In response to the Coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak, the concerns of several members, and the scale of the outbreak worsening, we have decided with regret to postpone the AGM due to take place on Saturday the 21st March.
We understand that this may disappoint some members, but please be patient – a new date for the AGM will be advised in due course, but only after the current uncertainties have been resolved. At this time, it is the wellbeing of the wider membership and their families which are of most concern, and their hesitancy to attend a meeting in the centre of Manchester, which would also necessitate the use of public transport.
The 2020 AGM will take place on Saturday, 21st March 2019
Time: 3.30 to 4.30 pm. Refreshments from 3.15 pm.
Location: Room F11 on the first floor, Friends’ Meeting House, 6 Mount St, Manchester M2 5NS. Friends’ Meeting House is centrally located and directly behind the Central Library. The nearest Metrolink stop is St. Peter’s Square.
Motions for inclusion in the Agenda should be emailed to the firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 6th March.
