– Cllr. Kochanowski gave an update stating that
The F&GPWP recommended that the PC accept the £12,500 offer from NCC for the dilapidations. Although all members were very disappointed they agreed it was better to accept the offer rather than spend money on a legal battle.

Crawford has a meeting later this week to discuss our business rates.
8621. FLAG POLE AND FLAG – The Chairman tried to fly the flag for the Royal Wedding but the pole is too close to the building, it needs a extending and a larger bracket to bring it out further. Cllr. Kochanowski offered to go and see Earl Engineering to get a quote.
8622. MEDEN BATHS – At the special meeting on 16th June the SOS group asked if the PC could support them to purchase bottled water to sell at the Carnival and in local retail outlets with any profit made to go back into community projects.

The Chairman said the PC could not purchase the water to claim back the VAT but could store it and support the project.
8623. BIG LOTTERY – The interim steering group are having a marquee at the Carnival to do the final public consultation.
