As always the town election reduced the trustees to their primal unformed state. As it happened, they came together in a circle on the rug in the Children's room (all other rooms being booked).

Bill began to take notes and on prompting brought the meeting to order and took nominations for Chair.

Motion to nominate Wendy as Chair. MAC1, WLR2. As she's willing, the motion carried unanimously.

On learning that all she needed to do was keep Wendy willing and able, Meena agreed to be Vice Chair.

Motion to nominate Meena as Vice Chair: MAC1, WLR2. Unanimous

Motion to nominate Bill as Secretary: MJ1, MAC2, Unanimous
