Annual General Meeting 2018

Annual General Meeting - 2018

The 57th AGM of Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and Members’ Morning will be held on Saturday 27th October 2018, 10am–1pm at Winchester Guildhall, Broadway, High Street, Winchester SO23 9GH.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to our AGM and Members’ Morning at Winchester Guildhall on Saturday 27th October.  Our agenda starts at 10am and finishes at 1pm, with complimentary tea/coffee and cake served during the break.

As well as the AGM there will be:

  • Presentations from the Trust’s Chief Executive and Staff celebrating our exciting recent acquisitions and projects and highlighting how they are enabling us to deliver benefits for our wildlife.
  • A Question & Answer session giving you the opportunity to respond to the presentations and to put questions to myself and the speakers. 
  • The chance to meet other Trust members and supporters as well as trustees and staff. 
  • Our shop which will be selling Trust Christmas cards and wildlife-themed gifts.

I hope you are able to join us; this enjoyable event is a great way to learn more about the work of the Trust and to find out how your membership and support benefits our local wildlife.  It also provides a great opportunity for you to hear first-hand from our staff about the Trust’s work in our counties and for us to meet you in person.

We hope to see you there.

David Jordan

David Jordan OBE, Chairman
