Under Matters Arising on the Agenda, the Chair raised the following proposals to further the Resolutions made at the previous AGM in 2016:

Proposal 1
Freegle introduces a deadline for getting rid of Yahoo Groups for the main Freegle groups (i.e. remove Yahoo from our list of viable platforms).

Edward clarified that this means:
We should remove Yahoo + FD + TN and Yahoo + FD as viable options which means that such groups must be FD + TN or just FD. We would work with such groups to help them make the transition.
