The minutes of the December meeting were read and accepted
Matters Arising were dealt with on the agenda
Grahame Wilson indicated he did not want to divide up his job as treasurer. At the December meeting, it had been thought that a volunteer could be sought to help him with the treasurer's tasks, as he was living overseas for parts of the year. GW said he would prefer to relinquish the job altogether. After a brief discussion, Chris Pointon volunteered to take on the job of treasurer.
Pat Fisher gave a comprehensive report on the situation regarding the Xmas lights in Norwood Town Centre, which covered both some disappointment at the 2004/5 display and the proposals for next Christmas, which had begun early in the light of last year's experience.
She said the town centre office had thought it might get NAG and other organisations involved in August and September. A competition for schools was also suggested and the need for more funding for improvements. It was agreed we wanted to see improvements next year and NAG would be happy to be involved.
Tulse Hill Survey
JP was asked to confirm with the town centre that we definitely wanted a slot to present our survey at the next Area Committee meeting on 17th February 2005. There was a pressure of time on the meeting, to vacate the room, through a misunderstanding on bookings, so we left it until the next meeting to discuss details.
Any Other Business
The next meeting will be on 8th February 2005 at Lancasters Wine Bar basement Norwood Road commencing at 7.30pm
