7. Menstrie Matters

There was a delay in the printing of the current issue and the printer is going to give us a price for the printing before the next issue is due. £700 has been paid for this issue. LM is going to review the printing and look at other options in January: Stirling University or Falkirk Council. It may be that we will have to scale back the colour to the front and back pages depending on the cost.

The next issue will be in February 2015.

The correspondence was read and actioned as necessary.
