6. Insurance
Birmingham Open Spaces Forum has a group policy for small events because our event in larger we pay an additional £125.00 to cover the size of the event this involves AS explaining and form filling annually because the insurers do not recall previous years. Option to change insurance to Zurich cost £150 per annum to cover all we need with the benefit of not having the bureaucracy of varying a policy annually. AS checked with council they do not have a view on who we are insured with. Decision delegated to AS

Action AS to decide and purchase insurance

Zip wire has been vandalised and there was a fire near Canal bridge on Sunday. Street watch walk group??
Question when injunction expires?
Access to new shopping centre would be good to have access to new shopping centre under bridge. Issue of land ownership and who would fund the work. Up to bridge council land unlikely to have finance for it. Shopping centre don’t seem interested funding anything not their land.
