19 November. Resolved that the site belonging to Captain
Bagot be purchased for a new School at a sum of £140. That application be made to the Local Government Board for sanction to
borrow the sum of £1,900 to be expended on the purchase of a site
and the erection of a new School thereon. That the area served by
the School be charged three-fourths of the interest and repayment
of the loan (C. C. Minutes 1909–10). On 23 May 1910, it was resolved
to increase the loan by making application to borrow £2,100 to be
spread over 50 years because (1) the population consists largely
of workers in the matting industry, which is one of the poorest industries in the county, (2) the parish has recently put in a new water
scheme the cost of which is enhanced by the straggling nature of the
village and (3) the parish is faced with a new sewerage scheme.
