Numerous small problems on the estate were raised:-

 

  • Ivy Rait said that she and Paddy had attended Ray’s cremation on the previous day at Breakspear crematorium.
  • Ivy went on to say that the ladied of the sewing group were holding a small buffet on the 18th of December to celebrate Christmas and extended an invitation to members of HFTRA to attend
  • The window that was leaking in the hall had now been repaired, but another problem had arisen, one of the heaters in the hall could no longer be switched off using the wall switch, having to be turned off using the control on the heater itself.  John A looked at the switch, said that it felt hot and that the switch seemed to have been welded into the on position by the electricity jumping across the contacts in the switch. Ivy said that she would report it to the council.
  • The curtains in the hall were in a dirty condition at the bottom as the floor behind them was never swept when the hall was cleaned, this was pointed out to Bill Bearden who came into the hall, he said that he would pass on the committees concerns.
  • Also mentioned was the fact that there were two lights in the Hall which were out and had not yet been replaced, as well as the sink in the kitchen which had become blocked, John A looked at it, but thought the water was flowing away correctly.

Ivy said that she had not heard anything back from Maxine Henson about the matters raised at the previous TRA meetings that she had attended.

 

There being no other matters raised, Paddy reminded those present that the next meeting would be on Wednesday January 29th 2020 at 10:30am.

                        None Received    

 

The meeting commenced at 10:30am.

 

Paddy Lyne welcomed those attending the meeting and introduced Councillor Maxine Henson, who has been invited by Ivy Rait after expressing a wish to attend this meeting.

 

The minutes of the last meeting were read through and agreed by those present.

 

Numerous small problems on the estate were raised:-

 

  • Ivy Rait said that the police had been called to an incident involving drugs, saying that a group of people were sitting on the wall and dealing and smoking. It was suggested that a set of spikes be installed to stop this but Cllr Henson said that it was not possible due to safety concerns if someone fell onto them.

 

  • It was also suggested that the gate on the alley leading from the estate to Field End Road be locked to stop them using it to access the estate. Cllr Henson suggested that it was not feasible to close the alley off. It was suggested that a chicane be installed to at least prevent them from cycling through the alley.

 

  • It was stated that one of the flats on the front of the estate facing the bus stop has being occupied by squatters, with reports of people climbing into the flat through one of the windows.

 

  • Ivy said that the lights in the communal areas were coming on late leaving these areas in the dark for over an hour before they came on. (Bill the caretaker who was on site was asked about this and said that he would adjust the timer so that this did not happen again).

 

  • The window at the back of the hall leaks and a large puddle of water is left on the windowsill.

 

  • Ivy asked about the cutting back of the plants in the raised beds in front of the hall as they are now so high that it is difficult to see what is happening in the car park itself. Ivy went on to say that similarly the plants in the area of her block (containing 19) were getting overgrown and the plants themselves looked as if they had some kind of infection.

 

  • The hall was still not being cleaned properly.  The floor was usually dirty where it had not been swept especially under the curtains. This was pointed out to Bill who was in the hall at the time this was raised.
  • Ivy asked about an infrared heater that she had that was not working, asking if it was possible to have a replacement fitted saying that she had reported it to the council.
  • The lack of crossings was raised with Cllr Henson.
  • The leak in the toilet in the ladies has not occurred since John adjusted it.  John also checked the sink which was said to be leaking from the waste trap, but could not see any trace of a leak.
  • Cllr Henson asked if she could regularly attend the TRA meetings and this was agreed by those attending.

There being no other matters raised, Paddy reminded those present that the next meeting would be on Wednesday November 27th at 10:30am.

 

There being no other items raised the meeting closed at 11:30am
