 Rimington Memorial Institute

 

                 Having applied for and been awarded grants from  The Lancashire Enviromental Fund ,

                 The Harold and Alice Bridges Benevolent Fund and also The Duchy of Lancaster

                 Benevolent Fund The Institute management committee is moving forward with further

                 work . At the moment the main areas are as follows :-

 

                          Installation of acoustic panels in the roof space of the main hall .

                          The panels will be suspended parallel to the pitch of the roof some

                          75mm clear and they approximately 1.5 metres square 50 mm thick

                          in a textured grey finish that will complement the rest of the colour

                          scheme .These are intended to reduce reverberation and echo and

                          we are advised this will improve the acoustics of the hall particularly

                          when there is a social event such as the recent  " Stars in their eyes ".

                          the work is due to be completed by the 14th of March .

                          The system is similar to that installed in Grindleton's new Pavilion

                          which we understand has been successful.

 

                          Main hall lighting , the present " Industrial " fluorescent are to be

                          replaced with more efficient  L.E.D. Up-lighters and the wall mounted

                          spots will be replaced , again with L.E.D. units . This work will be

                          done during week commencing 23rd of March .

 

                          Following previous work in the main hall the remainder of the premises

                     are to be redecorated , this will start 21st of March

 

                    The kitchen units and equipment are to be upgraded and the room will

                          redecorated , this will start 28th of March                                                                                                                                                      Best regards , Bob Whittaker

RIMINGTON AND MIDDOP

PARISH COUNCIL


Dear fellow parishioner

As clerk to the Council it falls to my lot to try achieve enough interest in the Parish Council election on 7th May to make sure that the Council can function properly for the next three years. Please think seriously about serving the Parish in which you live to protect the best interests of all of your fellow residents. Please read the posters over page and think about serving

Basically you would be agreeing to attend one meeting every quarter, ( A legal requirement) with the odd extra one thrown in when something controversial drops on us. You would be consulted about every planning application for the Parish, though our success rate with objections with R V B C is not high! The Parish spends just over £4000 each year of your money and you would have input into that spend. You would have opportunity to influence the wider life of the Parish

It would be exaggerating the effectiveness of the Parish Council, which is non-political, to imply that Councillors have much power, but what little they have needs to be used fully, wisely and consistently which is why we need you to think about volunteering.

If you want to know more, or want the inevitable forms that have to be completed by 12th, of April, so you can volunteer, please contact me at any time. 01200 445554 or dtk.carrscroft@yahoo.com. Or perhaps you fancy being parish clerk.......

Regards

David
