Matters Arising:

A member of the society e-mailed other members regarding the application of anti-vandal paint to the fence at the Boscombe Entrance.  This resulted in several complaints regarding who sends e-mails to members; please e-mail a member of the committee and not all members with any queries.  Thank you.

This e-mail resulted in a decision being made not to apply the paint.


Rosedale Road Report:

The leak has been fixed, however we have received a water bill for £423.66, which Clive is going to challenge, as the water was turned off October – April. The water meter has been replaced. Please note that according to your agreements, sprinklers are not to be used on site.

It was decided that as we are the only site not paying for delivery of manure, we will pay the driver £20 per load.  Alan has not seen the plot holder of 11N yet regarding the fence. The manure tractor has difficulty in reaching Boscombe end of the site because of this..


Bull Meadow Report:

Manure was delivered but is going fast!  Driver paid.  Water leak has been fixed.  Bull Meadow water bill was for £50.68.  Crushed concrete has been put into the dip by the entrance thanks to Doug Noon. The new notice board has been erected


Treasurers Report:

Balance £3,455.82.  Raffle raised £15.00.
