Friends Volunteer Saturday 29th April, 10-12am.
Dear Friends, we are asking for volunteers to come out this Saturday morning to do some weeding and possibly litter picking in Victoria Park. Do you have a spare hour or two and keen to help. You’ll benefit from the fresh air, good company, helping our local park and getting some ‘green gym’ exercise.
We meet in front of the Fossil Grove building and get started at 10am. Tools and gloves etc will be provided. All we ask is you bring some lovely Spring weather to cheer us in the tasks. Thanks and looking forward to seeing you then. Convenor FoVP
Our AGM has come round and this year, it will be held on:
Thursday 18th May 2023, 7. 00pm – 9.00 pm at St. Thomas Aquinas, Mitre Road
We will start with a welcome from our Convenor followed by 3 excellent speakers as follows. We’re sure you’ll enjoy hearing their stories; I certainly am looking forward to the evening.
1. Sandra Malcolm: A history of Victoria Park and Surrounds
2. David Webster: Fossil Grove Building Essential Works
3. Steve Nelson: Victoria Park Community Trust Update
We will have a short break so we can get together and exchange ideas.
The AGM will follow with the usual agenda to vote in the office bearers plus other essential points.
Our members input and advice is not just welcome but essential to our society.
The Committee wishes to advise of their intention to have the Standing Order below appended to our constitution:
1) Spending Procedure: for all major Society spending i.e., not petty cash amounts (which can be agreed at a quorate Committee meeting on an ad hoc basis) a spending proposal will be brought to the Committee and a budget agreed. A quote would then be obtained and brought to the Committee for approval. The authorised spending can then proceed. This procedure can be altered for specific reasons agreed by the committee on an item by item basis. Documentation for spending must be made available to our Treasurer.”
Members are asked to consider the above, ahead of the vote at our AGM.
We look forward to seeing you all then.
Convenor of FoVP
