Belford Community Group Annual General Meeting (2)

Belford Community Group held its Annual General Meeting in the Blue Bell Ballroom on Friday 1st August. A small but very supportive number of villagers were present. Lord Walton (President) in the chair introduced Vice President, William McLaren, Chairman Pauline Tucker, Vice Chairman and Secretary Eric Gassner and Treasurer Kevan Shiell to the assembled company.
In his report, Lord Walton said that he was immensely impressed by the outstanding contribution that the Group has made to enriching village life in Belford. He paid tribute to the work of past chairman, Phil Nicholson and his wife and Trustee Lindsey Nicholson who moved to Wales in March of this year. He also commended the work of the volunteers in the shop, thanked the community of Belford and beyond for supporting the shop, and to Doug Renton and Dennis Cromarty for their work in the Community and Jubilee Woodlands. The chairman then gave her report which outlined the Group's activities and achievements during the past year. These included opening a new multigym, constructing a community greenhouse, an extension to the Community shop, and several donations being made to other village groups and projects. The chairman echoed Sir John's thanks to the supporters of the community shop both in purchasing and donating goods.
Lord Walton thanked Pauline for her comprehensive and forward looking report. The Treasurer gave a detailed account of income and spending. The income for the year April 2013 to March 2014 was almost £51,000. After expenditure this left an end of year cash balance of £34,595 and total net assets including property, fixtures and equipment of £87,734. Following the election of officers, Fiona Renner-Thompson thanked the Community Group for their support of the now highly successful Hidden History exhibition housed in Belford Reading Room. Doug Renton thanked the villagers for their kind donations of plants for the woodlands. Lord Walton ended the meeting by stating the immense pride that he felt, that the Group worked effectively and efficiently and that they contributed to the happy atmosphere of the village.

There have been one or two instances of petty vandalism and antisocial behaviour in Belford of late. PLEASE telephone the police on 101 and let us stop these few thoughtless people from spoiling our village and all of the effort put in by so many to keep it peaceful, attractive and tidy. If the police are not informed then, as far as they are concerned, there are no problems in Belford. You can remain anonymous if you ask to do so but please report these incidents otherwise we have only ourselves to blame.
