1. Present: Peter Brachi, Pat Davies, Jonathon Stuart, Jan Chadaj, Richard Wilkin, apologies John Bickerton. Sec. Peter Johnson.
2. BBQ had been well supported and enjoyed. Thanks to those supplying BBQ’s. To permit chairs to be placed off paths and avoid a linear layout an area of grass needs to be cut shorter. Worth repeating for 2013.

4. Maintenance work day 28 October to be preceded by planning session 10.00 am 13 October to scope work and materials needed. Seal leaking windows main task. Clear gravel between butresses on South side if possible. (BBQ lunch for workers?). New hurdle for toilet screen on order form Alan Brown.
