That the area served by the School be charged three-fourths of the interest and repayment of the loan (C. C. Minutes 1909–10). On 23 May 1910, it was resolved to increase the loan by making application to borrow £2,100 to be spread over 50 years because (1) the population consists largely of workers in the matting industry, which is one of the poorest industries in the county, (2) the parish has recently put in a new water scheme the cost of which is enhanced by the straggling nature of the village and (3) the parish is faced with a new sewerage scheme.
