The West Hill Community Association AGM was held on 30 June, at which the yearly accounts were adopted and the committee was re-elected en bloc after standing down. However, we are always looking for new members and volunteers so if you had to miss the meeting and would like to join us, please get in touch. Reports were received from Sylvia Alexander-Vine and Lianne Hall concerning the extensive use of the Hall by people of all ages undertaking a variety of activities, and the news that the Hall is now registered as a venue for civil ceremonies and weddings. Although the fee for this registration has been paid by our first couple, we will now be paying rates and intend to renovate the kitchen.
Pam Bean reported on the enthusiasm of the Wild Life Garden group who have created an imaginative and flourishing haven in the garden surrounding the Hall. They had the need for an outdoor tap, answered voluntarily by Laurence Parker, a local businessman and trader, who generously gave time, thought and skill to helping the group when he knew their work would benefit from having water on hand. Mr Parker has also said he will mend the wooden strut of our notice board at the beginning of the approach twitten where he has had flowers planted along the border, making the entrance more attractive. The freshly repaired pathway, tarmac covered over with gravel, is a most welcome addition to the health and safety of the Hall users after a very busy period of construction of the 3 town houses behind the Hall undertaken by Mr Parker. Thank you.
