The following updates were noted:-


Cudworth:  It was reported that the coffee mornings that had finished due to covid had received 6 months of funding to start up once again and would be held the third Saturday of each month.  Tea in the Park was announced to be held on 22nd July 2023 and had a working volunteer team to support the event.  An update was provided on the new process of putting hanging baskets up around the area.


North East:  It was reported that the base was to be laid for a new bench at the pit wheel as a memorial for the miners that worked there.  A more targeted approach to awarding funding was to begin in April to help new groups come forward for funding across the 4 villages. 


Monk Bretton:  The Burton Grange Craft Fair which was held in February half term had been well attended as well as 3 More Money in Your Pocket Events that had been held in the Area.  The Achievement Awards had taken place in the Town Hall Council Chamber which was a fantastic night for all that attended.  A bench that had been installed in the memorial gardens for the Yorkshire Regiment would be blessed on the 14 April 2023.


Royston:  It was reported that the same issues were arising of the same groups coming forward for funding and it was hoped that they could reach out to encourage new groups to come forward.  The Royston Gala would be held on 1 July 2023. 


Members were informed that the Sloppy Slippers event would be brought back in collaboration with the More Money In Your Pocket Events.  It was seen as a success in that people were asked to take their old slippers in to be exchanged to ensure they would not return to their worn out footwear, in turn preventing slips and falls and reducing accidents resulting in possible hospital visits.


RESOLVED that the notes from the Ward Alliances be received.
