RE: HERBERT COLLINS ESTATES RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION
I am pleased to be able to report that the first Annual General Meeting of the Association was held on 29th October last, which was well attended and as a consequence it was felt that the Association could be formally established.
You may recollect that the Steering Committee distributed a questionnaire before the AGM. The results of which were presented to the AGM and attached to this letter is a summary of that questionnaire for your information.
The proposed Rules and Constitution of the Association were similarly presented at the AGM and were formally adopted. I attach a copy of them to this letter.
As I am sure you will appreciate, to ensure an active organisation the membership of the Association must be developed and I would hope that you will now wish to become a member of the Association. The annual subscription of £3. per member per year was agreed at the AGM unanimously. I am sure you will realise that the Association can only perform its functions properly if it has an adequate membership from the area it covers and is adequately funded.
A number of matters of concern were raised at the AGM and the elected Committee have set to work actively to look into such matters, for example local authority grants/funding; neighbourhood watch scheme; street lighting and liaising with various organisations which might be of mutual benefit.
Your Conmittee will consider any other matter which you would wish to raise and I set out below your street representative who can be contacted by you :
