A Post AGM Witter

Well gentle reader, another year, another AGM and another Annual Development Plan. Thank you to those who attended what proved to be a successful evening even if the projector failed for the second year running leaving a fascinating powerpoint presentation of your work, unshown!

Pam Ormerod and Ben Parkin both felt unable to stand again for officer’s positions but we’re sure you’ll join us in extending our grateful thanks for all they’ve done during their time in office.

Lynn Smith was voted into a new position of Administrative Officer, Roger Roundell is our new Litter Officer but the Gardens Officer position was left unfilled at the end of the evening. However, we’re pleased to announce that this position has now been filled by Anne Dixon. We wish them all success in their roles as they help drive Civic Pride forward over the coming year.

The evening closed with a heartfelt vote of thanks by Alyson Barnes (Leader of the Council) for the tremendous effort our volunteers have expended (and continue to expend) to transform the area.

…and so to this week.

Tuesday 19th. 9am. Keith, Roger R and Jo H are intending clearing the riverbank by LIDL but I’m sure extra help around the area will be welcome. Approach via Markross Street but no lone workers on the riverbank please, for H&S reasons.

Thursday 21st. 10am. Meet Hurst Lane end of the path from Alder Grange to Hurst Lane. Gardening for certain but litter pickers will find plenty to occupy them if they head to the bushes along the South side of the cemetery. Don’t forget to bring your mug for Auntie Lynn’s excellent coffee (is there no end to this lady’s talents?)

Friday 22nd. 8pm. Buffer Stops for good company, badinage and free beer (Chris will be paying)!

Hope you enjoyed a rather more staid Wittering this week but if not, relax, Blom will be churning out yet more gibberish next week!

Regards

Roger
