General Business:

Members were asked to provide suitable wording for the Marnhull sign. "Jandowae Athlone Cottage Heritage Precinct by the creek. Contact Information Centre" was suggested. This would surround a photo of the cottage.

Our Bank Accounts are part of a package. Ruth is no longer receiving mail for the Business Group.

Old School — Peter reported that all the necessary paper work is in place for removal and relocation. Ian Wassell will disconnect the power with Michael Wood. Russell Hill's son has demolished the back of the building and he will take the cladding after relocation. Peter has taken the lining from the middle room. He is trying to get a plan of the building from the state archives. Peter sent an article to the local magazine.

The members then visited the building to view the inside and a working bee is to be held next week to clean out the inside and to check on the correct siting for the building.

The next meeting will be on the 12th August at 12 noon.
