A proposal to obtain a liquor licence for the Pavilion was previously put forward and approved by the full Council – Following further discussion it was recommended that should the Bowls Clubs wish to host events they will be allowed to apply for a Temporary Event Notice; however, the Council would not be responsible for obtaining a full Public Licence and the sale of alcohol outside those events will not be allowed. Bowls members may bring their own refreshments should they decide to do so.
A request from the bowls clubs to upgrade the floodlights has been received along with a quote of £3,617. There is no provision in the precept for this

The clubs will be advised to try an outside funding source.
