You are cordially invited to our 2020 AGM. We will be hosting it on zoom, so you needn’t leave the comfort of your own home to join us.
What is an Annual General Meeting?
An annual general meeting also known as an AGM, is a formal meeting, held once a year and a requirement of our constitution as a charity. We will share what has happened with you through our the last financial year, and what we hope to achieve in the coming year. For more information about AGM’s please check out this link.
It is a time for you, as a member of Southampton Scrapstore, to contribute to ideas of how to take the charity forward and raise any concerns you may have. It is a time for new trustees to step up and join the management committee and for those who have served a term to step down. A new chair person will also be elected.
We need our members support us in order to make decisions, confirm policies and move forward this year. If we do not get enough people attending this event, we will have to hold another one. Last year we had to hold three! We would really like to just have one successful meeting this year with your support.
We ask you to add this date to your diary and contact us to be added to the zoom invitation list. Please supply your email so we can email you all the information you will need to engage at this meeting.
All members must show their card to gain entry, if you have lost your card you will need to contact us at least 2 working days BEFORE your visit for a replacement card to be collected on the day of your visit. No card will mean no entry on that day.
No parking on the forecourt as a health and safety precaution for members queuing outside. Please park in the car park at the end of the estate, spaces numbered 15 are our parking spaces. Alternatively, there is street parking behind the scrapstore.
Only 3 members will be allowed in to the scrapstore at any one time and we are asking that group members come individually. Queuing will be outside, so please bring weather appropriate attire. Please use hand sanitizer before you enter. We are temporarily suspending signing in upon arrival.
We are limiting visits to 15 minutes per person for the first few weeks. Please pay by card if you can – there is no limit on spending for card payments.
Lastly, membership renewals, where possible, are to be completed online please. Renew my membership.
Following us on Facebook is a great way to keep up to date on opening hours.
We are one of the oldest charities in Southampton, and hope to keep providing to the community for another 35 years plus. As a not-for-profit organisation, we will still be facing over heads, if you can help us in anyway, please let us know.
Once we re-open we will be madly fundraising to catch up, we will hold our fabric sale as soon as viably possible – so look out for the date.
If your organisation would like to ‘sponsor us’, please get in touch. We will be checking our emails regularly. If your organisation can share our donate button and if possible – when everywhere reopens – have a donation pot for us, we would greatly appreciate the support.
