DRAFT Minutes
Present: Korehan Dora (KD) Chair, Reg Wickings (RW) Treasurer,
Heather Mallinder (HM) Minute Secretary, Martin Spatcher (MS)
John Sissons (JS), Simon Harth (SH)
Apologies: Antoni Pogorzelski (AP) & Saeed Kanuga (SK)

1. Chair’s Opening Remarks
The Chair welcomed Board Members and thanked them for
attending. He informed the group that he’d received apologies from
AP and SK.
KD wished to extend a big thank you to all those who contributed to
the Bonfire Night celebrations and light show. The whole event went
very well and was further enhanced by surrounding firework
displays. Many thanks to Francoise for the beetroot soup and
everyone who brought the delicious food for us to share.
The lights were seen as a good investment as they can be used for many future events.
2. Minutes of Meeting 17 th October 2022
The Minutes were agreed as a true and accurate record of the
meeting.
Matters Arising
KD wished to add to the minutes a belated thanks to Nigel Austen for
replacing the lavatory bowl in the ladies. It has been much
appreciated.
Action Points Outstanding
a) Repair to fence adjacent to plot 72
Agreed: Work remains outstanding. ‚Äď SK
b) AGM Update
The Chair thanked SH for the research he had undertaken to clarify
the AGM process now that we are a Company Limited by Guarantee.
SH advised the Board that the process is quite straight forward.
According to the Articles of Association we need to set a date ASAP
in the New Year and then annually thereafter. Currently we have an
agreed number of members able to be on the Board at any one time.
If more plot holders are nominated to join that would exceed the
permitted number, we would need to hold an election.
There is also a rule that only one person per household can serve on the board.
If plot holders wanted to change this the Articles can be amended at the AGM.
The AGM will need careful planning and as such a meeting has been
set for Sunday 27 November @ 10.30am in the clubhouse.
All Board Members are required to attend.
We will also chart a calendar of events or the year 2023 to present at the AGM.
c) First Aid training
KD sent a Thank You card to Vicky for running the training day. AP
told HM she was delighted to receive it.
d) Boundary Wall Fairlawn Path
SK is in the process of obtaining a quote for the works.
KD & SK attended the BALGAF meeting last week.
KD was very disappointed that apart from SK and HM there was no response to
his request to attend from the Board WhatsApp.
They raised the issue of the boundary wall at the BALGAF meeting as there was
the potential that these repairs would be extremely expensive.
They were very interested to learn from one Chair attending that
there is a one-off grant available for such a repair as long as there is
an element of community involvement with our site. Given we have the Hertogs
community group and Drumbeat on site it’s likely we could tick that box.
There is an award of up to £10,000 available and one site arranged for people
sentenced to Community Service to carry out the work involved free of charge.
There is also one plot holder on our site who is also a fund raiser.
It would be interesting to talk to her about this scheme, and apparently
ideverde have funds available to allotment sites.
Agreed: SK to obtain a quote for the works required. HM to continue
to pursue responsibility with L.B. of Bromley and discuss funding with
Ian Wright from ideverde. KD to speak to Alex re: grant opportunities.
e) Charity Calendar 2023
The calendars are now in the office. As the quality of the print is not perfect
Emma has donated them entirely to the site which means all the money raised
will go to charity. KD emailed Emma to thank her for producing them and
donating them to the site.
Agreed: The calendars will be sold on a ‚Äėpay what you can‚Äô , first come first
served basis.
The charity that has been chosen from the ones put forward at the open day
is the Trussell Trust (they run our local foodbanks).
There is also £250 from the open day gate money to be added to it.
f) Bonfire Night Lights Show
A lot of work went into setting up the event which was pretty amazing,
very enjoyable and appreciated by a lot of plot holders.
The feedback on the WhatsApp group was very positive.
Many thanks to KD for setting up the clubhouse and all those who brought the
delicious food for us to share.
A big thank you to the Lighting ‚Äėcrew‚Äô who worked hard over several days
to set up the light show and take it down again, particularly Janet and Zac
who were tireless in their efforts, and a special commendation for the
indomitable bonfire builders who despite days of pouring rain gave us all a blazing fire.
Also, thanks to our surrounding neighbours who shared their firework displays
with us.
Let’s do it all again next year.
Agreed: Photos and videos of this event and any from the Autumn open day
to go up on the webpage. Please send what you have to KD.
g) Dates for the Year.
The list of dates for the year will be drafted at the AGM planning meeting
on 27 th November.
It was suggested that a quarterly newsletter to all plot holders would
keep them informed about what’s going on and how they could get
involved.
SH confirmed this is under development.
3. Secretary’s Report
HM sent a written report to the Board for the meeting due to be held on
14 th November.
A truncated agenda planning meeting was held on 7 th November.
KHLG Ltd Management Tools
The provision of 3 data sticks with current KHLG Ltd data for the Board’s PCs
as part of the emergency recovery plan is still outstanding as more work is needed.There was a discussion regarding the storage of the data in the cloud.
It was decided that the data stick was the preferable option for now. To be completed
ASAP – RW

A new date for the AGM to be set at the planning meeting on 27 th November.
Letters/ Communications
A Rota for member presence on site from 10.00am to 1.00pm
on Sundays is outstanding. ‚Äď KD

John & Rita‚Äôs have vacated Plots 86 & 87 ‚Äď SK
Vic and Barbara’s plot is awaiting transfer to Trevor. SK will need to write to Trevor to
relinquish his existing plots 59a and 59b in writing before he can have plot 60a.
All plots are in very good condition at present.
SH advised that Ukie Chris who has an immaculate plot wishes to swap to
Ninas plot 16. It was suggested that plot 45b was an option.
This needs to be sorted. – SK
A tenant has signed the tenancy agreement but crossed out the paragraph relating
to limited liability as unnecessary. We need to take advice. RW

KD questioned the location of the two payments he made in the
Treasurers report. There was a card payment of £37.36 and £170.00
cash totalling £207.36. The Treasurer explained why the two transactions appeared
in different accounts, one being a credit card payment and the other a bank
transfer into the wrong account and agreed to add a description to the £170 to make
it clear it was a shop transaction.
6. Site Manager’s Report.
As there has been little activity this month MS has not produced a
written report. There were no plot inspections as they resume in the Spring.

he needs access to the beekeepers shed before he can complete. He will then
address the winery lights before he looks at the clubhouse.

members to sign. They will be sorely missed given the amount of work they have
contributed to the site over the years.

Apologies: None

1. Chair’s Opening Remarks: 
The Chair welcomed Board Members and thanked them for attending. Unfortunately, there had been a long delay since the last meeting on the 8 th August due to the sudden death of HM The Queen Elizabeth II and a Board member contracting Covid.
It gave him much pleasure to welcome SH to the Board as a new member and thanked him for joining us. He asked AP to pass on the thanks from the Board to Vicky for an outstandingly successful first aid training day that was very well attended and enjoyed by all. Vicky has volunteered to arrange another day should numbers warrant it.
He suggested sending a Thank you card to her was the least we could do.
KD also wished to thank all members and volunteers that were involved in the Autumn Open Day this year which was much appreciated and enjoyed by the visitors.

2. Minutes of Meeting 8 th August 2022
The Minutes were agreed as a true and accurate record of the meeting.

Matters Arising
There were no matters arising.

Action Points Outstanding
a) Repair to fence adjacent to plot 72
Agreed: Work remains outstanding. ‚Äď SK

b) AGM 16 th October
The AGM was cancelled as there was no time in the interim for the Board to prepare properly for it. It has now been clarified that all plot holders that have paid their rent can participate in the AGM as they do not have to be registered with Companies House. However, unless they have signed and returned the new tenancy agreement they cannot vote. There are still a few issues that need to be resolved, SH will look at the new lease with Bromley on the website and request a copy of the memorandum of association from Companies House to compare with our current procedure. He will highlight any discrepancies and meet with RW in the first instance to discuss his findings.
Once there is clarification new date will then be set. RW believes it needs to be before the end of the year.

c) First Aid training
This was an outstanding success. Many thanks to Vicky and AP for arranging it. Vicky has volunteered to hold another session if there is sufficient interest.

d) Boundary Wall Fairlawn Path The wall is leaning dangerously into the site and needs attention. It was agreed that SK would arrange for an estimate for the remedial works to replace the leaning section with a chain fence. HM will chase Ian Wright from idverde and Cllr Kathy Bance who have agreed to follow up the matter with Bromley Council to clarify who is responsible. RW is convinced it will be KHLG.
Agreed: HM to continue to pursue with Bromley.

e) Publication of Calendar 2023
HM to obtain details of the company used by her daughter and liaise¬†with KD to put together a draft depending on cost. ‚Äď HM /KD

f) 5 th November Light Trail /Bonfire Night The lights have been purchased and held securely in the office. HM/AP and Ross will test the solar lights to endure they are fully charged, then put together a dummy run prior to the night. It is envisaged we could start at 5.30pm to 6.00pm as it should be dark by then.

MS will arrange for the bonfire to be lit during the day and burn any residue wood in the evening. The car park will be closed
from 2 nd 
November when plot holders can bring the wood down for burning.
Can everyone ensure it is only wood please and no other material.

KD will ask Francoise if she would kindly produce her delicious pumpkin soup again this year as it is always such a hit with plot holders attending. It was suggested that as there were over 70 attending last year plot holders should be asked to provide dishes as they do at the Christmas meal, as this appears to work well.
Agreed: SH to post a request on WhatsApp and send email to plot holders.

g) Autumn Open Day 4 th September The event went well and although not as well attended as the May open day it was enjoyed
by everyone who came. Many thanks to all 
the volunteers that stepped up and contributed to the event.
The 
joint event held with the beekeepers is always much appreciated.
Given the amount of planning required and the great deal of work involved in the Spring Open Day it was Agreed: to set the date well in advance and hold the planning meeting in February.
21 st May 2023 is the provisional date for the event.
A date for the 
planning meeting is required. AP produced a very good template for holding these events which will be used as guide for the next planning meeting. Each Board member must take on an area of responsibility and organise that particular aspect of the event, including volunteers.
It was suggested that a quarterly newsletter to all plot holders would keep them informed about what’s going on and how they could get involved. Perhaps resurrect Plotting Together?
HM to post a message of WhatsApp asking for volunteers with appropriate communication skills to get involved.

3. Secretary’s Report
HM sent a written report to the Board for the meeting due to be held on 10 th October. The agenda planning meeting was held on Monday 3 rd October between HM, KD, RW

KHLG Ltd Management Tools
The provision of 3 data sticks with current KHLG Ltd data for the Board’s PCs as part of the emergency recovery plan is still
outstanding as more work is needed.

Facilitating the AGM for 2022
A new date to be set once clarification has been obtained from SH.

Letters/ Communications
Ôā∑ A plot holder expressing an interest in joining the Board. To be¬†spoken to by KD/ RW
Ôā∑ Rota for member presence on site from 10.00am to 1.00pm on¬†Sundays is required.
Ôā∑ A plot holder has¬† asked the Board to be taken off the distribution list¬†for emails.
RW will do so. KD will enquire how the plot holder 
would like to be contacted in future.

Ôā∑ KD has given the letter personally to the plot holder whose son
was involved in the illegal BBQ and made it clear that he cannot attend the site without the father being present.

Ôā∑ KD to meet with Jerry and Francoise tomorrow to take¬†possession of an oak bench and umbrella from Jerry‚Äôs brother

who died recently. Our condolences to Jerry and family.

Current Communication Activity
HM will maintain communication with Ian Wright from idverde and Cllr Kathy Bance until the issue of the wall is resolved.

A plot holder has indicated an interest in joining the Board. However, following a discussion with KD and RW it appears he is not available on site at weekends. Given this is the busiest time for members for requests to loan out mowers etc or opening up the shop it was agreed that there may be a more suitable role for him.
We are in need of a volunteer co-ordinator which is non-executive role, as well as a Social Media guru.

4. Treasurer’s Report
The Board Agreed: all monies to be transferred to one account.

Account balances as of

No.1 A/C £ 1,271.82

No.2 A/C £ 962.53

KHLG Ltd A/C £ 12,934.03

Savings A/C £ 0.9

Cash 1:2:3 £ 2,247.53 Total £ 16,406.51

We are currently operating with a £4,389 deficit for the year ending
December 2021. We were in a fairly good position financially until

Covid -19 struck. Since then, we have lost two Spring Open Days
where we make most of the money to keep the site functioning. We¬†have not been able to raise the rents for three years as we need the¬†rent level to be agreed at an AGM. Our assets are the stock and¬†machinery plus the cash in the Bank. ‚Äď RW

5. Shop Report
KD has banked £140 from shop takings in August. The till now has plenty of change. The stock levels are healthy apart from ground cover. There is a need to make up an order

6. Site Manager’s Report.
As there has been little activity this month MS has not produced a written report.
There were no plot inspections this month. To be 
resumed in the Spring.

As the car park will be closed from 2 nd November, we need to advise plot holders.
HM to post on WhatsApp and produce a notice for the board.

External rewiring update
Ross attended this part of the meeting to give a verbal update on progress.
He needs to complete the repair to the hydraulic press in the winery and upgrade the lighting to Florissant strips. He is concerned about the amount of energy wasted in the clubhouse, given the rapidly rising cost and high consumption. The lighting needs to be changed to LED lighting as a matter of urgency with the hot water tank put on a timer. Someone is using the heating on a regular basis, which is ramping up energy consumption. Ross to look at it this weekend.
The 
smoke alarm is disconnected and needs a heat alarm as a replacement, plus the need to renew the external lights.

The lavatory block needs a PIR for automatic turn off when left on. There is a temporary fix on the earth wire to the Ladies

There is some old wiring to the beekeeper’s area. Ross needs access to properly examine it.

7. Lettings Manager’s Report
SK advised the meeting that two plots had been let in August. The two large plots are in need of a lot of work before they are lettable. One of the sheds has an asbestos roof. SK will look at safely removing it. KD has started to demolish another shed that was falling down, but needs the tractor tyre repaired to move it to the car park.
Ross 
has ordered a replacement.
There are currently another 6 plots vacant but in need of tidying.14a /16 /17b / 63b/ 68b / 89.
MS advised that 3 more will shortly become available that are in good condition at the moment.

8. Health & Safety Issues AP asked if the site insurance covered plot holders that haven’t signed the tenancy agreement yet? RW replied that it did as long as they have paid the rent. It also covers all visitors to the site.
AP wanted to remind members when loaning out equipment to check that the plot holder actually has the PPE with them to be able to truthfully sign the book. He stressed that plot holders should have leg coverings i.e. trousers not shorts, when using all machinery including mowers.
AP was thinking how we could help vulnerable plot holders over the winter period who may not be able to heat their property. KD

commended him for the thought. To be discussed at the next meeting. -All

Covid ‚Äď 19
We are reminding all plot holders to continue to exercise care in
enclosed places as Covid ‚Äď 19 variants are increasing rapidly.

9. A.O.B
KD asked RW if the database had been amended as requested by Viv Lund. It has been done. -RW

Sissons (JS), Antoni Pogozelski (AP)
Apologies: Saeed Kanuga (SK)
1. Chair’s Opening Remarks
The Chair welcomed Board Members and thanked them for attending. He wished to thank everyone that had contributed to the
very successful spring open day on behalf of the Board. There were too many to name individually but you know who you are. From those that helped to put up tents to those who ran a stall or event, thank you. It was truly an amazing feat after having the site closed for two years, it proves we still can do it. The attendance was extremely good thanks to the wide coverage on social networks.
2. Minutes of Meeting 9 th May 2022
The Minutes were agreed as a true and accurate record of the meeting.
Matters Arising
There were no matters arising.
Action Points Outstanding
a) Repair to fence adjacent to plot 72
Agreed: Work remains outstanding. ‚Äď SK

b) Date for Tenancy Agreement signing
The tenancy agreements have been sent out to all plot holders that haven’t yet signed the new one, with a 14 day return deadline. The weed notices will be sent out tomorrow. Agreed: MS to put out a box in the clubroom for returned agreements to be collected.
c) First Aid training
We need to know the number of plot holders interested in the training for use of the defibrillator and other practical first aid
procedures. A further email will be sent to all plot holders from the Board@KHLGLtd.com to express an interest. If you would like to be involved, please reply to this email with your details and plot number. Agreed: RW to send email
d) Boundary Wall Fairlawn Path
The wall is leaning into the site and needs attention. Both idverde and LB Bromley have visited the site and inspected the wall. It is
agreed that it is in need of attention, however where the responsibility lay is unclear. It was suggested that we get a quote for
the remedial works to replace the leaning section with a chain fence.
HM has spoken to Ian Wright from idverde and Cllr Kathy Bunce who have agreed to chase up the matter with Bromley Council and get back to us, but as yet still no response has been received. Agreed:
HM to continue to chase.
e) Board email responses to enquiries.
It is unclear who should respond to the emails and whether or not there has been a response at all. SK responds to lettings and waiting list enquiries which is appropriate. Agreed: Board members to respond to enquiries within their particular area of responsibility. HM to respond to complaints. All to check the thread of the enquiry to ensure there is no duplication.
f) Volunteers lunch
The date for the well overdue lunch to allow the Board to say thank you to all of our much apricated volunteers who keep the site ticking over week after week has been set for 17 th July. Invitation notices to be put up on the main notice board and back gate.
3. Secretary’s Report
HM presented a written report to the Board. The agenda planning meeting was held on 6 th June between HM, KD, RW
KHLG Ltd Management Tools
RW will supply 3 data sticks with current KHLG Ltd data for the Board’s PCs as part of the emergency recovery plan, once the information is correct and complete. More work is needed.
Facilitating the AGM for 2022
The tenancy agreements have been sent out to those plot holder’s who need to sign the new one, for signature and return within 14 days. A new date for the AGM was suggested for September. The Board only’ AGM needs to be discussed with BALGAF. RW to pass details to HM. Plot holders will be invited to stand for office on the Board or submit a motion through an advertisement displayed on the website. Ballot papers for the election of the Board will be sent out to all plot holders that have signed the new tenancy agreement. A copy of the new lease can be found on the website KHLGLtd.com.
Letters/ Communications
A formal complaint was raised by a plot holder following an incident after the open day. It was agreed that KD and HM would speak to both parties. Having spoken with them the complainant wishes to withdraw the complaint as a further development appears to have mitigated the problem. It will be left as long as there are no further incidents. A complaint was received regarding a plot holder persistently cycling along the communal paths without due regard for the safety of fellow plot holders. It has always been the rule that cyclist must dismount once past the car parking area. Most plot holders who bring their bikes on site are happy to comply with this, but persistent disregard of this rule and failure to comply with an instruction from a member of the Board will attract the strictest sanctions in future.
A reminder to ALL plot holders that taking produce or equipment from other people’s plots without their permission (theft) will result in instant dismissal from the site.
Reminder to all car drivers that cars must be parked in the car park not by the manure / wood chip pile. That area is for loading, unloading only as it blocks the through put access from the machine room/ sheds / storage cage.
Current Communication Activity
HM will maintain communication with idverde until the issue of the wall is resolved.
Open Day Debrief
Although the open day generally was a great success there were a few issues arising, which is not surprising given we were rusty after the two-year shut down. It was agreed to try and iron out the wrinkles with a Board debrief to help make future events run smoother.
Learning points ‚Äď
Ôā∑ Signage of facilities, especially the lavatory block (as many
visitors were unaware they were there).
Ôā∑ Raffle The raffle needs to be better organised with a named¬†volunteer in charge and the person drawing the tickets agreed
in advance.
Ôā∑ Meet, greet and problem solve. KD, as chair needs to be Front
of House to mingle with the visitors, meet and greet our guests¬†and look after the musicians (especially arranging¬†refreshments). As chair his decision on any matter on the day is¬†final. A new team is needed to run the burger bar.¬†Ôā∑ Tents. They need to be struck on a work weekend to ensure¬†there are sufficient people around to safely take them down.
The small number of volunteers that were around ran the risk of permanent damage to their backs and shoulders. In the event of rain, it should be postponed to the following weekend.
Ôā∑ Changing decisions. Once a decision has been made by the¬†Board members regarding the day it must be stuck with unless¬†there is an overriding reason to change it. The Chair has the¬†final say.¬†Ôā∑ Hopefully there will be a smaller (but perfectly formed) Autumn
Open Day in September in conjunction with the beekeepers.
Planning needs to begin as soon as possible. – All
4. Treasurer’s Report
Two years’ worth of accounts were audited in the week. It was a mammoth job. The Board wish to thank RW for all of his hard work in the matter. As a consequence, accurate account balances were not available for publication at the time of the meeting but will be published in the week.

The shop is fully loaded with stock although the ground cover is nearly sold out and needs to be reordered.
There has been a request from the chair of another allotment site to join the shop enterprise. After a full discussion it was Agreed: This was not appropriate as the shop is for KHLG site only.
6. Site Manager’s Report
Plot Inspections.
The inspections took place on the 8th June and 15 plot notices were issued, mostly for grass / path cutting and 2 for health and safety issues around ponds. Plots 8a / 18 /11b have received notices for non-cultivation.
One plot has received a 3 rd notice which could result in a NTQ. MS will contact the plot holder to advise.

7. Lettings Manager’s Report
In SK’s absence KD advised that a lettings day needs to be arranged for Darren’s plot before it deteriorates further. One plot holder
asked for a plot swap. After much discussion it was decided that this was not appropriate and would be offered to the next applicant on the waiting list.
Drumbeat has vacated half of its plot which will be conjoined to the plot below.
A request has been made to by the trestle on the plot under NTQ. All possessions belonging to a plot following vacation by NTQ must be left for a month before they can be disposed of. The site has been offered a new rotavator for £125.00 Agreed: to
buy it.

8. Health & Safety Issues
AP advised that a lot of debris has been dumped outside the top gate by Fairlawn Park. It is believed the culprit is known to the Board and a quite word needs to be had.
There is also some dangerous rusty stuff dumped outside the yard / compound that needs to be removed.
The small pond has had the warning tape removed and must be replaced. Both pounds need to be made safe. An email to the plot
holders is required.

Covid ‚Äď 19
We are reminding all plot holders to continue to exercise care in enclosed places as Covid ‚Äď 19 variants are still with us.

9. A.O.B
RW ‚Äď Suggested a sturdy metal post box be sited at the top of the drive to ensure all of our post is delivered on time. ‚Äď it was Agreed.
RW advised we need a new sign for our address as we have changed our accountants.

Apologies: None

1. Chairs Opening Remarks
KD greeted the Board and commented on the difficulty of getting online for the meeting by Reg. He noted that there has been a lot of activity on site this month and thanked MS and the volunteers as well as other Board members for another successful weekend of workdays.
MS commented that on Saturday only two volunteers showed up at the start but more people joined for different parts of the morning.
RW stated that he had removed a substantial number of poles and other metal from plot 11b2, which allowed it to be let on the day.

2. Minutes of Meeting 14th March 2022

SK has been unable to attend the site.
Agreed: Work remains outstanding to be completed when SK has recovered. – SK
b) Joining Plots 4a / 4b
A full and frank discussion took place on the proposal to join these two plots due to their irregular shape and the fact that standing
alone plot 4b is in a very poor condition, planted mainly to trees and would be very difficult to bring back to a lettable condition given the experience with void vineyards. The surrounding plots in that area of the site are full length and therefore it makes sense to bring the plot in line with the others.
The Board understands that regrettably a few adverse comments have been made by some plot holders regarding this matter. However, this action had always been envisaged once a plot became void.
Agreed: To merge both plots into one. – Unanimous
c) First Aid training

addresses yet.

3. Secretary’s Report
HM presented a written report to the Board. Having taken on the extra duties it was agreed to purchase a PC and printer for the exclusive use of KHLG Ltd work.
HM advised the Board that the review of the JD has taken place which will be an ongoing process at the monthly meetings. HM and KD will require training for some functions. To be arranged once in possession of the PC.
There is a pressing need for an AGM as soon as possible to review the rent level and agree on the financial reports. But due to the creation of KHLG Ltd as a requirement of granting the new lease, the company is now registered with Companies House. To hold a full AGM the members attending must be registered as shareholders.

It was envisaged the plot holders would sign the new tenancy agreement on the Rent Days, thus allowing them to be registered as a shareholder. But as Rent Days have not been held in person for over a year due to the Covid -19 pandemic, this didn’t happen, leaving us with an incomplete list of the plot holders that have signed the new tenancy agreements. Therefore, it is not possible for a full AGM to go ahead in the usual manner.
Agreed: As Members of the Board are the only registered shareholders currently with Companies House the AGM will be held on line by the Board, to agree on rental levels for next year and ratify decisions taken during the past two years. Plot holders will be invited to attend the meeting as observers.
Agreed: RW to print copies of the new Tenancy Agreement to be sent out to plot holders ASAP for signature and return, to allow the plot holders to be registered as shareholders.
HM to arrange the mailout of the letters.

Request for the cover was acknowledged on 6th January 2022, however, there will be a two-week delay in issuing the certificate although we are covered in the
interim.
KD asked if there was a simplified way of presenting the financial data. RW replied that now we are in a position to have the one account it should become a lot simpler. This will be further explored at the agenda planning meeting. -HM
