AOB     1) Extension - grant application successful as recorded in Annual Report, with total £18k requested being agreed in principle, however this remains to be confirmed in March when the Council budgets are agreed.  2) SV has been trying to arrange computer course in Hall in Jan.  Original date and time altered and is currently contacting all those who had said they were interested to see if still want to go ahead, need to tell Lucinda Mahoney of Bridgewater College if have 10 by Tues or will not be held. 3) MR passed on query from Parish Council re any requests for funding from their next budget, due to existing generous agreement of PC to fund 10% of cost of extension (max £4k) committee did not wish to ask for any more. 4) MR gave apologies for next meeting. 5) JP suggested SV submit short article for magazine specifically about extension grant and future fundraising for this.


Had hoped to avoid a meeting in Dec as so close to this one but too many items to cover in short time before AGM therefore the next meeting will be on -




Monday 3rd December at 8pm.
