Malcolm Chalk chaired the meeting in the absence of Denys.

The main agenda point for the meeting was the Malton & Norton Community Web Site being put together by Simon Chalk. Simon demonstrated the website using the Lodge’s wire-free system although a little difficult to show due to the screen size it was largely agreed that it was moving in the right direction. Again it was pointed out to the members attending that the content of the website had to come from BIA members, particularly details of their businesses and products for website display. The website is live if only on a temparary basis by keying in http://www.dickensmalton.org/ the http://www.maltonandnorton.co.uk is still not yet live. It was hoped for the next Lodge meeting to have the website live.

A rough draft of the soon to be printed Malton Trail was shown round, John Marshall said that “In Print printers should be given the opportunity to quote for the leaflet”, as it turns out at a subsequent meeting with Competitive Edge, In Print will be printing it. It was also discussed that when a proof closer to the finish was available it would be taken around interested parties with a view to seeking advertising sponsorship on the basis of the business closest to the Malton Trail numbered point, at the rate of £45.00 for a 55mm x 38mm box with BIA members being given the first oportunity.

There being no other business the meeting closed.
