Minutes of the Meeting of Maxton 21 held on Monday 20th February 2012
: Jimmy, Charlie, Elvira, Isobel, Eileen, Priscilla.

Apologies: Ann, Thomson, Douglas.

Previous Minutes: The minutes of the meeting of Tuesday 10th January 2012 were accepted as being an accurate record.

Treasurer’s Report: Isobel presented the monthly summary for the year to date. The balance shown is £8832.43, but with the account from Oliver (Joiner) for the work done in the kitchen having been presented the balance in fact is £4111.57 less. As the books are currently in the hands of the auditor in readiness for the AGM, the payment to Oliver will be slightly delayed. The sum in the account is therefore £4720.86.
