    Neil mentioned that the current timetable of weekly operational and development meeting was beginning to feel a little overwhelming and that he was feeling pressured to make sure that something had been achieved by the next meeting at the expense of other work. Graham suggested that one solution to this might be to not attend every meeting. Iain noted that restricting meetings to a (short) time period was helpful in not allowing them to cause too much disruption. Neil replied that while this was in general true, of late the shortness of the development meeting seldom allowed all of the agenda to be worked through. Alastair pointed out that we have finished a lot of projects recently and that this was having a temporary impact on the development meeting agenda.
    There was general agreement that for the moment we should continue the weekly schedule for both meetings, Chris observing that it gave us a chance to hear each other's voices.

  7. Next meeting

    The next meeting will be on Wednesday 17th June 2020 online at 10am.
