Rosedale Road Report:
Rubbish is being dragged to gate by holder of plot 13S. Hopefully this will be cleared by our friendly driver.
As Alan Collins has been tied up this year with his bowls, he suggested that Keith Bacon becomes Asst. Site Manager as he has knowledge of machinery and is mostly readily available. This was seconded and passed. Key is to be obtained from Clive Robertson.
Brush cutter to be taken for repair.
Work party to be arranged for October to clear the weeds from Boscombe entrance. If any member has shrubs to spare they will be gratefully received.
