2) Grant Applications: There was one grant application request received from the Friends of Ashton Park in respect of £3,354 (including VAT) for the installation of a new bench and picnic table within the Park. Janet Pearce (Chair of the Friends Group) had supplied all information and pictures, which Dave had copied and circulated. Tony Watson (BwDBC) had given approval for the scheme.
Recommendation agreed: After a short discussion it was moved and seconded that the request be deferred to allow for further discussions with WEC (parent company of the proposed contractor), Crown and Newrad with a view to a better and more economic outcome. The Chair to contact Janet Pearce who in turn will contact Cllr John East and arrange to meet with WEC and liaise with Crown and Newrad. John to report back in due course.
