Minutes of the Board Meetings

At the moment the minutes are always a month behind in publication as they have to be approved at the next meeting by Board Members. It has been discussed to approve a quicker method of letting the Members have the minutes sooner, this should be in effect in the near future.

Meanwhile the Chairman will issue a News Flash should there be any urgent item that the members should be notified.
