The Sub-Committee considered and approved the minutes of the last meeting, held on 15 October 2018.

 

MATTERS ARISING

Gowns Replacement – The Town Clerk reported that she had contacted the Remembrancer regarding progress on the repair of the gowns at both the Central Criminal Court and the Magistrates’ Court as these repairs had not been undertaken in the Summer as previously reported.

 

The Sub-Committee requested that an update on progress be sent to all via email as soon as possible.

 

A Member clarified that the costs associated with this were in the region of £800 and £1,000 per gown.

 

A Member warned that the Magistrates would soon refuse to wear the gowns if the state of them continued to deteriorate which would result in the loss of centuries of City tradition here.

 

In response to a question, it was clarified that there were approximately 40 gowns in total that required repair.
