It has been established that the photocopier in the
Village Hall belongs to ACT. After discussion it was
decided to ask Village Hall Committee whether we could
store the photocopier on the stage as it may work if it
is in a dry environment. It would of course have to be
moved if the stage is in use.
A suggestion was put forward to hold a Christmas Fayre.
This was agreed upon.
