East Deane Branch AGM

East Deane AGM Oct 25th 7pm – 900pm at Ruishton Village Hall meeting room ( just off the A368 J25).

 To all East Deane members – an early date for your diary.

 We should like to update you all regarding our AGM in Ruishton Village Hall Meeting Room on Friday Oct 25th at 7pm. (The meeting room is to the left of the main hall close to the recreation ground). Parking available.

 An agenda will be forwarded nearer the time but it is hoped that members in the villages of the former Taunton town branch area that are similar in character to our own more rural area, will feel keen to join us. This has been agreed by the Executive and is due to be formally agreed at forthcoming branch AGM.

 Please respond to our current secretary about your ability to attend on Oct 25th. when she circulates the invitations and agenda nearer the time. Refreshments will be served and a short talk will precede elections for Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and any other positions that people wish to develop within the branch. The talk will be on climate change by the Portfolio holder within the new Council Peter Pilkington.


 Cilla Owen

 Acting Chairperson East Deane Branch.

Annual General Meeting and Buffet Dinner with Sir Ed Davey

Annual General Meeting and Buffet Dinner with Sir Ed Davey

Please put this date in your diary, it's the biggest event in the Taunton Deane Lib Dem year.
Although it may sound a long way off, you don't want to miss out.

As last year the event will be held at the Somerset County Cricket Club Ground. However this year there will not be complicated seating plans, there will instead be a much more informal HOT Buffet, which will have a wide choice of options including vegan and vegetarian.

The AGM will start at 6.00pm (and is open to all members) and the buffet at 7.30pm. (members and guests).

Sir Ed Davey has agreed to come as our guest speaker. Ed was Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and later Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. He says his proudest achievement as an MP was to have led the policy to secure a massive increase in renewable electricity in the UK which doubled under the coalition and put the UK on track to beat the 30% target by 2020. He is currently competing against Jo Swinson to become the new leader of the Liberal Democrats.

Tickets are are currently £32 for members and guests (the price will increase after 30th September to £35). We have student/youth tickets for those under 26 which will be held at £25.
