If your Council would like to bind its Minute Book you do have a choice in the ways you can do this. Leather binding is surprisingly affordable and looks great! Jarrolds don't do this. Try Pear Tree Binding, 173 Unthank Road, Norwich. It's the Colman Hospital end of this long road. Tel 01603 501077. They are open office hours but closed at lunch time.
Just make sure your Council has told you what colour binding they would like! My Council chose dark green.
