Special General Meeting
The Committee feels that our Rules as currently drafted are no longer entirely compatible with our obligations to preserve the amenities of Chorltonville. We have therefore scheduled a special general meeting to consider some relatively minor changes to those rules.
We have decided to do this via an SGM now rather than at our next AGM because as the rules currently stand we cannot hold an AGM remotely. AGM’s must be held by the end of March, and you will be aware that we have not held an AGM for 2 years now because of pandemic restrictions. We need to create arrangements that allow us, if circumstances dictate it, to hold an AGM by remote means to enable us to operate within our constitution.
You should receive a hard copy of the proposed changes to all households, but in summary they are:
1. Replace the term “Chairman” with “Chair”
2. Update the rule covering our banking arrangements to allow for electronic banking
3. Allow the Committee to run an AGM by remote means if circumstances require it, although in person meetings remain preferable
4. Remove the requirement to deliver a hard copy of the rules to every household, replacing with a requirement for an up to date version of the rules to be published on our website
The SGM will be outside, because at the time of writing it is not possible to book a suitable venue with any degree of certainty. We will aim to have some gazebos on standby in case it is raining. We have attached a copy of the proposed new text for the rules, and you can if you wish compare this with the existing rules which are available for review on our website http://www.chorltonville.org/management/rules-and-regulations.php
If you cannot or do not wish to attend on 19th September, but do have comments on the proposed rule changes please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Green Waste Dumping
It has been pointed out to us that people have been dumping green and garden waste on the land opposite the entrance to the football club. This land is private and does not belong to Chorltonville, the football club or the council.
We wanted to make it clear that no arrangement to dump green waste has been made between the Committee and the owners of this land.
Our advice is therefore that no such disposal should take place unless you have reached specific agreement to do so with the landowner.

Chorlton & Didsbury foodbank appeal
St Barnabas at the end of Hurstville Road is one of the 3 distribution centres for Chorlton & Didsbury foodbank (part of the Trussell Trust)
It operates between 11am and 1pm on Fridays.
There is an appeal for donations to this and to another foodbank operated by Barakah Food Aid also based in Chorlton.
In order to support as many people as possible during these difficult times, some Hurstville residents would like to try to support both organisations on an ongoing basis. To facilitate this, there will be boxes for donations outside specific houses on Hurstville Road (26 & 17) each Friday. If you’re able to pop an additional item into your weekly shop and are able to contribute, then it would be greatly appreciated. If you are self isolating, Hurstville & Redland will be scoured for donations left on doorsteps which will then be split 50-50.
Donations will be taken up to St Barnabas at noon each Friday. Delivery to Barakah will also be weekly.
A list of donations they are desperate for:
- Long Life Milk
- Long Life Fruit Juice
- Rice (500g and 1kg packs)
- Individual toilet rolls and individual bars of soap. We know these are in very short supply for everyone.
- Other donations of tins and non-perishable food items are also gratefully received.
We are all finding the current situation difficult, but the more vulnerable are finding it even harder.
Anything you can donate would be welcome.

Owners AGM 2020 cancelled
After careful consideration in light of recent government recommendations, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Chorltonville AGM due to be held on 29th March.
Under normal circumstances, the levy for the year is voted on and set at the AGM. As this will not be possible, the 2020 levy will be kept at last year's rate.

We have had quite a lot of reports of inconsiderate and sometimes dangerous parking over the last few weeks, with contractors and visitors' vehicles parked on kerbs and verges or on some occasions parked opposite residents' parked cars making it difficult for vehicles to pass between.
Every verge and kerb repair necessary makes it a little harder to avoid levy increases.
We are really grateful for reports of damage and where vehicles are identified we do try recover costs. Committee Members do their best to tackle parking which might damage verges or kerbs, but our resources are limited. Please download our "please don't park here" notice which we encourage you to use if you find vehicles parked on verges or kerbs.
