Feedback re: display boards
WS reports we can borrow boards from Newton – suggests we go and look at them. WS/LC
Response to appeal for items for exhibition:
Although there have been expressions of interest, there has been no definite offer. We need a ‘booking system’ in place. This needs to be set up as soon as possible - 9th May 2.30pm at the Church/ Events joint meeting?
Need to ask the public at May coffee morning and have a list to sign up/prom- ise. Penny to create list.
WS referred to a number of cheaper sources of seed. Also parish council can obtain seed for £38 per kg.
It was decided that Sue P would buy seed and 2x Grow-Bags
Planting on 24th April 4pm and 26th April 2pm Need to bring forks, rakes, gloves etc
Pete reported that the licences are still not available for the coming year. (May to May)
A booking system was discussed to avoid overcrowding. It was proposed to create a flyer asking for expressions of interest. Members suggested ‘dona- tion to help with room hire’ rather than a request for specific donation.

The possibility of cover for individual events was discussed as a potentially cheaper option and Wendy will look into this too.
£183 was raised at the March coffee morning so after expenses and church share removed the total came to £84.25 for the committee. Noted that raffle takings down slightly. Was that because raffle table was less visible?
£542 received from Parish Council being remainder of AD money after Arbour Hill expenses paid.
Penny will make a flyer asking for suggestions for use of the amount for the good of the village- for next coffee morning.
