6. Mary Watney Trust: 2 members of the public came to explain the proposal and ask whether in principal the Parish Council will take over two positions on the Trust of the board. 50 years ago the Trust leased the land to the village hall. The village hall then subleased to develop a village shop. Village Hall lease ends 2021. Shop lease ends May 2020. Shop now needs a longer lease to develop the property. Village Hall has been charging a greater rent to the shop which they have now reduced to a peppercorn rent.
Now looking for a different system that will last for another 50 years, and wanting a responsible body to take over two positions – not named individuals. Cllr Butcher recommended that we check the legalities. The Hall and the shop will cover the cost of the renewal of the leases.
The Parish Council requested time to consider the implications of the proposal and to inform the councillors not present.
