Reports from Outside Bodies

 Burness Parish Room Management Committee

The Burness Management Committee met on the 5th June at 2pm. The annual accounts were presented having been checked and verified by a third party.  The Burness is in a sound financial position.  Recent changes to the bank account structure means they are now receiving a better interest rate than previously.  Bookings remain sound.

Members on the management committee were discussed. The Burness desperately needs more representation to allow for absences of members and to sustain effective management committee oversight.  If anyone is interested in joining, it requires you to attend up to 3 meetings a year and be prepared to ask questions about the running and operation of the hall.  Cllr Gradwell
