PBCG AGM on 13th November

Dear PBCG member

I write to invite you to the Conservation Group AGM on Thursday 13th November at 7.30 pm in the Painswick Church Rooms. Attached is a poster about the AGM. If you are able to display that in your window or on a public notice board I would be grateful. You will see from the poster and the article in November’s Painswick Beacon paper that we have a line-up of experts to talk about, and answer questions on, most aspects of our work in the last year or two – a chance to find out more about cattle grazing, junipers, butterflies etc . With the guidance of Natural England, help from HLS money and under the leadership of David Allott we have achieved a lot in the past year or so on several fronts. This is a chance to find out more and help the committee set future priorities.

All are welcome – not just current PBCG members – though we will of course encourage them to join the group !

The proceedings will start with a formal AGM. We would like to conduct this properly but expeditiously. To that end there are three documents attached which you might like to look at before the meeting : –

· AGM agenda

· AGM 2013 minutes – for comments and matters arising

· 2013/14 accounts (alongside previous years). These accounts are currently with an independent examiner so there may be some changes. The main feature of the accounts this year is the large income from High Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme money – though a fair bit of that was paid out to professional tree fellers for work in Long Quarry.

Annual subscriptions of £5 are now due and can be paid to our Treasurer, David Little, on the AGM night. If you are unable to be there please could you let him have the money when practical (Sunhyld, Tibbiwell, Painswick, GL6 6XX).

The next work party is on the morning of Saturday 8th November – details will be circulated nearer the time – meet at the Catbrain Quarry public car park.

Best wishes

David Bishop

Chair
