I have been concentrating on persuading the Parish Clerks to submit applications to use up the grant fund that is available to me. To this end the School and the Parish have benefitted from 20 new adult chairs which hopefully will be in use this evening. I have also assisted other Parish Councillors with different projects. The most prominent subject matter has been the involvement of the devolution bid that EHDC are involved with as we were founder members along with Solent, Havant, Southampton, Eastleigh and the Isle of Wight Councils.

New green marking will be measured out and we are informed that, with the narrower run of the bowls on the new surface, our 40 metre square green will be able to support 8 rinks, rather than the 6 rinks we use at present. The order we have placed includes new green edging and banks but the old ditch liners will be cleaned and re-used. ...
