Garthorne Road Nature Reserve Committee meeting –
There will be a formal meeting to establish a committee it will be held Devonshire Road Nature Reserve on Saturday 27th February at 3pm. At the meeting we will elect the following committee posts; Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Media & Communication and four other Committee members. We will also to agree to a Constitution (which I have two different copies of) and also set the agenda and timetable of work to be carried out at the reserve. As mentioned below and in an earlier post we would also like to establish a rota of people who are willing to open the site once a month If you are interested in becoming a committee member or would be keen to help in other ways, please email the group.
Friends Group off to a successful start
The group was set up by Jess Kyle (Lewisham Conservation) with the help of Ernie Thomason in late 2015 and we had a inaugural meeting on the 23rd January. Plenty of happy people braved the cold winds to join in with a walk around this wonderful site. Jess wanted to say a big thank you to everyone that came and for all the enthusiasm. She have high hopes that we can establish a group and get the site open on a more regular basis. On the day Jess recommended that we start the process by having a open day once a month to help build capacity. If we increase our numbers it will be easier for us to establish a group and become constituted.
