1.  Coalition Update

Our members will be receiving their virtual AGM invitations in the next few days.  The AGM is going to be held on Zoom (with dial-in and SMS text relay options) on Wednesday 20th October from 10.30 am – 11.30 am.  This year our board have decided that we will just cover the AGM business – and hope to return to an all-singing, all-dancing event next year. 

We have been out and about at a few events over the last week, including Surrey Pride and a Community Information event held at Bourne Hall in Ewell.  Do check out our pictures on our social media channels!
