Our AGM took place on Monday 1st November 2021

in Trinity Hall, Coleman's Hatch at 7.30pm.  


The Secretary opened the meeting and explained that there had been no AGM last year because of COVID restrictions.  In the interim, the committee had lost its venue (Ashdown Park) and its chair (Kit Eustace).  The priority had been to elect a new Chair from the Committee according to the Constitution and Eve James and Anne Kisbee had been duly elected as Joint Chairs.  Those present at the AGM unanimously endorsed this election and a round of applause was heard in thanks.  The secretary then handed over to Eve James as the Chair for this evening.


The Chair in her report explained how the Autumn Show had come about and progressed.  It had made over £5,000, which was to be shared with the Church Committee for their charities. The venue had been very well received and had almost no overheads.  The use of the Church field was welcomed but work needed to be done to make it safer for next year. The Open gardens scheme had been a great success and is to be repeated next year, already with more gardens promised.  This raised £768.

The Accounts were presented in verbal form by the Treasurer, (printing had not been possible).  The Society has more money than last year owing to that raised by the Open Gardens and Autumn Show  (£8349 versus £7665) but we are still not up to the total of £8796 of 2018 owing to the loss at the 2019 Summer Show. More detailed accounts will be provided in due course.

The entire Committee were happy to be re-elected for the next year and this happened unanimously.  Nobody came forward to join when asked by the Chair.

Dates for next year: Open Gardens, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July; Summer show, Saturday 16th July 2022; Autumn Show, Saturday 24th September, 2022.

There was no AOB

Meeting finished at 8.05 pm
