Chris Lock due to commence work on notice board within the next fortnight.

Denise has talked to Nicki Barron who has expressed an interest in doing some drama workshop within Doxey.

Trustees Meeting

There was not enough trustees present therefore no decisions could be made but items were discussed.

Mikron will not be visiting Doxey this year but will be performing in Gnosall. A suggestion was put forward that a trip to see them perform there could be advertised in the Doxey Times.

Denise has not had the opportunity to contact Joan Harvey but will do so before the next meeting.

A general discussion then followed regarding getting the DCA back on an “even keel”. It was brought to the meetings attention that residents have reported that they have missed not having the Doxey Times; an issue is due out this month. No new people have approached the DCA expressing an interest to get involved. David is to talk with the owners of Aston Bank Farm to see if they are interested in advertising in the Doxey Times with the hope that it will encourage residents to make use of their local amenities.


No financial report available to be requested for next meeting.

John has received a letter regarding insurance for the DCA. It was unanimous agreed that the £238.50 renewal should be paid.


The AGM is taking place on Wednesday 15th June ’11. Iain is unable to present at the meeting but will talk with Neil Thomas to see if he would be available.


Iain gave a brief update regarding Play Space 4 Doxey. From a recent meeting the Borough Council has stipulated that the football field should be kept but Play Space 4 Doxey is pursuing further play facilities. A questioner is to be published in the next Doxey Times asking residents for their suggestions of what play facilities they would like to see within their community.
