  1. Chapel of Reconciliation – legacy is invested in Singapore and will eventually be re-invested to fund maintenance
  2. Shrine Administration – bankruptcy? (but for goodwill of bank); moratorium not effective (shop still placing orders); financial management required (hence a financial sub-committee; Stan Tucker as part-time Administration Officer); auditors consider an 18 month programme to manage debt and finances; Staff structure; Bro. Hawkes to be Deputy Director.
