Any Other Business
Concern was raised about the continuing presence of the caravan in the Car Park. Space is already limited with residents' cars being parked there, and visitors to the Hall are having to park elsewhere.
[The owners of the caravan have stated that they will be removing it within a week and taking it to its winter storage. This is now confirmed. Sec.]
