ST-ART was a registered charity providing quality arts and crafts activities for young people during the school holidays. ST-ART employed local artists to provide workshops for young people that took place in community centres, village halls, church halls and occasionally schools.
Artists were invited to submit proposals for workshops, which were then sent to partnering venues around North Lincolnshire. The venues then chose which activities they would like to try. ST-ART had now built a relationship with many organisations and wished to continue to offer workshops in these areas for young people.
Resolved – That £2,000 be offered in support of ST-ART’s 2010 programme of activity.
The Museum Service Forward Plan was agreed by Cabinet on 7 December 2006 (minute 622 refers) for national accreditation purposes.
The accreditation process required that progress be reviewed part way through the life of the plan, and formally reported to the Cabinet Member. This work was recently completed.
The Forward Plan had five key aims. Good progress was evident on four of the aims. Progress in taking forward capital projects had proven difficult. Further details were set out in the report and its appendix.
Resolved – (a) That the Museum Service Forward Plan progress report be noted, and (b) that a further progress report be presented for consideration in October 2010 in preparation for the development of the next Forward Plan 2012 – 2017.
Work needed to start in December 2009 in promoting the park for the 2010-11 season. To do this effectively the admission prices needed to be agreed so that they could be included in promotional material which was prepared for print in December 2009.
In making recommendations for the prices for the following season, the performance against income targets in the current year had been taken into account as well as market intelligence from across the sector and the results of the survey carried out in 2009.
The proposed 2010-11 prices were set out in the report along with the ‘early bird’ scheme which offered £1.00 reduction on all season tickets purchased before 1 June 2010
Resolved – (a) That the proposed admission prices for 2010-11 as set out in the report be approved, and (b) that the ‘early bird’ promotion scheme be agreed.
