The years seem to pass ever more quickly quickly and its now time for our 3rd AGM!
The formal notice and full agenda will be sent out on the 8th June but this mail is to allow you to get it into your diary early. The meeting will take place on Thursday 23rd June at the Seven Stars and commence at 7pm.
All members of the management committee must retire at this AGM under the transitional rules. All but two of the management committee intend to stand for re-election.
Anyone who wishes to stand for election is invited to notify a member of the management committee by Monday 21 June 2016 and to submit by that date a short statement which will be circulated at the AGM.
Is it really 3 years since the Villages got together to Save the Seven Stars? Certainly doesn’t seem that long ago…and yet it seems that Matt and the team have been there forever…in a good way of course!
As you will have seen from Matt and Charlie’s various emails, the Pub celebrates its 3rd Birthday on Friday April 1st (no – its not an April Fool!) and I know many of you have booked in for an evening of fun and frolics.
For those of you unable to join in the Festivities on Friday we hope you will take time out to visit the pub over the coming couple of weeks…its only with your support that it can continue to be such a success.
For those of you that have not been so regular over the last couple of months you will find that the work continues to keep the pub in tip top shape and able to welcome everyone in a warm and friendly manner…
- All of the inside has been repainted in colours that I am reliably informed are “Card Room Green” on the woodwork and “Stoney Ground” on the walls…thats way above my pay grade I’m afraid!!
- And outside all of the rendering has been removed and is being reapplied and repainted…a nice fresh face for summer!
- In addition to this we have a full schedule of ongoing maintenance to ensure that the fabric of the building is maintained in tip top condition.
So…I hope you will be able to visit the pub and raise a glass to its ongoing success…3 years is a real milestone…lets hope for many more!
As you will all know if you have seen Charlie’s email circular, BNCS has decided to invest in new furniture for the Barn eating area…exciting times!!
To accommodate the new we need to remove the old!
So, as a Committee, we felt it was only right that we offered first opportunity to Shareholders and regulars in the pub….that is, subscribers to this email list.
All we ask is a donation for the furniture you would like to take. We are suggesting £20 for a large table, £15 for a small table and £2 for a chair. So what do you need….
- An extra table to put in the garage and pull out when you have more house guests that you normally cater for!
- A garden table
- Some additional chairs to go in bedrooms
The usage list is endless…but the date for all this furniture removal is a challenge!
We know the new furniture is due in the next week or so but we don’t know the exact date as yet. The plan is that I will email you again once everything is confirmed and we will set aside a weekend morning for people to come to the pub, make a selection, make their donation and take the furniture away.
So, for now, have a think about what you may want…by all means check out the numbers available with Matt and the team….and keep an eye open for my next mail when I will let you know the exact date that the furniture will be available.
