News – 27 October 2019

New Constitution

While talk about Constitutions can make the eyes glaze, this one is important. For the first time since the 17th September 1983, we are about to change our Constitution – in part to embrace new legal requirements and also because so much has changed.

All members who are financial and over 18 years of age may contribute and vote on what will be the governing model for the way we operate for many years to come. For this reason there is a Special General Meeting to discuss and vote on the proposed constitution. Details of the meeting are:

  • When – Wednesday 20th November
  • Where – WPH Sports Club
  • Time – 7.30 pm

Please understand that the only business allowed at that meeting will be a motion to adopt the new constitution as submitted.

A copy of the Constitution will be sent shortly and if anyone wants a copy then please send an email to Ross Anderson at here and a copy will be sent to you.

Given the importance of this meeting you are most welcome and in fact, encouraged, to come along and be part of the decision making process on the way we operate.
