2020 General Meetings
Open to all members and non-members, our regular meetings are a chance to meet the rangers and committee members and find out what is happening in the Parklands. We usually have a guest speaker and this is always very informative. Once a year this meeting is the AGM and gives you the opportunity to vote on proposed rule changes and elect officers for the next year. Meet in the Education Centre (next to the Ranger's hut) at the end of Separation Street. Meetings commence at 7.30pm.
Dates for 2020: (all details are provisional and will be confirmed nearer the dates).
Tuesday 31st March - General meeting with a focus on building resilience into the Parklands for a drier climate.
