It was decided to send an email to the mail list advising us if they wished to be removed.
Ruth is managing the GDPR aspect of child protection and safeguarding.

Constitution and Committee
A motion will be proposed for new guidelines for committee members at the next AGM. It was decided that an EGM was not required at this stage. Joe Battye heading up Trinity Juniors and Hazel Armitage heading up the news letter were welcomed onto the committee. Graham is going to take charge of procuring the library card for obtaining future play scripts etc, and some front of house. Zena is to remain as Facebook champion in liaison with Jane as marketing manager. Ruth and Bob Willerton are to oversee the social events for the club and hope to get ideas from members, please do get in touch with any suggestions. 

The recent barbecue hosted by Bob and Ruth was a success and the weather for once was perfect:

Future Plays
3rd to 6th October 2018 – Comfort and Joy – not to be missed, this has nearly been fully cast just a couple of minor parts left to be snapped up (at the time of writing).
10th to 13th April 2019- Death Trap – Paul Taylor has offered to direct and licensing is being procured.
10th to 13th July 2019 – no play selected yet, ideas are welcome.

It was agreed to purchase some communication devices such as or similar to walkie talkies to aid communication between the Lighting β€œtower” and the stage manager, this will aid the lighting and sound people to do what they do best and also allow them easier communication with backstage.

Trinity Juniors
Joe Battye has started a group of children who will perform a short revue style play at the Trinity in October. Rehearsal dates will be over the summer. Please contact Joe Battye or Rachael Sharpe if interested. This is an exciting new venture for Trinity and we are glad to have Jo on board facilitating the new group for the youngsters.

Christmas Party
Ruth will look into booking the Talbot Inn in Mapplewell again as last year was very well received.
