Clissold Park User Group AGM and public meeting: Saturday 11 March 11am
Our Annual General Meeting will begin at 11 am in Clissold House. The group’s main roles will be taken by CPUG members for the coming year. The group Officers are by election. The posts elected for the year are: Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Minutes Secretary and Treasurer.
Nominations for some of these have been made but further nominations are welcome before or at the meeting. Our current Chair, Caroline Millar, is stepping down and will not be standing for re-election.
Group officers work together to take up issues and suggestions made by park users with the park management team, Hackney Borough Officers, Councillors and the local community. We vary the functions of each role to suit who is in them and what the current issues are.
We are keen to involve people who have not taken an active role in the group before and we will make sure you get all the support and advice you need.
There are also roles for representatives of interest groups in the park which are open for nominations before and at the meeting. These include: dog walkers, older park users, park history, biodiversity, children and families, runners/joggers, skaters, cyclists, sport, events and fundraising. Reps with an interest in other issues are welcome to put themselves forward.
None of these roles take up a great deal of time over the year, but they do play a really important part in maintaining CPUG’s contact with and repr park users and representing their views. Self nominations for all posts can be made (or by others with permission) in advance by email if possible, or at the meeting.
Please email us with your nominations or if you want to know more about what is involved. We’d be very happy to talk to you about what is involved.
Our usual bi-monthly meeting for March will follow the AGM and will finish by 12 noon.
WE ARE VERY PROUD OF OUR PARK AND OF WHAT THIS USER GROUP HAS ACHIEVED FOR IT OVER THE YEARS, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE COMMUNITY AND HACKNEY COUNCIL. IF YOU LOVE IT TOO YOU CAN HELP TO MAKE SURE THAT ITS FUTURE WILL BE JUST AS BRIGHT.
SEE YOU AT THE MEETING NEXT SATURDAY!
