The committee has reviewed the estimates for the current round of repair and maintenance projects and concluded that the cost of completing all of them exceeds the funds currently available. The work has therefore had to be prioritised and approval given to proceed with the highest priority items. These are the repairs to the swings and roundabout in the children’s play area and the repair and repainting of the hall’s external woodwork.
To enable the remaining items to be completed, the committee is exploring options for raising funds from grant giving bodies as well as organising our own fund-raising events. Sadly the Beer and Sausage festival had to be cancelled but there are plans for two more events this year – A Charlton History evening (Thursday 22 September) and Quiz Night (Saturday 15 October) – See What’s On page for details.
