Directors' report

Incident review

RH - There have now been 2 incidents of non members entering the space through the glass door and trying to remove/steal items.

  1. The first incident, youths tried to remove aluminium ladders. When confronted they picked up items such as a hammer to threaten members
  2. The second occasion, 2 men were overheard planning to steal bikes and then when they entered the space to remove the bikes were confronted my Jenny who scared them off.

I believe some kind of control is now required to reduce/stop this. Maybe the topic of CCTV may need to be raised to collect evidence if required. Yet again i would suggest a vote of fitting a automatic clase mechanism to remove the visual opportunity for passer-bys to scout out the space. - if agreed we can then approach Robert to get his permission.
