 +===== Topics discussed =====

Action: Wiki has been updated to include information about reporting issues (email or talk to committee members). Accident book to be installed next First Aid Kit in G10 and G11. Health and safety officer needed (insurance issue)? DW to check.

 +  * Monitoring usage/​identifying wrongdoers/​imposing penalties for non-compliance with agreed rules. Discussion about how to formalise hackspace membership, and make it feel more inclusive, eg new member agreement form, membership card, membership fee. Many issues in this area, to be put to the members meeting.

As far as we know, there'​s no more available at present in BV Studios. Weldtech proposal has fallen through (too much money). Action: monitor situation. Follow possible leads with Bristol council.
