Hydrotherapy project - John Holt to speak to with Dr Taiton to feed back that hospital is a good site for the pool. Peter Atkinson (Chair, West Berkshire Partnership) very receptive to the project needs to progress first and he will get it onto the west Berkshire partnership board. The project appears to be continuing on the right path but slowly. The Football club are now completely out of the picture. Funding would come from likely sources such as Greenham common trust; running costs are a question at the moment. Need people with clout to get behind it such as the partnership board. WBDA gives John full support.
