Public Toilets – Public access: The Council were made aware that the pre-school were required to provide a safe outdoor play area. This meant extending the height of boundary wall at the Memorial Hall and blocking off the access to the public toilets To meet these
requirements, a fence could be erected inside and higher than the existing wall. The work to be funded by a grant obtained by the pre-school. The Parish Council were asked to consider providing an alternative access to the public toilets as entry was currently via the hall garden. Councillors agreed in principal to this request, but resolved to await the comments of the Hall Committee.
