Present: PB, PD, RW, JS, JC
1. The Maintenance Work Party on 28th October from 10am
Schedule of works external and internal was discussed and agreed. JC will circulate a note to the village. PD had already advised Stan Burden. He was thanked for his work on the churchyard gate.
Note PD will purchase buns & bacon for bacon butties for the workers.
2. Churchyard and maintenance
RW had visited A1 and found out that the daily cost of hiring an Allen power scythe cutter would be £71. It was agreed that we proceed with a day’s hire to test how effectively this would improve the churchyard.
3. New members
PD reported that Bob Panter, Jeanettte Mathews, Rollo de Souter had joined the Trust and Chris Scoble rejoined, having been an early member when resident in the village. Cynthia Shepherd’s payment was in process.
PD reported a total of £9,163.40 in the bank and £31.70 cash. PD’s proposal to use the £20 donated by Share & Care in Ann Barclay’s memory to repair the donation box in the porch was agreed. RW suggested a permanent board to commemorate past trustees be considered. This agreed for the future.
5. Date of Next Meeting
17 December at 6pm at East Coombe Farmhouse.
