Whilst on the subject of Zoom, I want to remind you about the two forthcoming, 12 hour marathon Marine Surveying International Fest III days being organised and broadcast for your benefit by IIMS. All are welcome to join and we encourage non IIMS member participation too. Monday 30 November is the day for Large Yacht & Small Craft Surveyors whilst Cargo & Commercial Ship Surveyors should join two days later on 2 December. Both days start at 06.00 (London UK time) with one new presentation being delivered on the hour every hour for twelve hours. One low payment secures access to the whole day’s content plus copies of all videos produced, or you can select the video only option if that date, or the time zones, do not work for you.
I thought it might be of interest to bring members up to date with the latest developments following the acquisition of Murrills House as the Institute’s new permanent headquarters earlier this year. Some of the essential work that did not require planning permission has been completed. This included treating infestation in the roof space, adding new insulation in the loft and replacing some damaged roof slates. The work to replace most of the rotten windows and repair the front door requires formal planning approval and the application has been made in the past few days.
