2. General Business
Martin welcomed everyone to the meeting. Confirmed that the community council has only 7 council members. Need to attract more members. Suggestions were made regarding this, and some discussion took place on how this might be achieved. Martin suggested whether consideration might be given to having a different venue for the council meetings.
Mandi suggested possibility of a table at Heart of Braehead events or the option to have an event on a Saturday which would enable facetime with the community. Veronica did point out that it's not advisable to hold a meeting at the same time.
Dates for the next years meetings were discussed – next meeting for June will be 21st and no meeting in July. August meeting is likely to be Wednesday 30 August – suggestions on holding a possible “event” on 26 August. Hugh confirmed that if this was likely to go ahead needed to arrange leaflets/flyers etc. Can this be funded by the current budget? Martin suggesting contacting other organisations to see if they wish to be involved. As well has
printed leaflets/flyers how about a digital flyer as well.
Mandi to see if the Crawford Hall is available on Saturday 26 August.
