1.            Minutes of previous Committee Meeting (date)agreed.

2.             Matters Arising:

                     Park Site Security. Work has been completed and appears successful including bollards.

High Court injunction in place in Selly Oak Park to prohibit illegal camping. Under terms of high court injunction Scouts are allowed to Camp on Selly Oak Park. There are signs up in Selly Oak Park re:High Court Injunction and the Public are recommended to phone the Police on 101 if they see people illegally camping on Selly Oak park. The High Court Injunction can last up to 2 years.High court Injunction against illegal camping also in operation in Selly Park Recreation ground and this injunction has been successfully used for illegal camping in Selly Park Recreation Ground.

                     Central Park Feature: Suggestion for New Nursing Home Builders, who may be able to provide materials, more cost efficiently and could do plant and quantity work.(Simon Stafford) As this is BCC land approved BCC contractors have to be used. However outside contractors would be allowed to donate materials.(Sue Amey)

                      Outside contractors would need publicity for their generosity(Simon Stafford) To check this could be allowed by BCC(Action Sue Amey )

3. Festival 2018

Further plans for Selly Oak Park Festival will be discussed at the next meeting.
4.  Carols in the Park
Date as agreed by Committee Members for Carols in the Park Saturday 9th December
5. Hoping to get additional Committer Members from those attending today's  AGM.

6. Litter Picking
Appeared to be quite a lot of litter, especially bottles during summer.(Andrew Schofield)
No complaints received to BCC re:litter. The public could complain via BCC Call centre                               
and on-line(Sue Amey.) Nicola Clarke to find out dates of BCC/Idverde litter picks.
FOSOP may have to supplement BCC/Idverde litter picks e.g. FOSOP litter pick previous Saturday. Other Parks have increased bin emptying(Sue Amey.) Scouts could support litter picking in Summer as part of Community impact badge for age 10 to 14 year olds on a Wednesday evening (Gerard Airey and Chris Wallace.) Idverde/BCC would support the Scouts efforts by providing bags and additional pick ups for these additional bags following litter picks by Scouts.(Nicola Clarke)

7. Any other business

Andrew was unsure whether this offer was taken up by the lady who owned the dog.
