We acknowledge the vital role that Mervyn Carter, our Warden plays and thank him for his service which is over and above his job description. We agree to the salary increase recommended by this committee. Relief Wardens are asked to read the review of dealing with “Callers to the door’. All Friends are recommended to note this advice which will be posted on the notice board.

We thank Liz and Bob Hurley for their service in organising the relief rota and we ask for more volunteers for this.
