4 Treasurer’s report


Colin could not be at this meeting but sent word from Zagreb that there had been very little change in the Sax Fest fund which stands at £7159. Outgoings include: £300 on ‘Acts’ to appear at the event; £825 on marquees, £200 for bar hire; and £1625 for the stage. When we hold the football club evening, we will give 50% of the

profits to them and keep 50% towards the festival.


5 Any other Business.


Brenda confirmed that she had sent an email to Maddie at the Town Hall. However having had no response she will send a reminder ASAP.


5.1 Proposed zebra crossing in Rendham Road.


Terry has been in touch with the person who proposed this crossing to explain that plans are in hand to put one or more footpaths in the area of the Memorial Field one of which will cross the field from the Scout Hut and exit into Seaman’s Avenue. Brenda asked if plans are still in hand to provide some form of speed detection nearer the top of Rendham Road to monitor traffic speeds leaving the A12. Terry will ask about this.


5.2 Fido bins


Brenda has again sent an email to Maddie asking if she has received a response from the District Council. Maddie has since confirmed she sent a copy of our email to ESDC
