- The majority of the tools provided by the Chestnut Fund have arrived on our doorstep. Most exciting!
- The cheque to make up the shortfall in the insurance funding has been sent.
Targets: Await the issue of the insurance documents in order to start volunteers on the project. Balance the books, also. Await the rest of the tools, chasing them up if necessary.
TRUSTEES AND OTHER ADMIN
- A date has been set for our first Trustees meeting this month. Yay! The plan is to get a constitution and business plan drawn up, a bank account set up and to register ourselves as a company registered by guarantee.
Targets: Achieve the above!
WORKING ON THE PLOT
- Was contacted by the Secretary of the allotments recently because our plots had got out of hand. Oh dear, this was not good! He was appeased by the fact that I plan to get hold of volunteers this month and begin to sort out the mess. I plan have the bottom plot sorted by the end of the month and set up the VSO group to clear the top plot in October. There is nothing like haviing a deadline to get a person moving!
Targets: Contact the prospective volunteers and get digging. Also, contact Matt the Youth Worker to borrow more tools so that I can then approach the VSO guy to raise the idea of a Big Dig.
Pray on people, especially with the timing of all this. If things are not sorted soon then we stand a chance of losing at least one of our plots. I have faith that this will not happen, but I would appreciate you standing by me in prayer for this. Thanks.
