 Matters Arising
 
It was decided not to take part in the “It’s your neighbourhood scheme” this year.
If anyone wanted to attend the Communities day as a representative from the Tidy Group the date is the 9th June. Several members were unavailable that day .
Anne Nicholson volunteered to keep the schools informed.
There was a very nice article in the Church magazine highlighting the great work done by the children from the Meadows school.
Anne Shaw and Phil Shaw have volunteered to attend the Parish council meeting on Wednesday at 19.00. Phil is taking some photographs along that show the Tidy group’s work.
Lynda has taken a letter of thanks to Eternit for their generous donation.  
 
 Future Plans
 
The flowerbed opposite the church (next to the school) was in need of a total refurbishment. It was decided to create a working party to tackle this . The date decided was Monday 19th June from 14.00 hrs . This is a replacement in the gardening diary for the New Road bed.
During the next Tidy group meeting we are to decide which bulbs to plant in the Autumn.
The next Tidy group meeting is to be held on Monday 17th July instead of the 10th July.
 
Treasurer’s report;
 
The available funds are £886.30

PR and Sponsorship report
 
An article has gone to Anthea Bourne for inclusion in the Parish magazine along with some photographs.
The new Madeley Tidy Group web site is up and running and has been well received. The cost is £10.78 for 2 years.
 
Gardening

The tree planting on the 18th March was a success. The trees were quite small though.
The Long trough has been re planted. Thanks to everyone involved.
Anne Shaw has 175 Geranium plug plants that have been repotted ready for planting at a later date. They are to be planted in the Vicarage Lane bed and various troughs. A possible date is the 5th June.
Next gardening get together is at the Isaak Walton bed on the 22nd May.14.30
 
 Litter Pick

There was an excellent turn out on the 29th April for the latest litter pick.
It was also noted that there never seemed to be any litter outside the chip shop. It seemed right to thank them for their effort in keeping the area clean.
Special thanks to several residents who were spotted litter picking.
It appears that the contractors who are now cutting the grass cut up the litter rather than picking it up. This makes collecting the litter that much harder.
Anybody who has extra hours litter picking can they forward the details on to Anne asap . Thank you.
 
 Other Business.
