General Business

Jan informed the meeting that a team of painters had been working at the pool and they were being paid with flood money.  Jan is to investigate this project with Caroline Fisher at the Council to see if our heritage precinct would be eligible for any assistance from this source.  The ramps and log both need oiling.

Voting on the future of the oven – A secret ballot was conducted which resulted in a unanimous decision to demolish the baker’s oven.  Heather is to ring Ed Hoffman to arrange for the Council to undertake this work.

Signage – It was decided that we would commemorate the old oven with a pictorial display of its history.  This will be placed in a prominent position - possibly in the old school.  The other signs will be erected on each individual building. 

Ros is to write a letter for the magazine.  The old dray still has to be moved to our site.

Jan reported on Daryl’s recovery from his recent operation.  Jan had sent a get well card on our behalf. 

The meeting closed at 8.35pm.
