Reading Room Minutes – 4th April 2017

Present: Chris, Hilly, Gerry, Kylie, Jonny, Cathy and Gillian

Apologies: Mike and Stewart


Proposal: Chris Green proposed and seconded as Proxy Chairperson.

Telephone Box: Hilly advised that she had spoken with Mr Duff regarding the telephone box and it has been confirmed that the box is to remain.

Defibrillator: Hilly advised that Trevor McDonald had spoken to David Jones (Guardian) regarding the operation of the defibrillator. Ideally a weekly visual check of the defibrillator should take place to ensure the lock is kept free to enable easy access. All that is then is then required of the AED is to check that the “rescue ready” – located top right – is showing green, if so all is well. If not ring Hilly who will arrange for it to be sorted. The other job of the Guardian is to act as Hilly’s point of contact to check that the AED has been put back.

Posts and Chains: It was decided to put this project on hold for now. Hilly is to check with Mr Duff regarding funds for other projects.
