Much discussion about ‘chair’ finally decided to ask the Bishop.                                                          

(2) Lots of discussion about being non – political and issue led and the need for clear statement

(5b) Lots of discussion about pre organised questions. Judith has a list she prepared. Mike, Steven John, Melanie and Marion took some ideas away to work on.
