Updated: May 10

Present: Kathy Head (Chairman), Catherine Bacon (Secretary), Derek Phoenix (Treasurer), Mary Cooper, Sue Loder Vagg, Ana Collingridge

1. Welcome by Kathy; Apologies: None

2. Minutes of the last meeting read and approved.

3. Matters arising:

Window Display in LIC from 16th November: Discussion on best position of screen for slide show, Diane to be requested to place when restrictions permit. Display board, table with cups and our Christmas cards etc already in situ. Display to run until end of November, could be longer which would be spirit booster to passers-by, but agreed not too long so not stale. Ana drew attention to importance of local criticism and negativity of non-essential opening and activities. Kathy pointed out garden centres are permitted to open, therefore our hyacinth bulb sale at Henhayes is ok and also agreed with Hannah (market); requested Ana to make mentions on Headlines & Topics. Ana will take care with wording as she sees fit.

Crewkerne Business Group: Kathy participated for 5 minutes on a group Zoom meeting with representatives for approx.20 groups, and stressed our need for volunteers. Representatives of kids’ groups seemed keen on educational aspect so we’ll move forward on this in Spring. Kathy also informed group about hanging baskets and indicated there would be a cost. Catherine said if the Council awards the grant requested, a contribution could be made eg to Bilby’s. Kathy considered the meeting a good opportunity to introduce CiB to the group, especially as some work from home, and she will maybe participate again next Spring.
