|To consider a motion by Cllr Key:
The Armed Forces Working Group would like to ask the Council for Marshalls Sports Field on 24th June 2023, hopefully without having to pay for the field. It was felt that by keeping the Event in one place it gives us a better chance to control the event and with time not on our side deliver what we want to. We may need some assistance from the Admin Officer later down the line but will keep this to a minimum. I so move.

Exclusion of public and press recommended due to the personal nature of the report.
