Closed meeting at 8:30
Bob Willerton: Suggested we decorate the walls with the A2 posters. Phil Johnson: Frames available for about £5. Also suggested different style of frames for each year/season as continuity of one style is unlikely.
Jim Parkinson: Standard covers for Trinity Players with only the insert pages being changed per play.
Paul Taylor: Sponsorship of back cover advert may be a sum of money for, say, 500 covers irrespective of which play. May “change” sponsor during a play in that case.
Dale Rivers: When emailing members put “members@” into b.c.c box only to avoid reply to all becoming a nuisance. Opening greeting to be “Dear Members”.
WALTER EGO: by Andrew Crossland
Andrew Crossland: Wants to run a workshop of his new play – suggests Thursday 23rd July, Andrew to check with Barbara/Clive Parkinson for hall booking.
CHILDRENS SAFETY & THE TECHNICAL DESK
Alice Willerton: Please don’t allow children to use this as a climbing frame, it’s not fair to leave discipline to Alice only – parental responsibility.
Paul Taylor: will seek prices for TP fleeces.
Alice Willerton: suggested “Close The Coalhouse Door”
Andrew Crossland: suggested a sort of promenade piece using various parts of the building with the audience moving from area to area.
Paul Taylor suggested moving to four plays per annum
Financial cornerstone is pantomime so stays in January
April play should go to the Wakefield Drama Festival
Monday 10th August, 19:30 at 90 Huddersfield Road, S75 1AH.
