The Parish Council hopes to appoint a new Council Support Officer in the New Year who will look after the Grosvenor Centre bookings and carry out some of the administration of council projects. The Council will focus on making improvements to the surfacing of the play area car park, will resume planning and designing sensory garden as part of being a Dementia Friendly organisation, will continue to work with architects on making improvements to the Grosvenor Centre and will be replacing some play equipment on Brookhouse Road park. The Council will support GG’s Youth Club with changes to its youth club service, will support the over 84’s teas and best kept village team projects in 2020. The Council is also reviewing all its policies in line with Quality Gold criteria to ensure that the Council remains compliant and all councillors will be attending a training session in January. The budget for 2020/21 will be agreed in January and will include plans for the VE Day 75th Anniversary and a summer fun day. The budget will have to take into account additional maintenance as well as the loss of some funding for example funding from the County Council for grass cutting which has been reduced by 25%. The Parish Council will endeavour to apply for grants and funding wherever possible but will have to increase the precept to help meet both the increased and additional costs. Further information about this will be shared with parishioners in the coming months.
