AGM Agenda 2021

Dore Village Society 56th Annual General Meeting

Notice is hereby given that the 56th Annual General Meeting of the Dore Village Society will be held in Dore Old School, Methodist Church Hall or by Zoom at 7:30pm on Wednesday 23rd June 2021 and meeting papers are on our website at These include our annual report and accounts. Details of the venue will be on our notice boards and website nearer the date.

At the AGM we present the Trustees’ report of activities and work undertaken and describe our policies for the work that we do and the way we spend members’ money. We also submit our annual accounts for scrutiny and elect new Trustees to fill vacancies and to replace those retiring or resigning.

At the meeting we need to elect up to six Trustees. There is currently one vacancy. The other five vacancies will arise because one current Trustee will reach the end of her three-year term, Jen Donnelly. She is eligible to stand for re-election and is willing to do so. One Trustee, Keith Shaw, reaches the end of his maximum allowed tenure (12 years) as a Trustee and will also be stepping down from his role as chairman, and Colin Robinson will also be leaving. Two Trustees who have been co-opted since the last AGM will be standing down as co-opted trustees and will stand for election for the first time: Caroline Davies and Tracy Haigh. Our work is defined and governed by our constitution and you can find this at under the tab “Dore Village Society”.

After the meeting there will be a talk by Tomo Thompson, Chief Executive, Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (Peak District and South Yorkshire) and of Friends of the Peak District.
