Present: Mr M. Edwards (in the chair), Mr K. Bishop, Mrs C. Harris, Mr Hince, Mrs S. Lawson,
Mr T. Williams

96/17. APOLOGIES: Mr Lindsay

97/17. DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST: None

98/17. ELECTRICAL INSPECTION

The electrical inspection had raised serious issues about the safety of the club pavilion and which meant that it could not be used until the problems had been put right.

Berry & Davies had submitted a quote of £983.60 + VAT. Mr Hince had a verbal quote which was around the same figure. He would investigate other quotes. He was very anxious to have the pavilion back in use as soon as possible because the Club would be fined if it had to move games more than once or twice. He would let the Parish Council know as soon as he had other quotes.

The Football Club would make a contribution towards the cost.

There were also some issues raised about the village hall mostly involving emergency lighting. The Chairman was meeting with Herefordshire Fire Services the following week to look at these.

There being no other business the meeting was closed.
