From John Mason’s site:
…. “met with Parish Councillor Myra Weir last night at the Public Meeting and she confirmed that the three members of the public who agreed to act as Chair, Secretary and Treasurer have sent the initial funding cheque back to the Rural Community Council of Essex (RCCE). This signifies that they did not wish to proceed.
This means that the whole process must start again. Months of preparation and several public meetings have been wasted.”
