ANNUAL MEETING 2021

Sunday 7th March, 2pm (via zoom)

Hi, all Lordship Rec lovers.

As we all know it’s been a very challenging year for everyone, and we hope you are well and have been able to get on with things OK.

The Friends of the Rec have been busy throughout the last 12 months (see our fb page below), continuing our activities as best we can. This includes looking after parts of the park (e.g. woodland, orchard field and lake), doing some hands-on maintenance, helping with the Hub (currently takeaway only), reporting repairs needed and liaising regularly with park staff, and promoting the Rec and community action generally. A more detailed report will follow.

Our Annual Meeting will be a chance for all those who care about the Rec to attend to hear and share news and views, and look ahead to the next 12 months – including a discussion about ‘volunteering in the Rec’ and how people can get involved if they wish. We particularly welcome new faces!

So please put the date in your diary.

Best wishes
Caroline, Joan, Nina, Dave, Sally and Catherine

AGM

The next Friends of Lordship meeting will be our Annual General Meeting on Sunday Feb 6th 2pm in the hut by the playground. Due to the extensive restoration work on the rec starting in March 2011, this could be the last time we meet in the hut for some time. It is also the 10th Anniversary of the Friends of Lordship and marks a major turning point for the rec. So please try to come along to the meeting and help make it a good occasion for all of us. As well as all the business we hope to make it a celebration of all the hard work we have done over the past 10 years.

Congratulations to us all!

Bring some food or drink to share if you can.

Best wishes and see you there
