Shall we draft an agenda for the 23rd? We shouldn't try and be too formal but I am conscious that there is going to be a large number of us hence some structure may be useful if we are to get the most of it.

I have posted on the Forest Hill Civic Society thread suggesting that we restrict the attendance at this meeting to the 19 or so people on the list- or else we won't fit into the venue and the meeting will be too big to be constructive. Nothing that happens at this meeting is final or irreversible. There have been few replies to this so I doubt whether many people have read it. Please can everyone note this.

Re an agenda- how about this for starters- its a bit unrefined so please chip in.

7pm-7.30PM. Everyone arrives. Meeting starts prompt at 7.30pm.
1. Introductions.
everyone ( all 19 of us) outline their aspirations for the society, skills they have, and how they want to be involved, ie roles.

2) Structure of Society - appointment of temporary 'officers ie
Secretary ( admin, minutes, collating of paperwork, official posting on etc).
Membership Secretary.
Communications Officer ie how to reach out to the general public, leaflets, newsletters(steady on....)
Planning and design subgroup.?
Traffic and highways subgroup.?
Other subgroups...?

3) Adoption of working constitution.

4) Pat Trembath speaks about the Sydenham Society and its activities- issues arising for the FH Society.

5) Issues arising- ie getting the public involved, establishing membership, setting up a rolling agenda of items to be discussed, date of next meeting, formal launch at Forest Hill day, frequency of meetings, AGM, etc.

6.Date and venue of next meeting and action plan.


Meeting ends at/by 9pm.

Contributions welcome/necessary!

I would suggest moving item 4 before item 2. I think we need to hear from Pat about the experiences of Sydenham Society before we agree on the structure or anything else.

I think it's a good agenda, and agree with Michael's suggestion that item 4 (Pat Trembath) be moved before item 2.

Yes I agree, Pat should speak quite soon at the beginning of our meeting. The rest seems all very good.
