The Minutes of the last meeting
Were read and accepted
It was proposed by Richard Moore and seconded by Jane Pickard that a letter be written to Superintendent Andy Tarrant of the Metropolitan Police, ex Acting Head of Community Safety in Lambeth, expressing our gratitude for the work that he had carried out and wishing him every success in his new post.
There was a report from Lambeth Crime Prevention Panel and news of a DVD recording of the Lambeth Country Show which showed the success of the partnership between the Primary Care Trust, Metropolitan Police, including their Air Support Unit and recruiting section, the London Fire Brigade, the London Ambulance Service, Smartwater, British Transport Police and Victim Support.
Message in the Bottle was ongoing but Jeff Avis reminded the meeting that the scheme needed ongoing funding.
Due to the absence of Ann Orange there was no report.
Implementation of the new officer’s details were still awaited from the bank.
It was proposed by Richard Moore and seconded by Rod Brown that the accounts are adequate for the present accuracy.
Jane Pickard was willing to assist a new secretary but, as last year, was not prepared to be full-time secretary, having performed that role for most of the past seven years. Richard Moore offered to write any necessary letters in the short term.
Membership Secretary’s Report
There were currently 63 members.
Election of Officers
The Chair proposed that the current officers were re-elected and it was agreed.
The Annual General Meeting for 2006 will be held on 10th October and it is anticipated it will be at the same time and venue.
