The trust has stepped up its ambitions post-Covid and is putting in place a structure and processes to match.  We in the branch are going to have to up our game and find more volunteers for many roles.

Rod Hacker, our current Chair, is still keen to stand down and a replacement is needed quickly.  

Joining the meeting

The meeting will be conducted by a Google Meet call which allows participants to see, hear and speak with a video connection, similar to other conferencing systems.  Members without an internet connection can listen in and speak by using the telephone number indicated.  The video call will be open from 6.45pm to allow for everyone to get connected before the formal start of proceedings at 7.00pm.  In accordance with the usual etiquette we ask you to silence your microphone except when speaking in order to reduce the background noise.
