Matters arising from previous Minutes

161. Minute 129 (Title registration). The clerk reported that he had lodged the application which the Land Registry had acknowledged.
162. Cllr Laity mentioned the following:
- He had received a request for the use of the Folly Field by Cornwall People First. This was in relation to the Learning Disabilities Week in June. Cornwall People First would like to use the Folly Field on 20th Cllr Laity reported that this Organisation had its own Public Liability Insurance and will carry out its own Risk Assessment. Cllr Edmonds proposed that the Council agree to this request. This was seconded by Cllr Collins and carried unanimously.
- He and the Clerk had attended the West Penwith Community Network Panel meeting on 17thMay and that from this he had learnt that a pot of money was available for traffic schemes within the Network Area. He thought that, perhaps, the paining of lines on the cobbles in Market Place could be put forward as part of this. The clerk suggested that this might be something for which the Town Council might have to pay.

164. Cllr Hosking raised the following:
