Thirty of our members attended our AGM. We really appreciated your time, as well as your useful comments and questions. The public meeting was also well attended with a full room.

The chair, Adrian Nagle, gave his report to the members giving a brief history of where we started, the progress made to date and the plans for the future.
All members were given a copy of the annual accounts for 2018, and Debbie Tomkins gave a report of the important points contained within the accounts. These were adopted.

The next steps were outlined - freehold for the land to be transferred to the Parish Council, the walls of the garden to be made safe (Parish Council(, and then the build. The build is a modular construction, and will take around ten weeks.
Members asked questions about the Post Office (which is confirmed), shop products, the consideration of people with disabilities and dietary needs and the café capacity.
