Peter is going to see Morrissey’s about making the frames for the cottage windows


Peter & Jan looked at the two sheds on Ben Davison’s place, one is 16 foot 4 by 26 and the other is 14 foot by 24, they are both in good order. We would probably only require the smaller one, Jan is to talk to Ben about negotiating a price.


Moving of the German wagon is to be organised, Chris raised the concern that the wagon should not be moved until a secure and out of weather place can be found to store the wagon at the Cottage.


Jan saw Rod Dolly regarding painting of the cottage, Rod is willing to do it on a weekend if some volunteers are willing to go and help and we already have enough stain to do the job.
