Hall Report:
Toilet Repair: Douglas reported that the cistern in the Disabled Toilet has been serviced and is now functioning properly.
Hall Refurbishment: Douglas has received an estimate for the complete repainting of the Hall but there is no way that the costs of a total repaint can be funded at present. It was decided that costing for a limited area be sought. Repainting of the toilets, vestibule and the walls in the newer part of the Hall might be affordable at present. It was agreed that an application to CBAVH for funding be made (up to £1500) as part of the costs, depending on the estimates received. Douglas, Jimmy and Charlie to act on behalf of the Committee in forwarding any grant applications.

Any Other Business:
