Kennel Field Trust

At the meeting of the Kennel Field Trust committee on January 22nd it was agreed that, following the untimely deaths of two trustees, David Pointon and Graham Darlington (the Trust’s treasurer), to ask their respective wives, Pip Pointon and Penny Noake, to become trustees. They were happy to do so and attended the meeting.

It was also agreed to invite Lynda Denny to become a trustee with the added responsibility of taking over as treasurer. It was noted that Tim Freer, the new parish councillor, would automatically become a trustee if he so wished. The chairman, John Dinsdale, has informed him and he has accepted the invitation.

Deborah Millward and John asked Penny and Pip if they would like a tree each planted in the Kennel Field in memory of the service their husbands had given. Both Penny and Pip agreed and asked if Janet Thomson (who is a trustee) would also like a tree for her late husband. This proposal was unanimously approved. The offer has been accepted by Janet.
