create some events to encourage people to attend.
Prior to a meeting with Graham, Terry, Jean and myself, I sent an email to Ian Taylor and Mike Carran, and following the meeting, I sent another email, listing various items that still required attention on the Western Prom., some of which we had been promised would be done prior to the summer season.
As a result of this, I will be meeting with Jean as soon as possible, to cover the whole of the Prom., noting all that is required to be achieved – most of it by TDC., and a little by BTC. We will take some photographic evidence, which we will pass on to Ian and Mike. Then we hold another meeting with them.
I will report again, once our action has been taken.
The B’sea. Beach Hut Association will be holding their AGM next week. Jean will be attending with me. I sincerely hope that Mike Carran will be there too. The Secretary has forwarded him questions from some of the members, and they, to some extent, echo a few of the things I have highlighted.
Having had to postpone a meeting with the Harbour Master, with a view to them removing silt from the bottom of the boating lake and then using the silt to fill the gaps between the islands and their edging, I am hoping to re-arrange this for next Monday or Tuesday accompanied by Terry and possibly Jean, if she is available.
I will be meeting with Terry next week, regarding remedial work on the grass area, the petanque area, the skate park, possible table tennis concrete table, removal of weed from the boating lake, and the plight of the cygnets that sadly didn’t survive. Jean, will attend if she is available.
We will also be meeting with the Scouts and the Model Boat Club in due course.
