Spring 2018 Statement

The Committee and I hope you are all well and looking forward to Easter and the onset of Spring.

Firstly I need to apologise to you for not as yet arranging a celebration for us winning our 5 year battle against Haddon’s plans to build on the Golf Course, but hopefully we can set that right shortly.

The Committee met last week and agreed, that as per sections 36 and 37 of our Constitution* we plan to Suspend the Committee indefinitely, with the option to reform should Haddon lodge another planning application on the site. We would need member approval to do this and as such I propose a Special General Meeting is held on Sunday 29th April 2018 at 14:00 in the Wychwood Village Hall, hopefully this will be fairly swift and then we can adjourn to the Claret Jug on Wychwood Park for a drink or two to celebrate our success.

We are still left with some monies in our accounts and proposals for how we deal with that need to be agreed. Suggestions so far include the installation of some low level fencing on the Village entrance, and other potential weak points, to help with parking issues and to increase security against further traveller invasions. This would involve consultation with Cheshire East, which would be forthcoming. Other options include just keeping the money in an interest bearing account should we need it in the future.

If you have any further ideas, please feel free to let me know, by the end of March, so we can then create formal proposals.

I hope to see as many of you as possible on the 29th April, either at the SGM or afterwards at the Claret Jug.
