9. Implications & Proposals for Arrangements
i. Finance: Proposal - to retain temporarily some contingency (£250) to cater for possible needs during the winding-up process. The rest of our funds (together with any residue of the contingency) to be donated to the Salesians to disburse as they wish: to inform them, however, of our steady past support for BOVA; and to indicate our wish that they make some provision (say £750) for the support of our Scottish colleagues at Easterhouse. David Murphy will provide suggestions for the AGM re: current standing orders etc.
ii. Hotel: Proposal - to leave the shields etc. on permanent loan to the Hotel, and to attempt to retain the special overnight price currently available to former students and staff of Shrigley.
iii. Wesite: Proposal - Current members to be able to post final messages until 31 January 2012; then to be frozen but left open for 'public view', with a copy provided in suitable form for the archive.
iv. There are arrangements unique to the UK whereby archives accepted by regional Record Offices are preserved for all time at public expence in appropriate, scientifically-controlled conditions. The Chairman and Secretary & Archivist have conducted positive and successful negotiations with the Cheshire Record Office in Chester, the results of which can be triggered following the AGM. Cheshire would be very glad to accept our archive. Under the proposed arrangements it would be placed on permanent loan: its contents would be professionally catalogued and, where necessary, repaired; and, together with requested copies of them, would be available for reading by members and their families, and by future researchers. Proposal - these arrangements to be formally established. (Note: once established, it would be open to members to deposit further material in the archive, if they so wished).
