The summary of DWG meeting on Saturday 13th of June


We currently estimate that we are at our disposal ca. 1150 GBP, which is the difference between 5000 GBP overall budget for stalls and 3850 GBP currently devoted to stall holders in TransActing Budgets. That would estimate to briefly 10 additional stalls.
