Dear Supporters

I'm looking forward to seeing you at our AGM on Wednesday 30th May at 7.30 pm at Portscatho Memorial Hall.  You'll find the agenda attached with this email.

We've got some important ideas to discuss so come and find out what we're doing.  As always we're keen to meet you so we can respond to your own suggestions and comments.

Following my last update I'm delighted to report that we have a new webmaster, Russell Curgenven.  Russell works in I.T. so our website will be in capable hands.  I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome him and thank him for giving us this essential support.

We still need to find a new Treasurer.  This is becoming urgent as Peter Gane will be leaving Cornwall within the next few weeks.  Peter has sent me this summary of the role:

The principal role of the Treasurer is to ensure that proper records are kept of all receipts and payments, expenditure is in line with the charity's objects and policies and that management and annual accounts are prepared and matched with the bank account, so that trustees and members are kept informed of the financial position.

Since Friends of Pendower is a small charity, the tasks are not onerous and the main requirement is for a logical and structured approach. A finance background is useful, but not essential, and anyone with experience of keeping household accounts and able to use spreadsheets or one of the simple personal finance programs could undertake the Treasurer role.

We have over 750 supporters so I'm sure one of you has these skills, or knows of someone who does.  Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

We also need a Planning Coordinator, so again if you have experience or interest in this field I would be delighted to hear from you.

With all good wishes


Helen Hastings
