Friends Annual General Meeting

The Lightwoods Friends AGM will take place on:

Tuesday 27th August 2013

at 6.30pm

St Marys Church Hall.

All welcome.

During this meeting we will need to elect a committee to take the Park and House forward for the following year. Many thanks to the outgoing committee members who have worked very hard in the park for the past two years. They are:-

  • Chair Richard Marshall
  • Vice Chair Sophie Tobin
  • Treasurer John Peacock
  • Secretary Marie Marshall
  • House Officer David Yates
  • House Officer Carol Bowsher
  • House Officer Carl Schneider
  • Horticultural Officer Angela Tomlinson
  • Horticultural Officer Paul Peacock
  • Events Officer Jess Langston
  • Youth Officer Julie McKirdy
  • Communications Officer Bob Piper

Of these 2 will not be seeking re election ;-

Carol Bowsher

Carl Schneider

Thank you both. Carol a special thank you for all you help at the beginning with the consultation road shows promoting the park and the friends group.

Now the HLF bid has been successful and after liaising with friends groups whom have had similar funding, the outgoing committee have decided Volunteer Reps covering a number of areas which we feel will benefit the The Lightwoods. These reps will be responsible for taking their own meetings within a particular group then provide feedback of ideas etc at committee meetings. The roles which we feel will cover all areas are:-

  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • House
  • Horticultural/Environmental
  • Events/Fundraising
  • Young People/Playground
  • Older People/Accessibility
  • Education and Schools
  • Volunteers
  • Sports/Skaters
  • Art
  • Communications

Nominations are now sought for any of the posts on the Committee.

Self Nomination

Anyone wishing to sit on the committee needs to self nominate by forwarding their names and position of interest to by 5pm on 16th AUGUST, any nominations received after this date will not be accepted.

If, following the close of nominations it is necessary to hold a ballot, that will be done on the night at the AGM.

Anyone wanting details about what is involved in any of the positions on the committee, do not hesitate to contact me.

We are a proactive committee and do lots of volunteer hours for the betterment of the park. We have numerous events planned for the coming months and on behalf of the present committee, Richard, Chair of Lightwoods Park and House, would like to thank all committee members for the personal time they have given up, and everyone who has given up time either helping out with events or just visiting the park,

Thank you.

Marie Marshall – Secretary
