12.  Any other business (not on the agenda)



12.1.              Football on the Recreation Group



The Chair noted that he has received a request from the Football Club that the Parish Council pay for the Club’s outstanding match to be played elsewhere as they had only been able to play 7 games through the season and the final, rearranged match clashed with a cricket fixture.  It was estimated that the cost of an alternative pitch would be £40-£50 and the cost of the referee would be £26.  It was agreed that the council would pay for the pitch.  The chair will clarify whether the referee cost is an extra cost.



There being no further business the meeting closed at 7:15pm.
