1. Apologies: None.

2. Minutes of meeting on 18th April were agreed and signed.

3. Matters Arising:

(i) PR circulated the minutes of the meeting between the Trustees and the Social Club on 5th May. They were approved to forward to Suzie Mulhall after recording the decision of the club chair that the VH would be fully reimbursed by the club for the loss of Discretionary Rate Relief.

(ii) PJ provided and update on the stream bank repair. Chris Smith of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust will be commissioned to conduct a survey of the site and provide us with a plan of action.

4. Matters for Consideration: None.

5. Correspondence: None

6. Treasurer's Report:
The Acting Treasurer, CG, presented the figures to 16th March as follows;
the two deposit accounts each contain a total £15035.72; there is £3745.24 in the current account and £1215.06 in the BACs payments account.

7. Building Progress:
The cooker hood is installed but ducting to outside is outstanding, as is the PAT testing. The recent failure to re-order oil highlights the need to install a level indicator. The options will be pursued. It was decided that it was now time to get the building signed-off by Building Control. DB is to check the Building Regulations for any steps we should make in preparation.

8. A.O.B.
The long term prospects for the Computer Club were discussed in the light of the decline in numbers from the initial 14 to the current 4/5. CG will seek clarification on Councillor Worsley's plans for a 'Wacton WiFi Hotspot'.

9. Date of next meeting – 20th June at 7.30pm.

Meeting concluded at 20.45
