Thornton Rust Institute Annual General Meeting

There have been no Committee Meetings in respect of the Institute since last March due to the Covid 19 virus.
In accordance with recommendations of the Charity Commission we intend to delay the AGM until such time that it is safe to do so. At this stage we do not know when this will be.
The constitution of Thornton Rust Institute states that the Management Committee should hold an AGM in March at which the election of officers and committee members takes place. It also states that all residents of Thornton Rust and outlying hamlets who are over 18 are considered members of the Institute and may attend and vote at the AGM. This is clearly impossible during the continuing lockdown.
Accounts for the current year have been maintained and a certified audited account will be available shortly.
We therefore give notice that the AGM will be held as soon as possible when it is allowed by law.

Sue Duffield (Chair) On behalf of the Thornton Rust Institute
