Grass to be strimmed regularly to dam head. Area between dam and road to be cleared of heavy vegetation.
10 year inspection coming up in 2020/2021 which will cost an additional £2,500 to £3,000 on top of the normal annual fee of £1,100 (£440 SEPA, £660 Engineer inspection and report). Club to start making arrangements to bank funds over next couple of years to cover.
Members keen to progress with review of how we can get reservoir/dam classed as low risk.
Finances agreed by all

Proposal put forward to increase ticket prices in 2019 to cover the increasing cost of the Dam inspections and also to fund investment in a new perimeter fence.
Adult member - £100. All tickets will be at this price with no difference for day/night.
Concession - £50 which will include nights.
Senior Junior and Junior to remain at £25 and £5 respectively.
Proposal put forward to allow each member to bring 2 x guests per year on a special guest day ticket.
Cost would be £15 for one night or £25 for two nights, payable via PP on club website.
The club will limit it to no more than 2 guests per weekend. Unlimited during the week, but this will need to be monitored.
The Member would be fully responsible for the conduct of the guest.
Weekends to be booked through the treasurer (and if full will be posted on FB)
The proposal for a new fence was discussed and all attendees agreed this was a required improvement. To replace entire fence will be expensive, so is proposed to be replaced over a couple of years to reduce financial impact.
