Help Improve Our Area

We are looking for local people living in Wingrove or Arthur’s Hill wards to join our board and play a part in making our area a better place to live in.

Anyone aged 16 or over can become a director and sit on the board, “a friendly group” which meets once a month to oversee and lead the work we do in our neighbourhoods.

“We’re particularly anxious to encourage nominations from among women and residents from black and minority ethnic backgrounds”, says organisation chair Nigel Todd.

“Women and residents from black and minority ethnic backgrounds are currently under-represented on the CIC Board and we’d like to put that right”.

It is easy to join. Just fill in a simple nomination form here. The form should be returned to by midnight Wednesday 17th February 2021.

If anyone wishes to check their membership status, or have a chat about the board role, please e-mail or call Nigel on 0191 273 6418.

Formal election to the board happens on Saturday 20 February, when the Greening Wingrove Community Interest Company (’the CIC’) holds its Annual General Meeting at 11am.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the AGM will take place online via Zoom with a link circulated prior to the meeting.

All CIC Members are welcome to attend, stand for election to the Board and vote, but the meeting is also open to friends of Greening Wingrove and Arthur’s Hill as well.

The AGM will receive the Board’s report on our activities last year, as well as the annual accounts. Both the report and accounts will be circulated at the end of next week.
