Don’t want to be a Debbie Downer but agreeing to a meeting (virtual or otherwise) and actually going through with said meeting are two different things .
Fingers crossed this is the start of better things but the pessimist in me is not confident.
You never know. Things have moved on a bit lately. I believe everyone has internalised the fact that as joint owners we're all stuck with each other and that's not going to change so we need to work with each other so we're happy for the museum to display our hard work and they're happy with us floating their wreckage - plus, it's about time we got back on with the restoration so where's the sense in delaying any longer? Let's get it done.

Evening all
I have some more positive news. The Trustees and myself have agreed a date of 5th November for an online Zoom meeting to find a mutual way forward. We have an agenda sorted and although it may be on the 5th I’m not expecting fireworks but I am expecting solutions and positivity from all quarters. As we say on the Project ‘There’s no such word as can’t’.
Bangers!
You must have known I was coming!

As it happens, I'm not going.
Apart from being asked for (and offering) an opinion on one specific point I've left it to Jordan and Paraffin Pete - both total professionals more than capable of running a meeting.
My desk has new and exciting things on it at the mo so I'll be head-down until the guys and the trustees plan a route forward. We will, of course, let you know how it all goes ;) .

Best of luck with the meeting chaps, on what I think, would have been the night of the annual K7 dinner during Records Week.
