Notice of AGM & Information Evening at The Boat Hall

Invitation to Information Evening at The Boat Hall
We would like to invite you to attend our AGM and Information Evening on Wednesday 24th October.
We’d like to use the evening a way to keep you informed of any happenings at the Hall, including new designs for upgrading the kitchen and engaging in discussion about them, opportunities for volunteering and fundraising, as well as getting to know each other a bit better over a glass of wine, and some cheese and biscuits.

Doors will open from 7pm to give you a chance to have a look at the designs and read about upcoming plans. The AGM will start at 7:30pm and will last approximately 30 mins, after which we will open up discussions around the room about any concerns or changes that might want to be considered.
We look forward to seeing you there!

The Future of Boat of Garten

Boat of Garten and Vicinity Community Council (BOGVCC), together with the Community Company, Community Hall, Deshar Parent Council and the Parish Church, are currently working together to review and update the Boat of Garten Community Action Plan (CAP), which was last undertaken in 2014.

The main objective of the CAP review is to hear the views of residents and businesses in the Boat of Garten and Vicinity area, on how they would like to see the community developing over the next 5 years. The updated Boat of Garten CAP will make up a significant part of the priorities and aims of the Community Council, Community Company and Community Hall and by association the whole village for the next few years and is therefore an important event for the Boat of Garten community as a whole. Once the CAP is agreed, it will form a key part of all of the community groups’ agendas.

To find out how YOU feel about living / working in Boat of Garten, we have put together this survey, which will only take a short time to complete. Click on this link to start the survey.

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/3C9T7W5

Please can you complete the survey by Monday 26th March 2018.

All of the survey responses will be put together and presented at the community’s Big Conversation: The Future of Boat of Garten, where those attending will have the opportunity to hear what everyone else has said, discuss the issues and vote on their top priorities for the village.
