3 Noticeboard: Andy Chaffey, Regional Manager, Morrisons, has asked us to tell them the anticipated cost of purchase and installation of a replacement noticeboard. We have consulted with Rachel Victor-Sampson, Town Manager and Martin Barrow who is the surveyor for the area of Market Square where we might like to position the board. Wendy has researched a couple of companies who supply the kind of board we had so now are just waiting for some costings so that we can go back to Morrisons. PH
4 Marie Curie Coffee Mornings: These continue to be held successfully every month in the Brentford Dock club room to raise funds. The next one will be on Monday 21st December from 10:30 to 12:30.  Please attend if you can! Good cause to support. ALL
5 FOOD WASTE RECYCLING AT TOWN MEADOW: Chelsea and Louisa were in communication but as Louisa has now left,  Chelsea will try to communicate with Anna Humphries, who has taken her place. (Hugh tells us that the food waste collection plans are now progressing at Brentford Dock.) CE  LP
6 CHRISTMAS LUNCH: This will take place at the Griffin, Brook Road, on Wednesday 9th December at 12:30.
7 BRENTFORD COUNCILLORS: Myra and Guy had hoped to attend the AGM but were unable to so they came along to this meeting.  We were very happy to welcome them and give them BRAG’s background.  They were able to confirm the plans for wheelie bins in the Borough and other changes which may occur.  We had a very good discussion about recycling, they were both impressed with our commitment and we talked about future projects which BRAG might consider for the future.
