5 Reports and Correspondence
5.1Treasurers report – £0.49 interest since last meeting.
5.2 Following BT phone consultation it was decided to remove phone from Kincraig. KVCC will object to this given its significant position on major walking and cycling routes and generally poor mobile signals.

Any Other Business.
J Forbes Leith brought to our attention a possible increase in criminal activities locally , targeting empty rental premises . There is also thought to have been Drone use to facilitate this. Oil has been removed from tanks in Grantown.
KVCC plan to contact local press to highlight this issue and also post on KVCC website and facebook page.
