Annual General Meeting 2014

Thursday 13th November, 7.30pm for 8pm start

The Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 13th November at the Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club pavilion.

The formal meeting starts at 8pm but please do come along from 7.30pm when the bar will be open.

The Agenda plus copies of last year’s minutes will be available in the Seed Store two weeks ahead of the meeting. We will also be posting them on the website.

The AGM is an important meeting which all plotholders are invited to attend. Our acting Chair will give a report on the past year and the annual accounts will be presented. Plotholders can ask questions and give their views.

We will also be voting for the Committee. If you are interested in helping out by joining the Committee please contact David Harnden for more information.
