AGM 2014

The 2014 AGM went off very well with about sixty members in attendance. To access copies of the draft minutes, the accompanying reports from Helen de Jimenez (the out-going Chair of EAP), Stephen Cole (the Council Allotments Manager) and the Treasurer’s Accounts click on AGM. A new Executive Committee was elected consisting of: Patrick Williams (Brentham) Chair; Helen de Jimenez (Haslemere) Secretary; Dominique van Dooren (Ascott) Treasurer; John Bradley (Blondin), Tony Donegan (Brentham), Andy Doyle (Braund Avenue), Christina Fox (Northfields) and Joseph Mangar (Horsenden). Patrick Williams introduced and led a discussion of the future plans of EAP in which it was agreed that the in-coming Committee would update the objectives of EAP so as to better reflect the strengths of EAP and the interests of its membership. Suggestions for new initiatives and ways of better involving those members who are not on-line were also discussed. The formal business over there were two excellent presentations. The first by John Bradley described the self management system in place at Blondin Allotments and the second by Igor Vaintraube was entitled "Soil Structure and Fertility -How to Improve it".
