The Chair welcomed everyone to the meeting.

Background

Although this was a scheduled AGM, the chair indicated that the meeting should first be made aware of recent crucial developments.

FSEG had just received a thirteen page Asbestos Survey of the Education Centre from Carmarthen County Council and had been advised that remedial work could cost in excess of £10,000. The County had signalled that no financial contribution towards this issue would be made available. The officers of FSEG had however secured a meeting with Emily Thomas of the County Council on Tuesday February 17th.

The chair suggested that further talks should take place with the County Council via Cllr Mair Stevens and FSEG officers before holding the AGM and this was agreed by the meeting. This would enable any newly elected committee to be made fully aware of the situation. Further help and advice would be sought from the County Council by Cllr Mair Stephens.

The postponed AGM would be held on Monday March 2nd at 7:30pm.

Further issues requiring attention were also listed:

  • Legionella & Water Management Risk Assessment pending
  • Potential Electrical costs
  • Boiler room safety and repairs
  • Heating for the main hall
  • Liaison with the Surgery
  • Call for trustees

Some discussion took place as to the future access of currently functioning groups such as Men’s Sheds, The Forum Market and Sports Group.

DATE OF NEXT MEETING

AGM at the Sports and Social Club Monday March 2nd 7:30pm.
