Club Development - Gary Millar from GMCVO joined the meeting to share background to the community development environment and funding opportunities and the positive position the Club is in compared to many other community groups to develop its plans. Colin Taylor gave an update on the planned project to replace the decking and delays to the planned timing linked to needing to meet planning requirements for the ECB who have made a grant of £10,000 available for the project subject to meeting conditions. This is great news but has delayed the planned timing of the project. More details are set out in the Annual Report. Colin also reported on the recent failure of one of the hot water cylinders that would need to fixed before the Autumn. This has prompted the need for an urgent more strategic look at our heating systems to support decision making and likely significant investment in the near future.

Under Any Other Business a range of topics were discussed including increasing income earning opportunities from sponsorship, communication and engagement and finding ways to get more Members involved in working on specific areas and sharing ideas.
