A committee meeting was held on Monday 23rd May at which the following matters were discussed:

 •  Petty vandalism continues to affect the Neuadd with the newly painted doors being scratched once again. However, a new community police officer has been appointed and their contact number is to be displayed so that incidents of vandalism can be reported and logged.
 •  A programme of work is to be started which will include the redecoration of the interior, the rotting kitchen window and the hanging of the curtains. More permanent arrangements for the shop/post office are also to be discussed. It was agreed that no ball games(other than table tennis) should be played inside the Neuadd and the use of blue tack should be banned. Proper notice boards will be erected for displays etc.
 •  Every organisation using the Neuadd should ensure they have a representative present at every meeting otherwise matters affecting them may be discussed and decided upon without their input.
 •  Concern was expressed regarding access to the snooker room and balcony during private events and it was agreed that anybody hiring the Neuadd would normally only have access to the facilities on the ground floor.
 •  Future Events - 17th September - Y Bont bash. 12th November - 40s evening to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the end of 2nd World War
 •  Urdd Fundraising - Brynle Hughes will be organising a series of fund raising events for the Urdd Eisteddfod and during this period there will be no fundraising events for the Neuadd.
 •  Whilst the Neuadd is now in a more secure financial position, this is in a large part due to the Neuadd Lottery. Membership now stands at 35 but we really do need more members. If you are a member encourage others to join, if you arenít a member please join.

Copies of the minutes of the meeting are obtainable from the Secretary Mrs Janice Sheasby.
