New library

The old library has been demolished and removed. The new building is now on site and the work is progressing well. By the time you read this, landscaping should be complete, and most of the internal fitout as well. Flooring will be finished during the first week of October, leaving only commissioning and testing of lighting, plumbing, data, alarms and air conditioning. Then the library group can start moving in! A sub-committee has been formed to plan an opening ceremony.

Following a report which examined the condition of all 24 public benches, excluding those located on the Wildlife Group’s maintained areas, the Council have purchased eight new benches for the community and installation is being arranged. These are for locations suggested following the public consultation and any replacements where required.

Audio Equipment

The hall has been examined for the installation of improved audio equipment and the fitting of acoustic panels to the ceiling. Quotes are awaited.
