Things to consider
Need to confirm that the gardening group (Highfield Industrial Estate) want any support and equipment from NRW as none of them attended the meeting. 
Where will the tools and equipment be stored and it will it be accessible to all groups? Do we need to purchase storage and where would it be situated?
Need to work out from the above suggestions where to start and how much is viable in the immediate future so we have a project up and running prior to the next stage of funding.
