Notes on the Annual General Meeting 2012

By Alison Stott

 

 

Condensed Minutes of the Annual General Meeting  of Hampshire Mills Group held at Whitchurch Silk Mill on 13th September 2013.

Members arrived on a rather rainy evening and were able to admire, and possibly buy, all the many things displayed in the shop at the Silk Mill before going upstairs to the first floor for the meeting; the café was open so that members could buy refreshments before the meeting began at 7.30.

The Chairman, Andy Fish, welcomed everyone to the mill and thanked Whitchurch Silk Mill for allowing us to hold our meeting here tonight.

Minutes of the 2012 AGM were agreed to be a true record and signed.

Chairman’s report.   The Chairman thanked the Committee for all their hard work throughout the year, without which the group could not run.  He did not pick out anyone in particular as the whole committee works hard to ensure the group prospers.   Book 1 of the “Mills & Millers of Hampshire” has  been reprinted and the last volume, Book 3 in the series is now available.   He thanked everyone who had given time surveying, photographing, searching records and documents to make the series of books so interesting.

There has been some restoration carried out by the Mills Group over the past year, namely cleaning and painting the turbine control gear at Shears Mill, Bishopstoke, which is now inside the new building; maintenance at Hockley and Longbridge Mills and some fine locksmithing to make a new key for Headley.

Secretary’s report.    The Secretary, said that sending out our Newsletters electronically had been the greatest help – she now only sends out about fifty copies by post.  This keeps the costs down dramatically.  

Membership Secretary.   Mick Edgeworth said that we have 131 members which is an increase; 50 single, 36 couples, 8 corporate and one honorary. Mick was thanked for all his hard work.

Election of officers. Sheila Viner is giving up her editorship of the Newsletter after the Christmas issue and she was warmly thanked by members for her five years as Editor. Ros Plunkett has offered to take on the Editorship and is co-opted onto the Committee. Carol O’Shaughnessy, who has taken Committee Meeting minutes for some years but will no longer do this, was elected to the Committee, proposed by Andy Fish and seconded by Alison Stott. The rest of the Committee remain unchanged.

The AGM finished at 9 p.m. and was followed by a General Meeting.
