Neubauer and Banks need to be changed to being in attendance rather than councillors. Representing Eastleigh Council should have been Councillor Broadhurst. Councillors representing Hampshire Council as nobody.
The minutes are agreed with these adjustments.
Fundraising - Stacey Court-Martin
Stacey Court-Martin, the fundraising officer for Hampshire Cultural Trust, presented a fundraising report for Bursledon Windmill. This campaign is to help the trust raise £40,000 to help with the repairs of the stocks and sails. The campaign will be predominantly community based with local volunteers, will seek to raise £5,000 community fundraising, £5,000 large gifts from individuals and £30,000 from trust foundations. Have been working on fundraising opportunities from other trusts and foundations. Marketing team supported this, with, for example, the digital publication Culture on Call and its social media presence. Hoping to engage with community by asking visitors why they’re visiting and what’s important to them. At the venue there will be more signage around the site such as QR codes, banners, and local artwork. Stacey running a 5k to help fundraise for the Windmill. The trust is setup on a fundraising platform called the Good Exchange, allows people to create their own fundraisers and be match funded with other local trusts. Working on press release for local news, including local Bursledon magazine. Happy to explore ideas with council. Successful application with the Good Exchange and will officially launch digital campaign 19th March by promoting the link. There is some financial support from Hampshire County Council (HCC) but the amounts haven’t been confirmed yet. Fundraising is for repair of wooden stocks and sails but will also need canvass sails. Have spoken to local sail makers and have a quote, current sails are 8 years old and in poor condition.
Action: The Trust have been invited to speak with Bursledon Parish Council, plans for a site visit in June.
Emma Banks, the
community manager representing the Hampshire Cultural Trust,
presented a report on activities at or relating to Bursledon
Windmill. July to October period windmill was open and welcomed
over 700 people. In December work was carried out by HCC to take
down the stocks and sails, were hoping to remove the endless chain
gear but did not have sufficient time. HCC to respond to trust by
end of March about a proposal for funds to be used for repairs in
the next financial year. Funding from HCC and fundraising should
allow to address the next stage of repairs. There was a
commissioned report after stocks were taken down by Windmill
Consultant Luke Bonwick, who suggested
stripping the stocks, assessing the rot
and patching. Currently investigating if this would be more
effective in the long term.
Consideration was given to the Financial
Report presented by Emma Banks from Hampshire Cultural Trust.
Action: Ross Mclean to work with finance team and Deborah Neubauer to draw up an SLA and agree a contribution amount annually.
