Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty on gatherings, the Trustees have postponed our AGM, and this will most likely be an internet based ‘remote’ event without our usual additional activities.

We are sorry that we have to do this, especially as some may not have internet access, but we hope you will understand our options are limited during these unprecedented times.

You may still nominate a proxy to represent you. We hope to hold a separate activities event later in the year. The AGM has been postponed from 26th June to Friday 11th September, hosted from our Office in Kendal at 11am, by a small team.

If this is a remote meeting, to ensure the safety of all, no-one else should try to attend in person. We will provide opportunities to vote during any remote meeting, and to ask questions beforehand.
