Special General Meeting & Talk on the History of the National Open Garden Scheme

The November monthly meeting was preceded by a Special General Meeting to ratify the decision to close the Society and to agree the dispersion of the Society’s funds that amount to approximately £2500 as agreed at the Special General Meeting on Tuesday 23rd October 2018.

The meeting agreed to ratify the decision at the previous Special General Meeting to dissolve the society.

All members had been asked to contact any committee member if they wished to put forward a suggestion as to potential recipients of the balance of the Society’s funds.  A number of members had done so and all these were considered by the committee at a meeting on the morning of 27th November.  A proposal was put to the membership and after some discussion and questions the list was agreed by a significant majority of those present.

That list is:

Street Methodist Church  £100

Finger Post Project  £200

Friends of Street Library  £400

Friends of Strode Theatre  £400

Gillett Trust (For furthering the display of the fossils)  £400

Merriman Park Community Group  £400

Old War Memorial relocation  £400

The guest speaker was David Moon and his subject was The History of the National Open Garden Scheme (NGS). His talk took the form of a visual presentation of numerous gardens and gave some of the background of the NGS.  He was applauded for the quality of the photographs in his presentation.
