2 : 2 parts Engagement of an Architect The Board of Trustees wish to engage a local architect to work with children, young people and the staff in the centre to think creatively about the existing building to see whether it is possible to make better use of the existing floor space. The Board of Trustees need a set of outline drawings and a budget cost for the refurbishment to go to potential funders. To employ an architect was recognised in a recent business plan produced as a result of internal review. The business plan identified that a review of the fabric of the building was essential in terms of potential income generation. Front Entrance Door The front entrance was recently refurbished but the centre could not afford to make the door automated. The centre wish the make the new front door open automatically to make the door fully accessible to all users, so the door opens as someone approaches. 2,283 Total Cost 4, (Councillor June Lee) Have local architects been approached to do elements of the project on a pro-bono basis? If not, could this be looked at? The project was recognised as needed 3.3 Volunteer Training on Benefit Changes and Appeals Process Wear Valley Citizens Advice Bureau Volunteer Training on Benefit Changes and Appeals Process Four Clocks, 154A Newgate Street, Bishop Auckland DL14 7EH Wear Valley Citizens Advice Bureau requires funding to train its front line volunteers on the new welfare benefits system and how to support clients in the appeals process. The community is being hit very hard by the changes and the proposed changes to the benefit and support systems. Due to funding cuts and changes in legal aid entitlement residents will be left without any representation in the field of welfare benefits. The CAB have already seen clients who are in need of assistance becoming reliant on food parcel schemes etc and believe that the situation is likely to deteriorate further. The Bureau have volunteers who are willing to donate their time and energy free of charge to assist people at this time but need funding to train them to the level where they can go some way to supporting people undergoing emergency situations and the appeals process. This will not replace the services that have been and are going to be lost but it will make a positive difference to the lives of residents in the Bishop Auckland area. The funding will be used to ensure that volunteers have the necessary skills and support to deliver advice on the new benefits and how individuals maybe affected by the changes and how to prepare for those changes. 115 Total Cost (Cllr John Lethbridge)

3 What is the National Body doing to address the situation / how are they coping? It was noted that the project does need doing but this is not just a local problem, it should be joined up and a national approach should be taken On a local scale will it be best value? 3.4 St Joseph s School Community Leisure Group St Joseph s RCVA Primary School St Joseph s School Community Leisure Group St Joseph s School, Victoria Lane, Coundon The project has been set up for the children within the local community and school in order to provide them with leisure activities outside the classroom and in addition to their educational opportunities. There are lots of activities planned for children who would not otherwise get opportunities as there are few activities or clubs within the local area. The group plan to take the children on trips to places further a field such as visiting the historical town of York as requested by the children. The group also plan to run after school clubs for the children such as a film club, Thai Boxing and a cooking club again these ideas have came from the children. The school has ran a cooking club in the past through funding from the Food Trust, this has unfortunately ran out but the club was very successful. The children have said that they would like it to continue due to the new skills it gave them, the project also involved parents who learned to develop their cooking skills and they were taught about healthy eating. The activities will take place outside of school hours and are in addition to their educational experiences. The School Council have identified these to be the most urgent needs and through this money they can provide the children with enriched experiences as well as developing links with parents and the local community by getting them involved. 3,979 (Councillor Burn 1,990 and Councillor Taylor 1,989) 390 (School) Total Cost 4,369 It was suggested that the group get in touch with the Health Authority to see if they could add value to the project The group felt it would be advisable to ask the group to consider charging the children and young people even a minimal cost to ensure that the project is valued 3.5 Bishop Auckland Recreation Ground Project Durham County Council, Sport and Leisure Bishop Auckland Recreation Ground Project Northumbria House, Aykley Heads, Durham

4 Bishop Auckland Tennis and Bowling Clubs have been based within Bishop Auckland Recreation Ground for many years. Over the past few seasons the Bowling Club has experienced problems in keeping their Green irrigated. They have requested an automatic irrigation system and also replacement of the green boards which are in places, damaged and dangerous. The Tennis Club has asked for assistance in replacing 2 public courts with an overlay. This will remove undulations in the surface and provide courts that are LTA league standard. The courts are now 16 years old and have not had any major maintenance during this period. Both clubs have a shared priority regarding pavilion security. The pavilion has been broken into on several occasions. It is boarded up by the council each winter to deter thieves, however this process in itself is causing damage to the building. The clubs have requested installation of security shutters over 4 windows and 2 doors. NHB funding will be matched by S106 funds to provide adequate funding for the above works. The project will be managed on behalf of the clubs by Outdoor Sport and Leisure officers (part of DCC Sport and Leisure Services), including budgeting, planning and procurement. Whilst the projects aim to improve facilities for the clubs, in a wider sense they will benefit the community who share the park facilities. 23,935 Total Cost 30,935 7,000 ( 2k Cllr Zair, 5k Cllr Harrison) The Funding Group asked who were delivering the project and whether quotes had been obtained to ensure best value The Funding Group asked what the anticipated timescales for delivery were 3.6 Dene Valley One Stop Shop Lunch and Activity Club Dene Valley Community Partnership Dene Valley One Stop Shop Lunch and Activity club One Stop Shop, High St, Eldon Lane To provide a nutritious meal, social opportunities and various activities for the older generation one half day a week in order to prevent isolation.

The times will be reviewed subject to customer feedback. The club will have a leader/facilitator who will encourage the attendees to decide for themselves which activities they want to participate in and which speakers they wish to invite to their meetings. The leader will suggest various activities and topics for speakers. The group would also would like to appoint a small committee to drive this club forward to expand on the various activities offered and advise on what workshops and topics they would like further information on. The group will start by serving lunch either in the cafe or in one of the meeting rooms, this will be followed by a number of activities, some of which the group already own, to be decided by the attendees which may include Crafts; use of laptops, internet and skype; use of technology such as mobile phones, printers, digital cameras, etc; board games; Wii; Gentle exercise; various speakers; songs; playing musical instruments; watching films and musicals; having a natter with new friends.
