Apologies, Minutes and matters arising

All previous minutes were approved by the committee.

Treasurer's report

The previous discrepancy queried on 2013-12-11 was probably due to rounding of the actual figures, which are consistent.


The CHP recommended insurance (Tennyson Insurance) is good value, but still costs more than our current likely income.

We will not take out any insurance now. After the Hall refurbishment we will see if the Hall Insurance can cover activities of organisations based here.

Forthcoming events

Treasure hunt

PNJ and JC attended a recent CHP meeting and discussed the issues around the treasure hunt event with IR.

We concluded that we would certainly need certified insurance cover to hold the event as currently planned and that in any case it may be prudent to hold back on it for the time being.


DR has seen Brian. He only has 3 owls left as he has closed the sanctuary and sold the land. He is willing to bring these owls and perhaps enlist his colleagues as before.

A suitable date for an event based on the Village timetable might be 2014-05-31. We might combine this with some clay modelling using air-dryable clay for which we could charge £1 per lump.

Action: DR to check Brian's availability for this date and inform Martin for publicity.

Next meeting

Thursday 2014-04-10-19:00 BST at Kel Dowr. To be chaired by PNJ.

Action summary

  1. DR to confirm date for an Owl event with Brian.
  2. PNJ to publish competition description on the web site.
