Annual General Meeting – Monday 24th February 2020 – click here for formatted version

SOS Mission Statement: To preserve the beauty and tranquillity of St Osyth for posterity. To safeguard the local wildlife and the natural environment. To ensure that there is no overloading of local facilities such as doctors, the school and other local amenities. To prevent further congestion of existing roads and the village centre. To oppose any housing development within St Osyth which would affect any of the above. Annual General Meeting: SOS started up ten years ago, propelled into existence by the proposals for extensive building developments in the Priory.  During those years we have attempted to fulfil our Mission Statement as above.  We started with a large committee but, unfortunately, due to the passage of time and the onset of ill health we have lost many of our committee and we are now few in number.  Consequently, unless we recruit new committee members we are contemplating standing down so this may be our last AGM.  This will be unfortunate since there are still impending development proposals which will affect our village.  If anyone is prepared to join the committee, please come forward.  We meet approximately once a month on a Monday evening. The meeting will be held on Monday 24th February in the village hall annex starting at 7.30.  The agenda is given below. AGM Agenda Introduction by Chairman. Minutes of Previous Meeting – Monday 12th March 2018. Matters Arising from Minutes. Report of Treasurer and Presentation of Audited Accounts. Report of Secretary. Report on Fundraising Activities by Vice Chairman. Consideration of Resolutions. Resignation of the Current Committee. Election of Executive Committee for the coming year – Chairman,...

St Osyth Annual Village Meeting (click here for full formatted version)

SOS attended the annual village meeting held on 10th April 2019 along with many other local organisations.  Clive Gowers, vice chairman of SOS made the following report: Over the past year we have had to spend a lot of time fundraising, but we must not forget what SOS is all about.  Our secretary David Smith keeps watch on the TDC web site for any new developments that might harm our village.   As we are still committed to our mission statement, I would like to remind you all what it is. To preserve the beauty and tranquillity of St Osyth for posterity. To safeguard the local wildlife and the natural environment. To ensure that there is no overloading of local facilities such as doctors, the school and other local amenities. To prevent further congestion of existing roads and the village centre. To oppose any housing development within St Osyth which would affect any of the above. At the start of the year we had a deficit of approximately £50,000 so a lot of fundraising had to be done to reduce this.  We had two dances. a quiz night. garage trail sale, a garden party.  The Rotary Club of Clacton-on-Sea organised a race night and Steph Smith a wine tasting quiz.  I would like to thank everybody who helped run these events and everybody who supported them.  A special big thanks go to Sonia Grantham and the Parish Council who produced a letter for every household in the Parish explaining the situation SOS was in and what had caused it.  I would like to thank everybody who made a contribution so...
