 All,
Apologies for missing this morning - a vomiting baby to attend to, I'm afraid.
I can't wait for a regular timeslot (each week the same) at a decent hour --8am is excellent!

Given the f2f in late October, if we allocate responsibilities for getting that going
clearly enough, perhaps
we don't need the weekly meetings for the month?

Kerry
