Tangmere Village Centre July News

Edited extracts taken from draft minutes of the Tangmere Village Centre Committee meeting held on 4th June 2019.

Cafe booking

A councillor asked for an update on minute 301-18 enquiring specifically, why, when the Committee had indicated it was receptive to taking the booking of the Stay & Play café,  the café had been unable to secure that booking and had gone elsewhere. The Clerk reported her understanding that there had been confusion about the rate to be charged and  that  a  lower  rate  had  been  initially  quoted  in  error.

Election Update

There were no nominations for the role of Vice-Chairman and the Committee decided that a the position was actually unnecessary.


Members received and approved the bank reconciliations for the Village Centre bank accounts noting that the bank balances recorded on the 31 May were:

  1. a) VC Business Reserve Account – £20,529.57
  2. b) VC Current Account – £740.96

Members  considered  expenditure and income on a monthly basis to 31 May 2019  and information relating to outstanding debtors. It was noted that both expenditure and income were within budget and there was a satisfactory excess of income over expenditure. It was noted that there were few outstanding invoices.

  • Resurfacing of the Village Centre car park project has been deferred until after the master planning process.
