NOTICE to Members of HGRA
On Wednesday the 5th May 2014 at 7pm, there will be the Annual
General Meeting of the Hindley Green Residents Association. This
meeting will be held at the Bethel Community Centre, Atherton
Rd, Hindley Green.
Whilst the most of existing members of the committee are willing
to stand for re election, it is necessary for the membership to
be aware that the HGRA Treasurer and the HGRA Secretary will not
be standing for re election.
Also there is a need to bring to the attention of all members
that the majority of the existing committee are elderly residents
and because of this, the continuance of the Association could
be in jeopardy in the near future.
There are therefore, 4 places available on the HGRA committee.
Treasurer, Secretary and 2 other committee vacancies.
The Hgra committee would like to make an appeal to all its members,
that they consider, not only their attendance at monthly meetings
but whether there are any existing members, or interested residents
of Hindley Green that are willing to volunteer to join the HGRA
committee.The most important position to be filled is the office
of Treasurer and Secretary.If there are any existing member or
resident that feels they have the relevant skills to volunteer
for any of these roles, the Association would appreciate it if
you could contact the existing Secretary before the 5th May at:01942
254831 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
