Hall Report
Ceiling now reboarded but still to be skimmed when kitchen is done. Douglas Oliver to let Jimmy know when he wants to start work on the kitchen. Crockery etc will need to be moved out. Will work round Pilates times and should not cause too much inconvenience. Other events should be unaffected.
Litter Bins in Toilets. To be replaced as they are now inoperable. Jimmy to go to supplier and get 4 new ones.
Water Charges. Repeated demand for the payment of water charges when the Hall is exempted from them. Douglas trying to sort this out.

Web Site
New stats system complicated and confusing but all seems to be in order.

Neighbourhood Watch
Nothing to report.

HMS Maxton
Still trying to fix a date for Dave and Joe to visit.

Date of Next Meeting
Monday October 3rd in Maxton Village Hall at 7.30pm.
