Emergency Aid - Ted has prepared and circulated within the village a provisional plan which gives useful information and advice. See also the item under 'Winter Resilience'.

CHARGES FOR THE USE OF THE HALL AND HIRE OF EQUIPMENT Hire of the hall: £6 per hour - this to include equipment in the hall. To take out equipment, the following charges will apply: Tables - £10. Chairs - £10. Kitchen Crockery/equipment - £10. Any items damaged must be replaced by the hirer. Charity and church events in the hall are free of charge.

Winter resilience: The Council had provided our winter resilience equipment.

We have a full yellow road salt bin outside the hall. We also have 3 shovels, 3 fluorescent tabards and 3 sets of gloves.Ted has put one shovel outside with the bin and the other 2 and the tabards and gloves inside the hall porch on the left hand side. There is also a board on the wall in the porch where the equipment hangs; the remaining hooks can be used for extra coat storage. Training is being provided for the Madag volunteers.


Speeding vehicles in the 20mph zone are a concern as the speed limit is being ignored. The council/police will monitor the situation.


Flooding - Work on the flood prevention drainage scheme has been completed. However, the contractor is to return to the site to carry out remedial work regarding water flow levels to the burn as requested by the Clerk of Works and DGHP.


The bowlers are delighted with the result of the floor cleaning, sanding and polishing. New bowling carpets are needed; these will be ordered and paid for and an application for wind farm money will be submitted to cover the cost.


Work will be starting soon on the exterior of the hall which has become shabby over the past few years.


After an assessment visit from representatives of Machars Movies it was agreed that the hall is suitable fpr showing films and they will contact MADAG when more information is available.




Remember: fundraising ideas are always welcome.
