August News from Tangmere Parish Council

Tangmere Military Aviation Museum, West Sussex

Edited extracts from the draft minutes of the Village Centre Committee Meeting held on 5 June 2018

Management Team reports

A query was raised as to whether Barnham Trojans under 13 football team really do require a full sized pitch; Cllr Birkett was to double-check and to clarify the team must hire the changing rooms – it is a package deal.

The accessible toilet was discussed and it was agreed to remove the rigid bar and assess further whether the provision was adequate.


  1. a) Tarmacing of the Village Centre car park – Cllr Irwin tabled plans for the resurfacing of the car park which had been submitted to Chichester District Council (CDC) for pre-application advice. The recommended material is a permeable paving product manufactured by SureSet ( although quotes for the work have yet to be sought.
  2. b) Replacement of the Village Centre front doors – ideally this project will link the youth hall/café and the foyer and create an air lock between the front doors and the foyer. A concept designer is required to develop the project.
  3. c) Village Fete (16 September 2018), Cllr Ware is leading this project and in his absence there was no further discussion.
  4. d) Village café – the pop-up café for the Royal Wedding had not been the success that had been hoped. More regular, routine opening should be pursued.
  5. e) Stage sound, lighting and projection – quotes received for the upgrade of lighting in the main hall were considered – total costs will be in the region of £25,000 and it was agreed to apply for New Homes Bonus/S106 funding for this project. An application is to be considered at the Finance Committee on 19 June 2018.
  6. f) Emptying of container – it is time to get rid of the contents of the container.

Painting of the main hall

A quotation received for the painting of the main hall and dado rail. It was agreed that a second quotation be sought and that the decision be delegated to the Management team to select the contractor for the work – subject to maximum expenditure to £1,250
