COLOURPOINT REX COATED AND AOV CAT CLUB

NOTICE OF SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING

 

Venue:- Rose Hill Community Centre, Carole’s Way, Rose Hill, Oxford OX4 4HF

Date:- 29th August 2021                                        Time:-  11.00am

 

Dear Member,

 

As I am sure you are aware Mick Coomer, our chairman sadly passed away this spring and with his wife Jill wishing to reduce her involvement, we have lost the main stay of our club.

 

The club has 58 members, but of that 58 only 5 pay a membership fee, the majority 53 are life members and do not pay any subs

Historically, the Club Show has always been very popular and made a profit but with no show last year or this year that source of income has dried up. The show was very much Jill’s baby and its success was entirely due to the effort she and Mick put in, without them the future of the show looks uncertain.

Last year the club paid out over £300.00 on GCCF affiliation fees, delegate’s fees and expenses, and accountancy fees alone, while our total income from membership fees was just £44.00.  

Obviously no organisation can continue in this way which is why your committee have called this meeting suggesting that perhaps now is the time to dissolve the club. This is not an action we have taken lightly and not a proposal that we wish to see implemented but we hope will make all members realise the serious situation the club is facing.   The future of the club is in the hands of you the members, if you come to the meeting with new ideas for driving the club forward and offers to help the club and join the committee the club can be saved.

It is your club please come to the meeting and support it.

It would be appreciated if you could let the secretary know if you intend to attend the meeting. Her details are Gaynor Thompson. 17 Rackenford, Shoeburyness, Essex SS3 8BE. gaynort@blueyonder.co.uk 01702 588239.
