AGM was scheduled for 17th October 2020 but has now been cancelled in line with the Government’s rules applicable to Covid-19
Virtual AGM of the Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.

Listed below are the main items that need a decision from our members taking part in this virtual AGM.
If you approve of the minutes of the last AGM, the Chair’s report and accounts as given on the
Friends website and in this newsletter and are happy with the re-election of the committee officers
and members, you need do nothing more. If you do not get in touch we will take that as your
approval (in this way we can reduce the need to handle and open post and so reduce risk of spreading
the virus).
However if you do not wish to approve the minutes of the last meeting, the Chair’s report, the
accounts or the re-election of committee officers and members then please write to John Trowell,
Secretary, “Lorrimer”, Main Road, Icklesham TN36 4BS’, listing any objections or questions. Please make
sure to enclose your name, address and an email or phone number so we can contact you. You will find the
minutes of the previous (47th) AGM on the Friends website. The Chair’s report on behalf of the committee
is featured in this newsletter. The Accounts for the period 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020 are also
contained in this newsletter.
