This year our AGM and annual community meeting will take place on Wednesday 7th May 2014.

We look forward to welcoming as many members of the community to the meeting, at 7.45pm for an 8pm start at the War Memorial Hall on Common Road, Chorleywood, WD3 5LN.

We will be able to update you on what we have been doing over the past 12 months and more importantly get feedback from you on your local concerns.

The timing of our meeting allows us this year to host a hustings for the upcoming Parish Council Elections which will be held on Thursday 22nd May along with other District and European Elections.

As an Association we were very aware of the strong views that were felt on both sides of the debate about the proposed Play Area on the common, and many residents engaged with their Parish Councillors over the issue. Whatever your views we encourage as many residents as possible to engage with your prospective Parish Council candidates and understand who is putting themselves forward to work on the Parish Council for the next four years.

As an Executive committee we look forward to welcoming you - so come and join us for a glass of wine and some nibbles.

Treasurer or Hon. Secretary, counter-signed by either the Chairman or Vice-Chairman or by one or two other Executive Committee Members nominated for this purpose by the Committee.
Proposed Rule 13

There will be at least three committee members, including the Hon. Treasurer who are authorised by the committee to make payments on behalf of the Association. Payments may be made by any two authorised committee members unless a payment is less than £100 in which case the payment may be sanctioned by a single authorised committee member if they have approval by email from another authorised committee member.
