A fairly productive AGM was held on 02.11.21. Full minutes will be posted asap.
Due to weather it has been decided that the AGM will be postponed. We hope to try again for the 2nd of November at 7pm.
Now that the final grass cut has been done, I will be compiling this years accounts for presentation at the AGM, and once approved they will be posted on the website.
The grass contractor did the final cut for this year on 13.10.21. A total of 14 cuts for the year which has been the average amount of cuts over the last few years. Next years grass cutting will be discussed at the AGM.
The carpark repairs have been put on hold meantime. As the residents who attended the meeting earlier this week are aware, the credentials of the proposed contractor turned out to be somewhat questionable and it was decided not to proceed with this particular contractor. Some committee members are in the process of obtaining new quotes and we will inform residents when these quotes are available. It was agreed at the meeting that all residents who have already contributed to the repairs should have the option to leave their money in the association’s account or they may ask for a refund of their money if they so wish.
If you do require a refund please email [email protected] giving your house number, surname, your bank sort code, account number and the approximate date you made your payment originally. If you do not have access to email (which seems unlikely if you are reading this), please pop along and see me at No.9.
Please keep an eye out for anyone going door to door offering gardening services and/or handyman work. We have had an incident in the street where one of our more senior residents was targeted by two men doing gardening work which was followed by a demand for a relatively large amount of money.
Watch out for your neighbours, particularly those who are elderly and possibly more likely to fall for this sort of thing.
If you are needing work done, please ask your neighbours for advice, assistance or a recommendation. Don’t ever engage anyone to do work who cold calls you. There are plenty reputable companies out there who will quote for the work, so that you know what you will be paying and if you think it’s too expensive, you can just say no.
