JUBILEE EVENT:  David reported that the event had gone really well under the circumstances.  The rain had a large impact but we ‘did our best’.  He said that there was a surplus of £313 left from the event and the groups involved had decided to hand it to TCA.  After a discussion it was decided that we should put this money into the purchase of a new strong Gazebo for future events. All agreed.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS:  David reported that the Bonfire would go ahead on the 5th November, run by the Parish Council.  He said that we should give some thought as to the ‘Bar’ on this occasion and as to whether TCA could run the inside Bar and Dave run an outside bar.  It was decided that we should approach Dave and have a discussion with him about the possibilities. It was discussed and TCA committee agreed to do the catering as in previous years with further discussions in the future.
