Hall Report
The PRS Licence has been renewed, as has the Hall Insurance.
The heater in the anteroom will be removed and the wall reinstated.

Web Site
All of the update systems have been disabled, as the way they are programmed has, apparently, made them a security risk to the new server. The risk is not acceptable to the server operator, hence the blocking off of all access. This has left Maxton 21 with a site where neither the manager or the sponsors can add, delete or edit material within the update system.
After discussion it was agreed that the Hon Sec write to Bordernet for clarification of what they intend to do, as the present situation is totally unacceptable.

Neighbourhood Watch
Nothing to report.

HMS Maxton
Nothing to report

Date of Next Meeting
The next Meeting of Maxton 21 will be held in Maxton Village Hall on Tuesday 12th January 2010 at 7.30pm.
