Dear Members
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: hgra.secretary@yahoo.com

On behalf of Hindley Green Residents Association
Ivy Dickens ( HGRA Secretary)
