J Ellis suggested that the community council should be much more pro-active in communicating with the community and informing them of some of the work of the council. He suggested that a minute of the meeting should be posted on a web site. We should also put posters in the library to help with the recruitment nights. The Association of Community councils have been spending more time and money on an e-programme. Renfrewshire Council have the facilities available. Bishopton and Howwood have websites up and running. He felt that we should be striving for this and Aex Hewetson is keen that this should happen.
Members should add their e-mail address to our council list and check that information already held is accurate. This will be discussed at the next meeting.
T Fulton is to be involved in the development of a project group.
H Tidswell recommended that we should try to organise a visit every three months.
Make more use of the Advertizer - a community newsletter already goes in. Ideas for visits would be welcomed.
This concluded the business of the Annual General Meeting.
