It is obviously not possible to hold any form of normal AGM this year. The FOSC executive committee has therefore decided that we will have a short, essential business only AGM. It will start at 7pm Wednesday 28th October. It will be an online event.
Proxy voting is allowed by the Friends’ Constitution and this year it is encouraged by the FoSC Trustees for this virtual AGM . So if you are happy to support the election of Trustees and Officers listed below, plus agreeing that the membership subscription prices should remain the same, please help us by emailing the Chair at email@example.com saying “please act as my proxy for my vote supporting all the proposals listed on the Agenda for the FoSC AGM”.
Alternatively, if you would like to attend this short online meeting live, please email that you would like to and we will send you a link to the meeting. If you would like to ask any questions, please submit them in advance before 21st October.
The agenda is attached to this email and all other documentation relating to the AGM can be viewed using the following link:

Friends of Streatham Common
I’m on the move from late October 2020, so the Friends are after an individual to keep them in the local spotlight! Someone with a creative flair is very welcome to blow some fresh air into the presentation of FoSC events. Armed with only your mobile phone camera, this is your chance to show off your photo journalism skills and generate images of the Common on its journey through the year.
You will be responsible for the Twitter, Facebook & Website feeds. As a member, [you can join here if you aren’t a member already!] you will be invited on to the executive board to plan and work with exec members on requirements. Meetings are once a month.
Useful skills: Graphics skills in Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign to produce physical posters for the walks and talks that happen throughout the year.
The website is based on a simple WordPress template and needs to be updated with events, members news, related news items that affect the common locally or national items of interest.
Essential: A love of nature, and a commitment to the future-proofing of Streatham Common as a safe, sustainable green-space for all the community to enjoy.
