Darcy suggested that railings be placed to make a walkway through the cottage to prevent people from entering rooms or touching things unnecessarily and hopefully this may prevent some thefts. Little gates can be made so that volunteers can still have access as required. Darcy is willing to cut the palings and Peter Ireland moved that this would be a good idea, seconded by Ian Gall CARRIED


Ian from the Police would like a letter to state who owns the cottage, he needs it for the court proceedings against the people that were caught for stealing, Darryl to contact Ian regarding this.
