Was this a public meeting? How many actually constitute a 'good turn out'? Were accounts presented? Is there a constitution?Robin Orton wrote:I went to the AGM of the mosaic project this morning. Good turn out and a very positive discussion. I remain convinced that this project has a lot to offer our local community.
This sounds remarkably similar to the figures given earlier in this thread, which didn't add up then, and are unlikely to add up now.Robin Orton wrote:We were shown pictures of the already completed roundels and preliminary mock-ups of all but one of the planned ones. The one still being thought about is hoped to be something reflecting modern Sydenham's social and cultural diversity - local schools have been asked to come up with some ideas about how best to do this.
As I understand it, the total cost is estimated to be about £50,000 of which about £35,000 has now been raised. Various fund raising events (including carol singing at Christmas) are being planned.
Robin Orton wrote:I made the point at the meeting that I thought the project would benefit by having a rather more accessible presence on the web. I think the problem may be a lack of the necessary expertise amongs the organizers. But if anyone wants to help in any way, and doesn't know how to get in touch with the organizers, please PM me.
Members of the committee earlier this year are now in the public domain, and contact details for three of them can be found on the SydSoc website.
Why the scare quotes? Do you also have reservations?Robin Orton wrote:(I am a 'supporter' but am not on the committee.)
