The 2022 AGM was held on Tuesday 13 December and a fuller report and Minutes will appear shortly.
Highlight of the meeting was a presentation by Josh Leppard representing the Young Carers whom we transport 2 or 3 times each week to attend sessions enabling those involved to relax from caring for family members for a while and enjoy interaction with others of the same age and away from the pressures of school and home. We thank Josh for his time and for vibrantly conveying the enhancements they are making to families in the area.
The meeting also accepted with regret the resignation of two very long serving Trustees – Margaret Claydon who is the last of those involved when the charity was formed in the late 1990’s – and also Chair John Ellis who has led the charity for the last eight years and was involved as a Trustee long before that. The meeting and the Trustees thanked them both for excellent service and undeniable contributions to our well being. Margaret will be continuing to use our services and John has indicated that it is probably only a matter of time before he is also using us!
We have two volunteers to join the management committee and also for the position of Independent Examiner. However we would welcome any individuals who are prepared to assist the committee as we know we could serve many more residents if we could only reach them through improving public awareness. And we always have a need for more volunteer drivers actually driving our buses with full training provided.
