1. Nothing has been done. Should we bother? See point 2.

2. FW came on Thursday. Fairly happy but no maintained lighting and alarm.
ACTION: Alex and electrician coming next week to sort out lighting.

1. So yes, we should, licence or no. We should schedule a meeting. JANE!

3. Tim fixed the computer, thank you thank you. Should we spend 50 quid to get a new hard disk? For a new internal 250 gig?
ACTION: We agree. Duncan will buy it.

5. Can Pogo come in and play the piano when no one is here? Yes, so long as he comes before closing, and tells the KMs in the day, so they can tell the vols it’s okay to give him the

ACTION: Keep an eye on them. Be stricter with people misbehaving. Bar if necessary.

12. Is it working financially? We don’t seem to be able to use it for our own needs. Maybe we should move to a subscription/pay by use system. Could be a pay by mile system?
ACTION: Gareth? Andrea? Can you work out some costs?

13. Pogo has sorted out the speakers and PA. He is going to spend

14. We don’t have many of them. And some of them play willie in-the-cup. Nights are the problem. KMs could encourage some of the good vols to work nights.
ACTION: We signed up for night shifts.

15. Duncan has meters for sockets that he will install. Don’t let randoms unplug them and insert them elsewhere.


Mikey has started setting up a youth music workshop. Do we want to give it to his dial-a-funk workshop? He needs money to print booklets to send to schools, to get funding and participants?
ACTION: we’re going to put it on hold for a bit.
