Website and Newsletter Group AGM 2 Feb

The Annual General Meeting of the Slingsby Website and Newsletter Group will be held on Wednesday 2nd February, most probably at 7.30pm (this time to be confirmed). We expect this to be an online meeting held by Zoom, since not all our Group members are able to be in Slingsby.

Residents who read the Triangle or follow the village website are welcome to attend.

We’ll be reporting on a second rather challenging pandemic year and electing the members of our committee.

You will have the opportunity to give us your feedback and ideas, and help us as we begin to look forward to a new era with a new website team.

If you wish to join our AGM, please email [email protected] in advance and I will then provide more information and the necessary link.

Website and Newsletter Group seeks Treasurer

The Slingsby Website and Newsletter Group is currently in search of a Treasurer.

No specialist knowledge is required, although a familiarity with spreadsheets such as Excel would be helpful. An early applicant will receive a full handover and may be offered training if required.

The Treasurer maintains a record of payments and receipts, arranges payment of bills and invoices, provides the Group with quarterly updates on the financial position, and prepares the End of Year accounts for the Group.

The system we use is well-embedded, has been improved by our outgoing treasurer, so it should be straightforward to slot into the role. There is no requirement to attend meetings although you will be most welcome to join the team when we begin to meet again.

If you would be prepared to carry out this task, or know someone who might be interested, we would be very grateful if you could get in touch by email to [email protected] or by ringing Jon on 01653 628396.

The job will not take up much of your time but it is important since you will be helping to ensure that the Slingsby Website and Newsletter Group continues to provide our community with the village website and the Triangle newsletter.

Another SWaNG AGM, another year older…

The Slingsby Website and Newsletter Group held its 2019 AGM on Wednesday 27th November. We are 9 years old. The meeting, held as usual in the warm and convivial Grapes Inn, was well attended and very productive. We reported on another successful year. The meeting welcomed a new treasurer and elected the committee. It was good to listen to feedback from a range of residents and get some ideas for the future. Our thanks go to them and of course to all the team at the Grapes.

The minutes of the AGM together with all the reports which were submitted can be found on our website here.
