2) Minutes of last meeting – 7th May
3) Declarations of Interest
4) Financial Review
JH will request a grant from Shaw and Crompton Parish council for £250. This money will have to be used within 6 months and is a one-off grant. It might be possible to apply again in the future.
The paperwork to set up the bank account for the group was distributed to PB (chair) and DB (secretary).
BH – Suggested that the local bridleways group does have some funds that may be available. E.g. they helped fund a horse corral at Dovestones.
5) Meeting Report Update
Issues brought up:
6) Role of Secretary – DB clarified his position of secretary and suggested changing the wording of section 5h) of the constitution from ‘the secretary’ to ‘ the committee’. Agreed by all.
7) Press Releases
RV was invited to talk about recent press articles and the councils’ view of the Crompton Moor project. RV said he had explained to the press about the project and some of the things he had said had been slightly mis-quoted.
GW suggested that the dog-walking group in the articles had been targeted as the only dissenting group and this was not the case.
The IMBA article was also discussed. RV said that the article didn’t say anything that he hadn’t already spoken to the user group and press about.
8) Activity Feedback.
9) Data Protection Act
A question arose regarding data protection of committee members. JH said there were two ways to go about this:
All voted for the first option.
10) Any Other Business
MH said that there are piles of logs near the bike trail that are being used for the trails. LV suggested it would be better to remove them off site. LV to action.
