Hi. Thanks to lots and lots of hard work by Sue Hawthorne and Simon Davies we are now able to vote on whether to incorporate the club – for it to become a limited company.
Please see the rationale for doing so, the Articles of Association and the Bye Laws. These can still be amended and will be reviewed by a lawyer. Please note I am not intending to print copies of these out for everyone for the AGM.
We will be voting on the club becoming limited company.
If you can’t make it please vote by proxy by emailing the club at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nominations for Officers are now open, I will put a sheet up on the noticeboard. Volunteers are always very welcome – if you want to discuss please grab me or another member of the Committee. Various roles are likely to be unfilled.
If you have any resolutions you would like the AGM to vote on please let me know shortly.
We are shocked and saddened to hear that Alistair Collier is missing at sea. He was taking part in a GB Outrigger Canoe Association race off the Dorset coast yesterday, and is still missing. According to media reports, the search has resumed today, led by the Coastguard and involving RNLI lifeboats and the police. Alistair is a valued member of the club and a keen paddler.
I don’t have any further information on the circumstances. We can but hope he returns safely. Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.
