1.      Church opening

We had made a decision at the PCC meeting of 30th May 2006 that we would need to keep the church closed in view of the valuation of the font (at between £40,000 and £100,000), pending enquiries to Ecclesiastical Insurance over insurance cover.

SP reported that he had heard back from the insurance company. The policy has been amended to cover the font (although the premium is not affected).

There now seems no further reason to keep the church closed. SP proposed that we reopen it during the daytime, as previously. TO seconded; all agreed.

2.      Grant application to Wyvern Environmental Trust

VS reported that he was going to apply to Wyvern Environmental Trust for a further grant. Since they would only consider new invoices (and most of the roof invoices are now old), only the final invoice for architect's fees would be eligible. Applications for grant had to be in by 30th September, as the Trust was being wound up at that date.

3.      Handover of Treasurer/ Covenant Secretary's duties

With Wendy and John Cartwright now definitely moving, we needed to be sure that all their duties had been explained and handed over to DC and VS, preferably in written form for future reference at times when temporary Treasurers were needed, as in times of holidays. CG had asked them but it seemed best for DC and VS to deal with them directly.
