Meeting to Discuss the Future of BEG

22nd August 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This is a notification that the committee meeting on Tuesday 22nd August will be repurposed as a meeting to discuss the future and possible dissolution of BEG. This has been on the cards for quite some time with increasing costs, increasing compliance, potential lack of premises – but most importantly, lack of volunteers. I believe that all other problems can be worked around but only with an active committee and wider BEG community who are willing to put themselves forward as active committee members, leaders, training team, helpers for selection, fundraising and so on.

This isn’t the first such meeting to take place (I think it will be the third) – and who knows, perhaps this will be enough to encourage people to step forward where other such meetings have failed.

I would encourage you all to come along, give your views and most importantly, to put yourself forward on a regular basis if you think BEG is worth saving.

Should no way forward be identified, a proposal to dissolve BEG will be put forward which will require a two-thirds majority of those present. The meeting would also decide which charity or charities having objects similar to those of the group would receive any remaining assets of BEG.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday 22nd August at 7.30pm in the Focus Centre in Galashiels with all BEG interested parties welcome.

I hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Rosie on behalf of the BEG Committee
