084D Spanish classes now finished, if the current tutor does not accept our terms of room rent and payment he will not be invited back.

SH spoken to Ian Kendall, Land Trust regarding the street lighting on Colliery Rd, they are reluctant to accept responsibility for the lighting. Land Trust have reviewed their budget and decided they should not be covering the cost of road lighting. Mr Kendall is taking it back to LT. An issue has arisen with the drains in that they are completely blocked with silt. The builders on site will connect drains to a different system.

PB raised a query regarding the management of Kiveton Meadows, SH confirmed we have withdrawn our interest.

Freight Liners have renewed the room rent contract. Freight Liners have complained about the inconvenience of having to park 25 yards away from the building.

The minutes were proposed by DB as a true and accurate record, seconded by PB

2016/096D:   Financial Report.

SH presented the reports to the Board, CDT, Kivo-ebiz and Kiveton Creative accounts all show continued improvements. There were no questions from the Board.

A quote for a sign board for the sports facility has been received approximately £1400.

A new CCTV system is in the process of being installed, the estimated price for that will be approximately £6000. The system is a very up to date design and will cover the sports facility as well as the building.

SH has had a meeting with Rotherham social prescribing representative, we are still hopeful the Colliery Offices will be used as a venue, further meetings arranged for next week. Another project that hopefully will come to us is Improving Communities an organisation based in Sheffield that requires an office in the Rotherham area. Further meetings in a couple of weeks. SH informed the Board of her intention to retire in September, hopefully by then we will have a CEO in place.
