Apologies: Don. Present: Calvin, Vera, Pete, Sue, Bob
2. Minutes of meeting on 16th February: were agreed and signed
3. Matters arising
Film Night: Love Punch was enjoyed by about 20 people therefore
shown at a loss of about £60. Peter has produced a report
noting various ways to hire film and equipment; all require
attendance of over 30 people. Buying our own projector would
cost several hundred pounds. Forming a film club would require
commitment and agreement over films. The blackout may not be
adequate for summer months but experiment using black plastic
might be tried for an afternoon show for children
Acoustics: Current quote received £1400 to visit and advise
only. Other firms to be approached.
4. Matters for Consideration: The Water Bill has been received.
To consider trying a meter now water not heavily used
5. Correspondence: None
6. Treasurer's Report: The two deposit accounts contain a total
of about £30,053; there is £3611 in the current
account and £164 receiving BACs payments account. £900
will be needed for the CDM payment
7. Building Progress: Dado Rail has been finished. The next
step is building the Store Room after removing the old shed.
The contents will need a home. A drawing is required of all
the services for building control – Don will do this.
In due course a pressure test will have to be done before the
building is signed off but there is no haste for that.

residents in the early autumn to ask what events people want.
