Meeting agreed that service proposed from December 2006 was inadequate and bizarre. Meeting agreed that we should (a) publicise existing service, (b) work with existing operator to increase useage, (c) survey and investigate to look for viable alternatives that would be used, (d) lobby to get our alternatives seen / known / considered favourably.
Follow up "Working Group" meeting to consider alternatives listed above and also look to organising ourselves, next Tuesday.
