After much deliberation the Branch Trustees have decided that sadly it will not be possible to hold the Annual General Meeting this year because of the impacts of coronavirus and future uncertainties.
Because of the potential risks of large gatherings indoors, and in view of the extra restrictions in the Bolton area we decided that it was unwise to hold a physical meeting. We did consider if it would be possible to hold an AGM online instead, but felt this would not be accessible by many of our members.
This was a tough decision because we have been pleased to welcome members to previous AGMs to update you on the achievements of the Branch, and give you the opportunity to ask questions and elect trustees.
The 2019 Trustees’ Annual Report and Accounts will be tabled for ratification at next year’s AGM, along with the 2020 Accounts. As there will be no election of Trustees this year all existing trustees will serve one additional year.
If you have any questions or wish to receive a copy of the Report and Accounts please contact the Branch on 01204 521160 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Deferral of the AGM is an option agreed by the National Society and the Charity Commission.
We thank you for your support and understanding in these difficult times and look forward to welcoming you to our AGM in 2021.
