Minutes of the meeting held on 27th Nov 2017 were accepted and signed by the Chairman.
Car Park Lining: Still ongoing and nothing to update. It was suggested later in the meeting that every user group is written to to see if they would contribute to the re-lining of the car park. DI recommended trying WSCC. JL to continue investigating
MW Enquired as to why the line marking had been put back. Part of reason was because user groups had not been written to as yet. Also centre carpets where deem to be a higher priority. AT to meet a company regards renewal of carpets. Ongoing
Access System: Camera in porch replaced. JL said not to worry about the camera near the defibrillator at the moment. With regards to grants for the system this is still ongoing.
Drones on the field: No update from DL or JS. JL to write to Aldingbourne Parish Council for correct definition of drones and other aircraft to put on to signage for the field. It was noted that there was a possible change in the law for drones. Trustees took it upon themselves and voted for “no flying of drones” within the field as we have a similar ruling for model aircraft. SK to look at signage for above.
AT to contact Parish Council to discuss a joint working party with other halls in the area ongoing
ACSC Licensing: DF reported that they are still waiting on the council to respond to them. It was suggested Personal licenses for some bar staff/personnel. ongoing
Radiators: These have new valves, new thermostats, one in main hall is still leaking and it has been noted that the water pressure in the hot water tap can be inconsistent so this may need looking at too. ongoing
Carpets: DF gave update. HH is still getting quotes together. AT suggested putting Car Park lining on hold and we focus on carpets inside. AT has suggested that he can also obtain some quotes and work together with DF And HH. ongoing
Phones in the centre: These are no longer ringing or making outside phone calls so will be replaced. DF to buy these. ongoing
Alan Johnson suggested that a new bench seat is needed and that he can fix this for us and this was agreed to. Alan looked onto this costs would be around £40. However, as we have a bench upstairs which could be used for repairs for the time being, it was suggested that we look into composite benchers as sturdier. AS to look into costs.
Path edges getting over run with grass. Needs cutting back. Working party to be sort.
Nothing to report

Sub committees to be set up. So they could work together before the meetings to make it easier to deliver information back to the Trustees as a whole. Also relieve the pressure on JL as most of work seems be with him.
Gritting of the car parks. We have a full bin of grit outside the front entrance to the centre which can be used. A shovel is to be sort for spreading. We will be reliant on the trustees to spreads the grit if required.
