There was one grant application request received from the Friends of Ashton Park (FoAP) in respect of £1,500 for the replacement of 3 interpretation signs around the Park.
The Chair had circulated relevant paperwork and a picture was circulated at the meeting of one of the vandalised signs. The Chair had also informed BwD Environment Services manager Tony Watson who acts as landowner on behalf of BwD. He had no objections to the project.
After a short discussion, a grant was AGREED in the sum of £1,000. It was noted the FoAP had £1,192.59 in their bank account with none of this money ring-fenced for other projects. So the FoAP would be requested to increase the contribution from their funds so that the Project could go ahead.
On completion of the work the contractor to bill the Town Council via the clerk in order to reclaim the VAT.
