3 Annual General Meeting: Still confirmed as Tuesday, 22 November (even though it clashes with St Faith’s Christmas Fair).  We shall meet to set up at 6:30 and the meeting will commence at 7:00. Patti to send email re contributions to the catering. ALL
4 Give and Take Day, Brentford Dock: In abeyance for the present.  However, West London Waste is considering the possibility of organising such an event, with perhaps a “swishing” event, too. They will keep us informed. F/up EARLY IN THE NEW YEAR
5 BRAG web site:Further discussions took place and, in the absence of both Andrew and Kath, discussed  web software, WordPress, and the possibility of using one of the social networks  eg. Facebook .Cindy pointed out what a huge task it would be to bring the BRAG website up to date. She suggested setting up a BRAG Facebook page (perhaps in addition to the website?) because it is easy to create and update and might attract a broader, and younger, audience than we have at present. In the meantime, however, we should try to arrange to close the existing, very out of date, web site with a notice that it is under revision. We agreed we would put this to Kath for her views and possible action. PH KR CB AD
6 Noticeboard: Next week Patti and Hugh will put up notices – very kindly enlarged and printed by Cindy – announcing the AGM and inviting people to attend. HP PH
7 Outer London Fund for Brentford: Some of this funding will be spent on an Italian Food Market, scheduled for Market Place, Brentford, on 18th & 19th November and a French Market on 9th  & 10th December. Live music and entertainment will play a prominent part at these all day and evening events. Please encourage as many people as you can to attend! ALL
