Spring Clean
It was decided to arrange a spring clean and general repair of the hall on a Saturday in the spring 2019

Ticketing
Agreed to increase credit card booking fees so that customers pay the full fee.  At the moment, it’s set at 5% to the customer while Trinity pay the other 5%. 
Increasing ‘Pay on Arrival’ tickets to incentivise online purchases was discussed but deferred.

Marketing
Zena has published an article in the Chron.  A facebook programme has been designed and scheduled for automatic publication.
An e-shot has gone out on Wednesday 19th Dec via MailChimp

Rehearsal Subscriptions
It was discussed to set a charge for teas, coffees and biscuits during rehearsals and this could be put in place immediately.
It was discussed to set a weekly subscription for play participants to cover costs of costumes, general and unexpected expenses.  It was agreed to submit this to the AGM.

DVDs
DVDs prices will be set to £5 with £1 going to Neil to cover costs.
Joe asked if the camera equipment was up to standard. Neil replied it was so no further expenditure required.

Raffle Prices
We agreed to have two bouquet style prizes and a pair of tickets as raffle prizes during the year.  The pairs of tickets will be set up on the ticketing system in advance
