Great turnout for Emergency General Meeting 17/3/09

Thanks for all who attended our EGM on St Patrick's Day at Wesley Methodist Church.

A great turnout with 50 people showing up to discuss several pressing issues, including the proposed EDF Energy depot behind the tennis courts for at least 18 months.

Some excellent points were raised and a clear plan of action established ahead of the plannign committee to decide the matter. There were also updates on the lottery bid, details of other plans for the green and a summary of the walkabout with council officers in February.

Peter Constable has been elected as association chair, while Martin Thompson is now vice-chairman. Richard Price is treasurer and Jack Grove is secretary.

A strategic document or 'mission statement' proposed by Peter Constable was unanimously approved by the group after line by line analysis by members. This will be useful as a mandate as we continue the work of the JGA this year.

Minutes and the statement will be posted on this website soon.
