We very much hope that by mid-May the need for social distancing restrictions will have reduced significantly but as we cannot be sure, we have decided to cancel our AGM, scheduled for May 18th.
We must however continue to follow the rules of the society which include the election of committee members and officers for the coming year and an annual report of our accounts. The AGM is also a time when we ask for new volunteers to join our committee.
I am very pleased to advise that the current committee members and officers are all willing to continue.
Given the current circumstances all the existing committee members will therefore be reappointed for a further year. In addition, to avoid the need for a formal vote, any new volunteers who wish to join this year will be co-opted by the committee.
This year, in addition to the membership subscriptions which cover our annual running costs we received two significant donations. In September a donation from Red Kite Community Housing enabled the purchase of hand tools to use during our litter collections and work parties, and in March, thanks to Cllr Brian Pearce, we received a donation from Wycombe District Council to support the maintenance of the Woodland Walk. We therefore remain financially heathy.
A report of our accounts will be prepared in the usual way by our treasurer, Phil Stagg.
Thank you for your continuing support.
