3. Minutes of last meeting: these had been circulated previously and were agreed. It was
decided that members would be given one week to comment on draft minutes prior to their
publication on the website as it was important to up-date the website as quickly as possible. If
necessary the minutes could be amended following the subsequent committee meeting.
4. Actions outstanding from previous meeting:
4.1 SCVS Bernard had downloaded the application to join SCVS and will submit it as soon as
4.2 Petition So far 600 signatures have been received. Heather will chase up the outstanding
ones with a view to getting them all back before the next meeting on 2 December.
4.3 Events at Community Centre There is not an up-to-date list of events in the Community
Centre but Christine Thomas the Secretary had read out a list over the phone to Heather who
had started contacting the various groups to check if they want publicity on our website. The
possibility of asking businesses for donations for such publicity was raised at the meeting but
deferred until the next for a decision because of the lengthy agenda.
4.4 Birchgrove Colts Heather had now written to the Secretaries of the Junior and Senior
Birchgrove Colts soccer teams to update them on progress on the Campaign to save the
Pavilion. She has explained that the BCA does not consider it appropriate to take over the
lease of the Pavilion and asked if they were interested in doing so - possibly in conjunction
with the cricket team.
4.5 Fund applications Matt and Ryl
