Birchington Bowls Club & Tennis Courts
Most of you will be aware that we normally have our Club Annual General Meeting during the month of November. However, due to the unique circumstances created by Covid-19 and the most recent stringent rules regarding social gathering, it is currently impossible to conduct this within the confines of the clubhouse.
Alternative options have been considered such as holding a virtual “Zoom” AGM but believe that this would present technical challenges, be poorly supported and, consequently, be ineffective. As stated in our club constitution the AGM would normally be held during November, but as these are not normal times, it is believed that deferring the meeting until next year (possibly April) is the most sensible course of action, however, should there be any urgent concerns members would like to voice before then, they can forward them to Mark Hinds, preferably by the contact form on the website to be actioned.
The current members of the GPC have already agreed to continue in their roles through 2021 but we do have three vacancies one of which is for Club Secretary. This role must be filled otherwise we will have no club. If you wish to become a member of the GPC please let Val Winch know ([email protected]) by 31st October. If there are more applicants than posts a vote will be taken.
I hope you agree that this is the sensible and safe way to proceed and you will be advised of the rescheduled date for the AGM once it is deemed safe to hold one.
On behalf of the GPC
