Clear Out Day Good tumout, only two small boxes left. The Alovera
plants left from plant sale and the clear out went to the coffee

Queen’s Jubilee Celebration Excellent day! Thanks to A. Sumner-Smith
for all her efforts. Finances still being sorted. Every one seemed to
have a good time and the event raised the profile of the Universal
Club. Thanks to all those involved.
Fund Raising: Deferred until next meeting.

Post Office petition, discussions on football club still ongoing,
backing Universal Club in their fight to stay open, discussions with
the Highways department in relation to faulty street lights etc.
New officers from AGM, Plea for more support, Post Office petition,
Thanks to people that supported: plant sale, clear out. Jubilee.
G. Smith raised the issue of the future of the DCA. All the officers
are in place because no one else would do the job, not because they
wish to. Support within the community at large is minimal. Activities
already running could continue without the umbrella of the DCA. Is this
the time to consider folding? Discuss. With this in mind the next
meeting will examine the constitution to further investigate the
consequences of any action undertaken.
Meeting closed at 8.40 pm.
Next meeting 11th July at 7.30pm. at the Sutton Centre.
