Minutes of 2013 AGM Agreed and signed.

Having found myself as Chairman of the Millennium Green earlier this year because of R.Dunn’s resignation, I hope that everything is running as planned. Mr Lake has been cutting the fields, two new dog waste bins have been purchased and put on the fields. Thanks to Mr J. Fowler for doing this. A big thank you must go to Alun Gibbs for emptying bins, clearing dog waste, strimming, pruning and clearing out the pond. Thanks also to Hilary and Eric Aspinwall for replanting the maze and to Micky Wigg for checking that safety is OK on the Green especially with regards the play equipment. Also, I must thank Debbie Muller for helping me with any problems that turn up. The dog bins are still being emptied on a Sunday by Pooper Scooper, the school are still using the Green for their forest school and we have let the church use the Green for parking at several funerals. We hope to have some fundraising events in the future. We are looking to sell the scythe and replace it with a ride on lawn mower.

Election of Officers:
Chairman – Nigel Webster (proposed by M.Wigg, seconded by H. Aspinwall)

Lifebelt – look into buying a new one to replace the one that has gone missing.
There are approximately 5 goldfish in the pond which is bad for the pond ecology. Will assess numbers in the Spring and decide if action is required.
Apple trees – Hilary to research information on correct pruning.
Nest boxes – would be lovely to put up more bird boxes and maybe some insect boxes.
