Minute of meeting held on December
11, 2000 in Vestry at Tarves Kirk to discuss Zone 98.
Present: Kath Galbraith, Lucy Gray, Charlie
Ligertwood, Ian Massie, Linda Mackie, Innes Stephen, Colin Taylor.
Apologies: Paul Johnston
The new roof has been installed so that the
portacabin is wind and water tight, with the exception of one panel,
which will be covered. Paul Johnston had agreed to try to secure a
dehumidifier, since Aberdeenshire Council had none available.
Linda Mackie had inspected the mobile home on
offer, and Wallace Caravans had agreed to carry out any necessary work
and could probably move it to Tarves within two weeks.
The meeting felt that if a dehumidifier were
obtained quickly, heating could be restored to the cabin, and it would
be possible for it to be brought back into use on the week beginning
January 8. In view of that early date, it was decided that the offer of
the caravan should be declined with thanks, and it was hoped the mobile
home would still be available for youth groups in other neighbouring
Lucy Gray said that there would be a need for
seating and Colin Taylor agreed to approach a possible source. Linda
Mackie and Lucy are to investigate the possibility of tiling the area
around the sink.
It is hoped the youngsters themselves will move
ahead with fund raising, and they are also to make an approach to the
Network Development Group for cash aid.
There had been no response from parents willing to
join the management committee, so approaches are to be made to a number
of people to discover if they would be willing to join.
The next meeting is to be held on January 8, at
Tarves Primary School.
