The Treasurer then reported that he had contacted BT regarding the Centre's telephone and he had discovered that they had disconnected the alarm line as well as the old payphone line. He had naturally been very angry with BT about this and had contacted OFTEL regarding compensation and was pursuing a claim for £25 per day for lose of use. If he was successful we were due over £500 in compensation.
The purchasing of a bouncy castle from Cartsdyke Resource Centre was then discussed. A figure of around £300 had been agreed for this, and possibly the same amount again to have the item serviced. The Committee felt that the money would be quickly repaid by the amount of lets from the many parties that would use it. Both the Treasurer and the Secretary had reservations about the suitability of the castle in the hall because of its height. It was agreed to try it out, in the hall on Monday evening when the youth club was on.
Finlay brought up the subject of the new tables, the Committee discussed this at length and all agreed the situation had to be resolved as soon as possible.
