The AGM will be held at the Education Centre at Batchworth Lock on Monday 19th of June at 8pm. I do hope that you will make every effort to attend.

Parking can be found in Church Street, Moor Lane and the Tesco car park, all of which are a few minutes’ walk from the Lock.

We encourage non-members to attend although, of course, they are not able to vote. Formal notice and the agenda etc. will be contained in Independence which should be with you in the next week or so – can you help deliver to a dozen or so houses near you? We are short of members to help with distribution so please let me know if you can spare half an hour or so to help.

If there is already someone in your road delivering then we have many roads which will be close to you where we do not have a road rep at present.

Your Committee have decided to reduce the size of Independence to A5 from 2024 which is easier to post through letter boxes and will be the same size as other local periodicals. You will still be able to print off in A4 size if you want to from the website.

AGM – new location!

This will be held on Monday the 18th of July, 8pm at the Conservative Club in Bury Lane, WD3 1DT.

The Agenda and other papers for the AGM are in Independence.

Last year we altered our constitution to appoint Vice Presidents for life rather than electing them every year and during the evening we will be presenting our life vice presidents with a certificate to note the fact that they have been so honoured.

We still elect our President every year.

Those being presented with a Certificate, having been elected at last year’s AGM, are Bob Templeman (who is still a serving Committee member) Tony Berry, Brian Morgan and Peter Crispin. This year the Committee will be commending to the membership Peter Waters, our immediate past President, who will also receive a presentation to mark over 40 years’ service to the Association and the Community.
