A letter was received from Mr. B. Crannes on behalf of 20 children asking for goal-posts to be erected on the recreation ground. Mr. Sheridan agreed to make another gift to the children, and the Council thanked him for this another instance of his beneficence, and gave permission for the posts to be erected.

Mr. Sheridan also requested the Clerk to order 14 specimen lime trees at his expense and to have them planted on the ground.
