3. Matters Arising not on this agenda: Pete reported that Pete Worrell had given an interview about the Village Hall and the Website to the local paper but nothing had appeared yet. There will be articles in Village People and Sextons Wheel. A Facebook page has been created and a poster outside the hall has already prompted a response. Some corrections were suggested for the Website. Pete
4. Matters for consideration:
a. Film Night: Calvin and Pete had been let down by MIND. Pete to follow up. The Moulton show had attracted many people, they offered tea, coffee, cakes and an inexpensive bar in an interval half way through a very entertaining family film. There was a prize under a seat of tickets for the next show. Ticket price was £4 and they may have made a good profit from the 70 or so people who came. Tickets for the next show, in mid-November, are half sold. Pete may reconsider title of our first film, for showing end November or early December. Pete
b. Social Club: No further plans yet. Offers of help from Caroline Squires and Tony Rowson and some suggestions. Agreed to have small working party including Calvin, Vera and Sue plus Caroline and Tony. Sue
