Minutes 15 November 2021

Public report directors meeting Dufftown & Mortlach Development Trust
All Directors are present: Eleanor Candy (chair), Norma Hunter, Gillian McGarthland (treasurer), Siebette Wester (secretary), Anne Jan Zandstra.

In the directors meeting of 15 November 2021 the following items were discussed:

  1. The minutes of the previous meeting on 28 October were approved by all present.
  2. We have received no new membership applications leaving total membership at 65 members – 52 ordinary members and 13 associate members.
  3. A donation was made to the games committee as thanks for the use of their gazebos during the farmers markets.
  4. We looked back at the November market which was again a great success. With the growing numbers of stall holders and visitors we need to reconsider the location for the future as Albert Street is so narrow which is a potential traffic safety risk.
  5. We also talked about the preparations for the Christmas edition of the market on 11 December. Besides the regular stalls there will be a Santa’s grotto (organised by the Cabin), live music and festive lighting, food and drinks (partly provided by Mortlach Primary school parents council).
  6. Date and time of next meeting: Monday 13 December, 7PM.
