A further meeting is held in February or March each year to consider and approve the annual accounts. Applications are distributed two weeks prior to the meeting to enable trustees to consider them beforehand.


The November meeting usually takes an hour whilst the meeting in either February or March should take no more than 30 minutes.  Minutes of each meeting are distributed to trustees only.
