Notice of the Annual General Meeting of Love’s Farm Community Centre CIO (Love’s Farm House)

The Trustees and Members of the Love’s Farm Community Centre CIO, working as Love’s Farm House, are hereby convened to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the year 2020-21 on Friday 12 November 2021 at 7.45pm.

Venue: Love’s Farm House, 17 Kester Way, St Neots PE19 6SL

Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Our AGM will be held in conjunction with Love’s Farm Community Association and the bar will be open. There will be an opportunity to sign up as a member on the night, and members will elect the Trustees and Officers of Love’s Farm House during the evening.

There is a requirement for one third of the Trustee Board to step down at each AGM. The following candidates are standing for election as Trustees:

Sian Hatt

Lara Davenport-Ray

The Trustees propose an alteration to the Charity’s Constitution at Section 7 to read:

A charity trustee must:

1) Declare the nature and extent of any interest, direct or indirect, which he or she has in a proposed transaction or arrangement with the CIO or in any transaction or arrangement entered into by the CIO which has not previously been declared; and

2) At the discretion of the non-conflicted Trustees, by majority vote, may be required to absent himself or herself from any discussions of the charity trustees in which it is possible that a conflict of interest will arise between his or her duty to act solely in the interests of the CIO and any personal interest (including but not limited to any financial interest).

Any charity trustee with a conflict of interest, whether or not he or she has been required to absent himself or herself from any discussions in accordance with this clause, must not vote or be counted as part of the quorum in any decision of the charity trustees on the matter.

The proposed amendments are underlined in the text above. A copy of the current Constitution of Love’s Farm Community Centre CIO, where the current text of the above clause can be seen, can be found here.

The proposal should be considered by the Members at the Annual General Meeting.

We look forward to seeing you at the AGM.
