We have a new auditor on the same terms, Dick Mead, who has experience with not-for-profit organisations.  Our total funds are approximately £80k, of which £33k is in a restricted fund.

Kay McGinty has left BSL since the meeting and her deputy Rachel Lemar has filled her position, including SLO.  Other help will be required.


  1. BCSCT Bar at start of 2016/17 and the near future

This season we will have use of a room in the Community Area.  Directions will be available at our next meeting.  We do not yet know if we can use the balcony.  The lift and a bar are being installed in our old Supporters Bar in anticipation of our permanent move there.  Jon has received a cool initial response to his draft agreement.  We require access on matchdays and non-matchdays, security of tenure and funds refunded if for any reason we are expelled from the area.  The Club will not sign a lease but is considering a service level agreement.  Jon [action] will draft a response
