Meeting with Chris Hammond on 9.1.09.

These are the notes from last Friday's meeting.

Marjo, Des Bowring, Simon Randolph and I met up with Chris Hammond in the park, to talk about some of our current projects and ideas for the future. Chris was accompanied by Bryan Williams of Continental Landscapes who manages maintenance of the park on behalf of the Council. Chris had asked Bryan along to provide continuity given the likelihood of him being moved on to another job with the Parks dept. Here are some of the main things… Continue

Hello John

I hope to meet you and other members at your meeting this week.

The other item of interest re Parks in the Budget as you probably know is R-PL-005, which is about 'reducing the specification of works in Parks' - but will this only come in when they put out the tender in 2015 or before then, and what precisely does it mean?

See you soon

Best wishes

Stella Perrett

John, as you are not prepared to answer my questions here - something I find extremely rude - would you say that the next committee meeting is the right place for me to ask them?

some of the messages on that thread seem to be missing. Have they been removed?

Hello John

I would not expect you to take sides, and indeed would not ask that: I just wanted to know if there was any sort of control or moderation. The problem with unmoderated forums is that when one hothead starts trouble by leaving a nasty post, there is a choice of either leaving it there for all to see, or answering it.
If Des is allowed to say what he likes without any need to take responsibility for it, we're on the slippery slope to a much less pleasant place.

Forum decorum, John.

I wish to donate £100 to a Welsh Slate Memorial Plaque to commemorate

these Brave, RAF Servicemen but I do not wish to donate to a wooden plaque

Is there a fund dedicated to the Welsh Slate Memorial engraved with

the Wellington Bomber & the names of the Crew?......I do not wish to

donate to Friends of St Andrews Park & my donation just be swallowed up.

A completely separate Appeal would seem to be the way forward & then we

can be assured that our funds are going to be used for this purpose alone.

If a Charity is formed for this precise purpose then people can donate

by & Gift Aid will then be applied ......I think we need to

look at these avenues or has our Heritage Lottery bid been successful?

I stand ready to go round the houses in the area canvassing donations.....

if this is necessary.

All the Best,

Hi John,

David Cemlyn has given me details of how people can give towards the memorial. I have added them to my website Can you let me have your e-mail address, so I can turn your name into a link and people can contact you directly if they need to know more? Also, are you a charity and can people gift aid their donations? If so, how do they do this?
