For those who don’t know, we understand Alex de Mendoza withdrew his nomination a few weeks ago leaving nine Members standing for election as a Trustee at the Annual General Meeting at Bishops Lydeard Village Hall on 22 October 2016. Members will have recently received by post all the papers for the AGM (papers are also available online at )

We encourage all Members to look closely at all papers and then to participate as much as possible including “remote” Members unable to attend the AGM in person who can make use of the Proxy Form included in the papers received by post.

And now that the Association has issued to Members the “250 word” statements and skills statements from the remaining nine Trustee nominees, we are happy for discussion here about the nine candidates and their statements, if blog readers wish to do so. Please note we see little point in any discussion here about Mr de Mendoza at this stage. Thanks.
