ST OSYTH & POINT CLEAR GRANT RECIPIENTS TO MARCH 31st 2013

At the meeting of the St Osyth Community Awards Panel held on April 9th, a list of grant recipients (as printed below) was circulated to the satisfaction of all members. St Osyth & Point Clear have now spent our first two years of funding, with only one application we made rejected by the Government officers managing the scheme. A further two years of funding depends upon the acceptance of our new plan, that Sonia Grantham our Chairman, has drawn up, following the responses from residents who completed the recent survey forms. This plan has now been accepted!

We set up a Community Awards section on the Parish Council web site, accessed at Community First Web Site , where any web site visitor can find all the background details of how we came to be awarding local grants from the Government Cabinet Office purse.
The panel thought we should now report publicly, what our grant recipients have done, or are doing, with their award money.

Best wishes from the panel to all recipients. 19/5/13

Dumont Luncheon Club ... £1,250.00
St. Osyth Cricket Club ... £496.00
1st St. Osyth Scout Group ... £2,500.00
St Osyth Allotment Association ... £600.00
Point Clear & St Osyth Disabled Persons' Club ... £600.00
St Osyth Preschool CIC ... £2,000.00
Point Clear Community Association ... £2,000.00
Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary C.I.C. ... £2,000.00
Grand Total ... £11,446.00


These reports containing both the local organisation’s original request for funding, followed by an update on how their grant has been spent are listed below

DUMONT LUNCHEON CLUB

Summary of the project Training for Volunteers and Client transport
To provide training in first aid and food hygiene for our Volunteers, thus providing a safer environment for our elderly Members where they can meet friends and neighbours and enjoy a home cooked meal.
Provide a bus to transport Members to and from weekly Luncheon Club.


OUTCOME
A few words below regarding the application of the grant money received by the Luncheon Club.
"The grant towards a bus to transport members from their homes to the Club is already in place and is enabling us to continue to offer this much appreciated weekly service. I am in the process of arranging training for First Aid for three volunteers and Food Hygiene for fourteen. These courses will be run by CVS Tendring".
Kind regards
Audrey Brown, Secretary - Dumont Luncheon Club.


ST. OSYTH CRICKET CLUB

Summary of the project The Club needs to purchase a new sightscreen. This is a vital piece of cricket equipment which allows the batsman to clearly see the cricket ball when it is bowled by a bowler. It is a statutory requirement of the leagues in which we play that sightscreens should be provided at both ends of the ground. It is particularly important that children and young people should be afforded this important safety facility.
The screen we wish to replace is over 10 years old. Its wooden structure is severely rotting and has become structurally unsound.
Unless it is quickly replaced we would be failing in our Duty of Care to all our members and visitors and be in contempt of the regulations of the leagues in which we play.


OUTCOME
“The Community Awards grant enabled St. Osyth Cricket Club to replace a damaged sightscreen with a brand new one. The sightscreen helps provide a safe environment for young cricketers to learn the game. Much of the club’s success in recent years is due to young players from the village who progressed through its youth section and it is passionate about giving young people every opportunity to play cricket.”


1ST ST. OSYTH SCOUT GROUP

Summary of the project
Repair or replace the roof of the Scout Hut. Replace the felt roof, soffit boards and guttering on the Scout Hut and to make good afterwards.


OUTCOME:
The New Scout Hut Roof & Doors. A poetic reply

Our roof had started leaking, and the Scout Hut was damp inside
But our funds were very low and we needed a funding guide

We wondered who to go to for funding for our group
When Sonia Grantham gave advice, CDF award funding to our Troup

The Social Club came up trumps and doubled the funding for the rest
Now our roof could be renewed and the Scout Hut start to look its best

The fascia's and gutters needed renewing with costs kept down low
So our Scout group leader did the work and now our gutters don’t overflow

One of our parents replaced our sign, and it can be seen far and wide
The 1st St Osyth Scout Group Hut is here and it’s warm and dry inside

With the funding previously given for renewing the fire exit doors
The Scout Hut repairs have been done and there are no drafts across our floors

So Thank you Thank you one and all who helped along the way
Our Scout Hut is a special place for all the Group to work and play.


ST OSYTH ALLOTMENT ASSOCIATION

Summary of the project Purchase of used shipping container to provide secure storage. To purchase a used shipping container and to site it on foundations. To enable the association to securely store "on site" equipment and commodities that the association requires and needs to support, facilitate and promote, the activities of the allotment gardens. On site secure storage will allow, on demand access to machinery and equipment, hither to, only persons owning or hiring equipment are able to enjoy the advantages of mechanised cultivation. Subsequent to the provision of secure storage the association will be able to acquire equipment which will be available to all allotmenteers. Bulk purchase of commodities will also be possible enabling the attendant cost savings to be realised. Also storage of equipment used for social gatherings can be held on site enabling the association to stage functions which promote involvement of and benefit to the wider community of St Osyth.

OUTCOME:
"The St Osyth Allotment Association received a grant of £600 the money was used to part fund (57%) of the purchase of a converted shipping container for use as secure on site storage and use as a base for onsite functions and meetings.
The association is grateful to the fund for this money, it has enabled us to improve our allotment facility.
Thank you.
Peter Tidy, Chairman S.O.A.A.”


POINT CLEAR & ST OSYTH DISABLED PERSONS' CLUB

Summary of the project Smiles All Round - The Club aims to get people out of their homes so they can meet others of their own age with similar difficulties. Loneliness is a bringer of mental illness, so having trips out during the year and at Christmas gives our members something to look forward to.
Long trips are not planned, rather good short ones to Harwich, Felixstowe, a Garden Centre and transport to our Christmas Party.


OUTCOME:
The grant money has been very helpful to our Club. The time period of winter months is not too good for our members and going out is an event. There are few places that fit the needs of the disabled in the winter.
With members using wheelchairs we held three outings including a Christmas Lunch trip out and a visit to Felixstowe.
The grant award has helped so much with comfortably transporting our members. Thank you all!
James M. Smith, Chairman.


ST OSYTH PRESCHOOL CIC

Summary of the project Our aim is to provide new nursery facilitates at the old Lakeside. We will have two fully functioning rooms for the ages 2-5. With an additional multi sensory room. We will offer full day-care 5 days a week 50 weeks of the year. We will also aim to run holiday clubs for school children and baby clinics for the community. We will open the new premises on the 10th September.
We will also be able to provide the children with a beautiful garden which will provide a safe and secure environment for all children to meet their developmental needs. We will have the opportunity to grow our own vegetables and have a wide range of fun equipment for all the children.
We will have ample parking in the car park at the front of the building which is enclosed by a picket fence running around the perimeter.


OUTCOME:
The renovation of the St Osyth Preschool was completed in September 2012. When we first opened our doors we had 52 children on our registers, we now have 73 children.
We can now offer full daycare from 8 until 6 and also offer childcare in the school holidays. We have employed 2 new members of staff and have been able to offer placements for students who wish to work in childcare and are currently studying.
We have lots of plans for the next couple of years to further improve our building and the service we offer to the village.


POINT CLEAR COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

Summary of the project Project Title: Dumont Hall Sound Deadening Summary of the Project: To provide sound deadening panels to improve the sound acoustics

OUTCOME:
Point Clear Community Association which operates Dumont Hall, received a Grant of £2000 from Community First towards the cost of Sound Deadening Panels.
These were installed by voluntary effort and resulted in considerable reduction in the ‘echo’ effect of the walls and ceiling.

The clubs using the Hall have commented in the considerable improvement in the sound quality of speech and music following this installation.
Following this work there has been an enquiry from a Dance Instructor to hold a Dance Class (as the sound in the hall is so much better).


GREENLAND GROVE ANIMAL SANCTUARY

Summary of the project Provide a visitors and staff toilet and sewerage to caretakers accommodation. To convert existing storage shed into a visitors / volunteers toilet and wash room plus outside sink and wash area. To run water pipe to new toilet and washroom plus install pipe work and inspection chambers to new septic tank and soak away system

OUTCOME:
We are delighted to have been given the grant towards our project for a toilet and washroom for visitors and volunteers, a sewage treatment center for this and the caretakers accommodation.
Due to wet weather conditions we have scheduled the work to start over the summer period. We will keep you informed of our progress.
Everyone who volunteers and visitors who come on our open days will really benefit from the grant thank you very much!
