Miss Richardson welcomed Janice Howell and Mrs. Moir. Then Janice Howell gave a talk on her job which appears to have a large input into giving advice on Fund Raising and form filling for various other Grant giving organisations. It is suggested that maybe the Village would like to carry out a Parish Plan for which a grant of 75% would be available with a further 20% being obtained from voluntary sources with maybe the Parish Council supplying the other 5%. Mis Howell suggested that all present went away and gave thought to the various options and then get in touch with her for help with the next step.
