Anne will contact Wendy regarding the hot chocolate used at the switch-on of the Christmas lights – this will be done this week.

Clare suggested holding a Junior Bake-Off competition involving the primary schools and the organisations.  The committee agreed and it was decided to do it during Fairtrade Fortnight in 2015.  Malcolm suggested that Rotary might be willing to fund the prizes.
