This year’s AGM will be held on Monday, the 18th February, 2013 7 – 9.30pm at St John’s Ambulance Hall, Mildenhall Road, E5. Come along for a review of the past year’s activities, to meet the outgoing committee and other people, to discuss plans for the coming year, to explore visions for the neighbourhood, and the wider area of Clapton, and to vote on the new committee. We’d love fresh ideas and energy (or that of returning people) and it’d be great to chat about how you might want to be involved, and how you’d want to benefit.
