We held our Annual General Meeting at Lakeside Country Park yesterday (19/09/17). This year, we decided to do things a little differently, and at the AGM we launched our Impact Report video which you can view here:
The meeting was well attended by staff, volunteers, and members of the community alike. The Mayoress of Eastleigh presided over the proceedings. Chair of Trustees Sri Kandiah spoke of the difficulties we face as a sector in light of impending cuts to things such as community transport, and Chief Executive, Jean Roberts Jones spoke of the importance of community, togetherness, and resilience in such challenging times.
New Trustees Pat Statham, Emma Hilton, and Peter Booker were co-opted on to our Board of Trustees. Mehreen Khan who has served for two years, stepped down to become a friend of One Community. The Bobby Jones Award for carers was awarded to Betty Brown for her service to fellow carers over the past twenty years.
Thank you to all those who came, and who were involved in the preparations.
