Firstly, I must apologise for the lack of communication recently but this can be explained during the meeting. There are quite a few outstanding projects which need to be brought up to speed. The meeting will take place at McDermid Park, Perth 7pm-9pm. There is a lot to discuss and there may not be a lot of time for debate and some of the items and these may have to be taken off line and updated at the next meeting. I hope to issue an agenda prior to the meeting to those I have an email address for. Lets hope the weather is favourable and we can go ahead.
