The wall on the old changing rooms had been re-plastered. The Chairman had contacted the contractor in relation to the grass cutting work.
The disposal of grass cutting continued to be a problem. Cllrs agreed to the grass being disposed of at Tinten Manor by the Contractor.
Footpaths/ plus Longstone: In addition to trimming the footpath behind St Mabyn Chapel the contractor will be asked to trim the grass areas adjacent to the Longstone notice board and the parish seats. The Cornwall Council will be asked to trim the verges at Longstone and the visibility areas for the junctions off the B3266.

Allotments: After hearing the contents of a letter received from Stratton & Holborrow dated the 20th May 2009, the Council resolved not to consider the inclusion of a car park on the area of Glebe land adjacent to the Memorial Hall. An alternative area for allotments on the site, different from that originally proposed, would be considered. The current tenant of the land had been notified of the Councils proposals. Another site at Glenmorris will also be considered.
Public Toilets – public access: The Council await the decision from the Memorial Hall Committee regarding the fencing of the boundary wall before making a decision on whether or not to provide an alternative access to the public toilets.

The Friends of St Mabyn Church (reg charity no 1105840) are busy organising their annual ‘Jazz on the Green’ fundraiser, performed by the Bodmin College Jazz Orchestra under their new Musical Director, Ben Simpson. The band will perform on the Green behind the school in St Mabyn on Saturday 11th July from 6.30-9pm. Entry is £5 for adults and £3 for under 18s. Children under 6 years old are FREE! This is a very informal family occasion where the energetic dance, the kids have fun and everyone has a wonderful time. Please bring chairs and picnics as refreshments are not available on site, although snacks may be available from the village shop or nearby Inn.
If wet, the band will perform in the historic St Mabyn Church, which is well known not only for having the second highest tower in Cornwall but was also the Church used for filming the wedding scenes in the last Doc Martin series on ITV.
This will be Bodmin College Jazz Orchestra’s last performance of the school year and half the proceeds from the event will go to the Orchestra, which has one year remaining in which to raise money for its tour of the USA in 2010. The other half will go to The Friends of St Mabyn Church. These extremely talented youngsters never fail to give a very varied and pleasing performance so please give them some well deserved support. Enquiries: 01208 841607.
