The 26th Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Chorleywood Common will be held at Chorleywood Library on Thursday 30th March 2017, starting at 8.00pm.
The Agenda is below,  click for FoCC 2016 AGM Minutes and FoCCAccounts 2016.
The AGM will include a review of the year by our Chairman, Greg Hill.  The AGM is also your opportunity as members to raise any matters of interest or concern.  After the AGM there will be a talk by Cllr Jane White, Chair of Chorleywood Parish Council, on the Parish Council’s plans for a Nature Trail on the Common.
One Committee member is stepping down this year, and another is thinking of doing so; accordingly there will be at least one and perhaps two vacancies to be filled.  If you think you might be interested in helping with any part of the activities of FoCC, and would like to know more about what membership of the Committee would involve, (or if you wish to discuss anything else contained in the agenda before the AGM,) please contact Greg Hill (gregoryjshill@btinternet.com)
Nominations for election should be sent to Petrea Conway as secretary (petrea2@btinternet.com) at least 7 days before the AGM.
As an added incentive to persuade you to come out, we shall be serving wine and soft drinks during the evening.  So on behalf of the Committee, I do hope you will be able to join us at the Meeting and look forward to seeing you on the 30th March.
