Minutes of the 11/11/2008 meeting were agreed as accurate with minor corrections.
7 c (Light
in kitchen). DC had looked again- it is quite serviceable.
ACTION: Leave it as it is.
7 g (Contribution
for readership). The PCC had received £300 from the Diocese towards the £400
cost of training; this is expected to be recurrent for next year. The LMG is
holding back for the moment. We have not asked St. Andrew’s or Rodney Stoke.
NB. It will cost £41 for each registration once the candidates are accepted.
ACTION: (No further action required).
8 b (Organ repair). Not done yet- he should be here next Saturday (can he do it in time for the concert?)
8 c (Receipts
for English Heritage). RD had not found the WCT receipt on his return.
ACTION: DC will request a replacement, and pass it on to Victor Skinner.
Meeting of 11/11/08
7 a (Showing candidates around) Both actions carried out
8 b (Stewarding at Bishop’s Palace). Victor has written to magazine.
(items received and added to agenda- 8i)
need to thank the legal team that have helped at the hearing and before (Susanna
Walker, Ruth Arlow, Andrew Johnson). Stanley’s suggestion was that Andrew might
appreciate a gift certificate for sheet music (e.g. from Musicroom.com) as he
is involved with amateur orchestras. Flowers would perhaps be acceptable for
the ladies. This was agreed
ACTION: CG to organise the music voucher; TH to organise flowers- £50 per gift
(we would raise as much as possible by contributions from the PCC)
must also find an appropriate way to express our appreciation to Stanley. RD
said that he would make a present of a week from their time-share holiday
scheme. We would also make a contribution towards travel expenses (it would
need to be at least £200).
ACTION: RD will make this offer on behalf of the PCC to Stanley and Eva. Once more we will try to raise the cash part so that this does not come from church funds.
Most is in hand, but one or two details remain:
not yet done, but we need them in time for Wednesday night if possible
ACTION: TO will ask Richard Oliver, CG to ask Nikki Devitt if they can do this tomorrow.
Cheddar had decided on the York course. CG had read it
and recommended it to the PCC. Do we want to joint them? The PCC agreed.
ACTION: CG will mail Ken Lewis (organiser for Cheddar) and request that we be included.
The PCC were delighted with the appointment of Sue Rose as the new incumbent. TO has already written to congratulate her on our behalf.
She wants to meet the team ahead of her taking up the post. NB. There is quite a large team already at St. Andrews- Rupert Bursell, Judith Rose, Hilary Thomas, Ann Wait.
need someone to take our Easter service. Richard Lewis is back in Wells- might
we ask him?
ACTION: RD will investigate.
DC reported that the lightning conductor has been done, although we have not yet received the bill.
Nothing much to report- DC wants to have everything finalised by the end of the month.
Accounts: Standard- £4,511 deposit, £3,031 Current; Refurbishment- £1,482 and £3,000.
PTAF (6th December)- made us £79.
We had received the newsletter. NB. Pentecost- 31st May. Participation from parishes will be invited. We will need to think about this and plan.
CG described the latest part of the Readership training, which had taken place on an away weekend at Abbey House in Glastonbury.
CG communicated the latest round of publicity from the diocese.
Do we want to participate as a parish or PCC?
ACTION- The PCC was broadly supportive but thought that this should be left to individual decision.
Next PCC- Monday12th Jan, 9 Barnett’s Well.
Further PCC meetings: 16th Feb (RD & SD, BR- apologies); 23rd March.
APCM: 26th April.
The meeting was closed with the Grace.
