Present: Scout, Stephen, Matti, Hannah, Tove, Gavin, Pomme, Swithun, Ila, Julie, Kata, Hannah
Too spicy according to frank, ila agrees. scout thinks there could be some
cheap and easy pasties to buy/make (AP)
Cut down on the spicy soups
Not evident enough that cafe is volunteer run
Matti wants to design new menu, hannah and tove do content (AP)
NATO welcoming party
Organisers would like to know if they could use hall/action room during events. [sensitive subject, hush hush] Scout will get more info from dudes and forward it ot FWG.
Milk has done a lot, Hannah too. There is lots of text. On wiki.
Regular induction days an idea. How frequent? Fortnightly. Would it be
compulsory prior to volunteering? Or recommended but there can be
exceptions. Don't want to stop people from volunteering.
For first shift, should be short one, during day and with someone else.
Stephen is working on interactive table top oracle things that will inform
people about the Forest.
Find out about what is legally reguired - ask Lynne and Emma. Health and
safety. (AP Scout, Hannah, Tove)
Ila wants to have a few people picking films, but still open to suggestions.
Run by EVS.
Stephen wonders if we can organise a few months in advance. Something to
think about. Would be good.
Swithun says that there shouldn't be too many people picking films. Person
in charge of film should be NM - easier to run night.
Make it easier for people to submit their own films (by post).
EVS should get tips when they NM, says Matti. People agree.
Could use another kitchen to make food. But would need to store large
quantities, or make things once a week. Nix asked Matti to bring this up.
Crafty Room (CR)
What is going to happen to Blue's stuff that is in the CR? Maybe it isn't
his. There are ideas for things to do with room.
Which WG does CR belong to? Action WG is not happening. Give it to AF!
Free shop (FS)
FS could be stored in CR. Would be easier to move to cafe once a week. But
don't want it spilling everywhere.
When it worked, it was on Sunday, people could only drop stuff off then.
Crap was collected by Shelter on Tuesday. But need more publicity and
information. Helpful to next people if you pack things away in an organised
Have timetable for CR. When bands want to store stuff, we will know if they
can use CR.
Stephen will make publicity (AP).
Tove and Julie on this.
Bands want to leave their stuff overnight. Take contact details. But there
is stuff that has been left here for ages. Need somewhere safe, but can't be
responsible for it. Use communication book to let next days's staff know.
List of equipment, description of people.
Would use CR. But this is full of other stuff. Ask Blue/Robin if we can
use/tidy this space.
Don't think that many bands will want to do this. But good to have procedure.
Ila will look into this and report back.
Asazi wants to make CD. This is a job for Forest Records. Stephen knows
something about this, but isn't telling.
Greetings from Cardiff, clarts.
