Minutes of previous meeting (AGM) were read and approved
- Road Works. Laurence has no fixed work schedule until the weather turns wet to show areas that need work. Scalpings are ferried across and ready to be used. More will be bought in April. There is no news from Highland Council on the possibility of a sample load of used tarmac. Dale pointed out that bags of material at Tom’s port will need to be moved higher before gales start. Footpath: Cathy has noted a couple of eroding culverts. Areas needing work will be marked with canes for Ian to prioritise. Vegetation: Laurence and Aggie have been clearing back gorse on Chris’s hill and behind Alli Weightman’s but there is plenty more to do. Brashings have gone to the bonfire site.
- Financial Report: The SCA account is holding more money than it needs for everyday expenditure. Hugh has suggested investing in some high interest enterprise. Laurence suggested that a trailer dedicated to the road job would broaden out the number of people who could work, if they already have a quad. Various options were discussed and second hand trailers posted online will be investigated.
- Peter Young’s shed at Badluarach Jetty. It was agreed that the contents of the shed are Peter’s responsibility, and that he should be asked to either clear it out himself or agree to foot the bill for someone else to do it, before the SCA accepts any form of ownership. Laurence suggested that the site would be most useful as a covered loading bay. Cathy will continue to pursue the issue of ownership or tenancy of the land on which the shed sits.
- Lighthouse refurbishment: Discussion on this deferred to a dedicated meeting this winter, organised by Cathy
- Mooring Boat: business deferred to a dedicated meeting following this one.
AOB: Paul Betts offered to move bags of road material to where needed, if his costs can be covered.
Next meeting Sunday 27th November at 4pm in SSS. This time now amended to 3pm.
