It was suggested that we purchase a solar fountain for the pond at Rosedale as last year we lost fish because of the hot weather. Chris will look into this. New flag needed on Rosedale old one is looking a little sorry for itself.
Clive R attended the TASG meeting, in future Thurrock Council will be charging peppercorn rent (no figure yet) but this will now be increased every year by the cost of inflation.
Complaints procedure to be added to tenancy agreement.
There is a rumour that the Council are going to turn the remainder of the old Bull Meadow Nursery into a wetland!
