Village Hall Management Committee 2020 AGM



In light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation & with regard to HM Government directions and the powers contained within The Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 that come into force from 4 April 2020 we give notice that

The 2020 Annual General Meeting of the Colston Bassett Village Hall Management Committee scheduled to be held on April 29th 2020 has been suspended until further notice.

Several long-serving members of the outgoing VHMC have already tendered their resignations, effective as of the end of March 2020, and it is appropriate to place on record our thanks for the many decades of devoted service that they and many others have afforded the VHMC on behalf of all parishioners.

It is not considered appropriate at this time to attempt to hold an “online AGM”, an alternative arrangement now permitted under the emergency-regulations. This is inappropriate for the VHMC as several (current) members and other parishioners do not have the required IT access. As a result, when we are permitted to gather in groups again, a date for the VHMC 2020 AGM will be announced and all parishioners invited to contribute to the future of YOUR Village Hall.

The VHMC offers 10 nominated positions representing five local groups (two each from; The Church PCC, The Royal British Legion, The Women’s Institute, The CB Local History Group & The CB Parish Council) and six independently elected positions, so plenty of options to get involved…

In the interim please can all enquiries regarding the Village Hall be sent to either VHMC Acting-Chair Cllr Sabina Manea-Nelken (@ Church Gate Cottage) or to CB Parish Clerk Nige Mayglothling (5 Church Gate / 01949 81549).

Many thanks and stay safe.
