Annual General Meeting
Wednesday, 22 April 2015, at 7.30pm in the Orangery
The year 2014 proved to be very busy for the trustees due, among other things, to the number of major developments impacting on the park; 2015 promises to be just as busy. The Conservation Area Proposal Statement for the Holland Conservation Area is due to be re-written as are the Borough Parks Strategy and the Holland Park Management Plan. Major developments are still with us. Trustees must monitor and have a view on all these subjects as well as working with key stakeholders in the Council and community.
Our AGM is an opportunity for members to hear what trustees have been concerned with over the last year, and to learn what is expected in the one ahead. Chaired by our distinguished president, Sir Angus Stirling, this annual occasion is your chance to ask questions and to tell trustees of any particular concerns you have for the park and its management.
The formal business of the AGM does not take long, then we can expect the customary lively and enjoyable discussion. This interaction is appreciated by trustees, especially when there is so much happening in and around the park.
As usual, the AGM takes place during our annual art exhibition in the Orangery, and after the meeting is a great time to view the art exhibits over a glass or two of wine. Please do come and support your trustees, who work hard on your behalf.
