A sincere thanks to all members of the BRACE WhatsApp Group, our Facebook and Website followers for your support and encouragement as BRACE has evolved from a conversation between people concerned about climate change and conservation to become an organisation that is now an established part of our community. We have started some great initiatives in the last 18 months such as the Community Garden & Repair Café. In addition, we have supported other local events such as the Christmas Fayre, Severn River Trust tree planting and wildflower planting in the verges.
To enable BRACE to move forward in an organised and co-ordinated way, we are setting up a committee to formalise our work. The first step will be to adopt an appropriate constitution and a suitable organisational structure.
After several discussions and advice from PAVO (Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations), we have prepared a constitution which can be found below or a copy can be emailed on request. A virtual Special General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 28th October 2020 at 7pm to seek its adoption. You are all invited to join the Zoom meeting – details of which will be announced nearer the date.
Should you wish to make any comments regarding the constitution, please let us know by Wednesday 21st October 2020.
Once the constitution is adopted, the meeting will become our first AGM and you will be invited to elect a Steering Committee. If you would like to join this committee, please let us know by Wednesday 21st October 2020.
I do hope you will be able to join this special meeting but, if you unable to, we will be pleased to chat to you beforehand.
Our current email address is BRACE.Committee@gmail.com
