Annual General Meeting
The Annual General meeting is the yearly occasion when the Committee reports to the members on the past year's activities and finances, and takes their advice on future plans. The AGM is held in November/early December, and is followed by refreshments and a quiz, Gardeners' Question Time or other entertainment. There is no charge for members to attend.
Constitution (amended Mar 2016)
The 2019 AGM was held on Friday 29th November.
2020 General Meeting
At the 2019 AGM, the majority of the Committee stood down after many years' service. The new Committee felt unable to go ahead with the 2020 Spring and Summer Shows; they hoped to reinstate them in 2021 (of course, Covid then intervened...).
A General Meeting was held on 21st February at which a good number of members made their views known. There was a strong feeling that the Shows should not be abandoned; various other ideas were also discussed. The committee said they would email all members with their proposals in the near future, and then probably convene another meeting to obtain feedback.
Unfortunately the majority of the new Committee resigned shortly after the General Meeting. This means that not only the Spring and Summer Shows, but the Society itself, could collapse. So if you feel these long-established features of village life are too important to lose, the community needs your help! Please attend the 2021 Annual General Meeting on 12th November, both to give your views and - importantly - to offer your help.
An open drop-in session was held at the Village Hall on Sunday 5th September. Numerous members and non-members came along to share their views on what they would like to see, and how they could help to make it happen; more people have spoken to David separately.
If you haven't yet said what you think, you can give your views here. A summary of the responses will be published before the AGM.
