3. Minutes of 7th May 2019
The minutes were agreed and passed. AS proposed and RW seconded. (DeepingDo comment: This suggests the minutes of the 23rd January have still not been ratified!)
AS said that the SKDC have sent a Lease with new Terms and Conditions for the Parlour. AS asked all present to read through the Lease. RW asked if the Parlour will continue to be Leased to the Parlour (sic). AS said that it would and would be on a 5 year basis. RW proposed and JS seconded.

6. Mayor’s Car
AS stated that after 4 years KIA will no longer be able to lend us a vehicle. He said that we have had 4 good years and are very grateful to them. AS said that he is sending a letter of thanks to KIA and will also make a press statement of thanks to them. RW suggested that we set up a small working group so that they can put their heads together to come up with a solution for getting a new vehicle. The working group will be AS, DW, RW and JS. HW asked how many miles we do a year and AS said that it was around 4,000 to 5,000 miles. RW asked what we are doing in the meantime. JS said that we could share a vehicle. RW agreed with this. GJ said that this was sensible and asked when we would be getting a new vehicle. AS said hopefully we will get this sorted over the next week. RW asked what the Reserve Amount is at present and AS said it is around £15,000.
Meeting ended at 7.10pm
Dated of next meeting to be agreed.
