Annual General Meeting
Our AGM will take place on Tuesday 12th April 2016 at 8pm. The venue is St Pauls Church Hall, Long Lane, N3. Last year we scheduled into the AGM a plotholders forum which turned out to be a lively debate leading to a number of changes.
Do come along, get involved and participate, put forward and debate any ideas, concerns or questions you may have. Please add this important event to your diary.
