The minutes of the Sept meeting were agreed as accurate. We also agreed that, in future we would agree/amend the minutes by email soon after they are circulated. This will allow them to be posted on the website much quicker.

Website group - has not been able to meet. Will seek new members at the AGM. Communal Bins - the roll-out has been delayed.

Long Wall update - the committee agreed we would receive and distribute the Council cash for the mural process, so long as we label each transaction with 'Mural'. The call for more consultation by the Community Engagement Officer was discussed. There is another Wall Group meeting planned for Friday at 3pm.

Zoom subscription - we agreed to renew for another month on 13th October so that it is available if we have to hold a Zoom AGM.

We agreed not to renew the BHHC membership - Rob will inform BHHC membership secretary Barry Hughes.

AGM planning - Stefania will circulate the paperwork from last AGM to guide our creating this year's paperwork. Agenda and Treasurers report will both appear on the website, and the facebook page used to point folk at it. We will urge Kate R to mention AGM a few more times before it happens, Rob will do same with Friends of RH email group. Jamie will be asked to approach the person he knows who may take on Treasurer role. Someone (Kate R) will present highlights of last year.
