D. Jones presid ing. A sub-committee reported that at present the Brecon-road Hospital grounds were not suitable for a recreation ground for children. They re- commended that steps be takent9 acquire the freehold of the site.—This was agreed to.— Coun. Pedler asked the reason why the ground was not suitable for recreation grounds.—Mr. Biddle (the deputy town clerk) said the walls were in a dilapidated condition. The hospital was now used as a soup kitchen, and the sub- committee thought if children got into .the grounds, furtfiar damage would bo done. Len- der the lease, the Council had to keep the building in repair, and if they acquired the freehold, the hospital coidd be pulled down, and the grounds laid out. A sub-committee recommended that £2 worth of flower se^.d-s be purchased for Thomastown Recreation Ground, and it was stated that ten- ders had been asked for.—Coun. Dan Thomas asked if it was truo that the order had been given to a firm outside the Borough. — The Deputy Town Clerk said that tenders were ask- ed for from local as Well as outside florists.— The report was adopted. A letter was read from the Grapho-Jackson Concert Party, Barnsley. asking whether the Committee would allow them to have a plot of land at Cyrarthfa Park, near the pond, during the summer months, to give al fresco con- certs. Several inland towns had fiven permis- sion for similar concerts. They would pay the Corporation either 10 per cent. of the total takings, or £60 for the season, and they would charge one penny each or twopence for chairs. —The letter was referred to tho Parks Sub- committee. Deputy Town Clerk said tho Band Com- mittee had asked him to mention the matter of allowing the Cyfarthfa Municipal Band to give concerts at the Cyfarthfa and other parks on Sunday nights during the summer, after the churches had closed. — Coun. Dan Thomas moved that permission b9 given. At night, he said, the streets were considerable overcrowd- ed, some disgraceful scenes were witnessed, and people would be able to clear out of the town and enjoy the fresh air and the music.—Aid. Enoch Morrell seconded the resolution, which was carried.—Coun. J. Davies (Cyfarthfa) said he was not in favour of concerts on Sunday nights.—Coun. Thomas Williams: It is better than a prize fight.
