at the moment. A binding machine will also be required at an approximate cost of £40. The
CAP is also thinking of buying one of these. We may be able to borrow it.

assessments are to be completed by 11th September. Sally is still awaiting legal advice
regarding her involvement. Memory sticks containing site details were issued to aid
assessments. These should be circulated.

of the agreed changes have been made and some are still outstanding. Ted’s comments are
