Sorry to hear of the bank woes, that sounds like a nightmare. Is the space able to meet its commitments in terms of monthly bills for rent, electricity, server, etc?

We’re hopeful the coop account will be sorted soon, and Gocardless are already paying into it. Bob has kindly agreed to make up the rent and bills until we’re all sorted though.

The thankful fact is that we’re ‘good for the money’, just can’t access it.

It’s come to our attention that the original Elections document stated the four vacant seats & retiring board member Ellan’s seat would be available. The Board will honour this statement published at the start of the elections period.

Therefore five seats will be elected at the end of today, with results being announced tomorrow. Once announced this will mean the board comprises six members in total.

The minutes will be updated. Apologies for the confusion, the board have little involvement in the elections process.

Reminder today is the last day to vote.
