The AGM was held on saturday 28th april at the Scout Hut. Here are some highlights from the meeting:
A report on our
activities over the previous year was presented by the secretary, and
the treasurer presented the accounts. You can download the secretary's
report by clicking on this link.
We unanimously agreed
to make changes to BANG's Constitution to make it easier for
Broomhill residents to join BANG, stay joined and join in our
activities. The new constitution can
be downloaded by clicking on this link.
We held a 'Workshop' session to discuss what members think are the most pressing issues in
Broomhill - the things we should focus our limited resources on over the next
year. Lots of excellent ideas were contributed for practical things that BANG could do to help. Download a summary here.
The topics discussed were:
- Making Broomhill a great place to live: (Quiet nights; Safe streets; Clean air; Good amenities; Quality shops)
- Tackling the things that bring Broomhill down (Traffic; Rubbish; Bins; Noise; Disorder; Messy front gardens; Illegal signs) - This was the one that got the most TOP PRIORITY votes!
- Protecting Broomhill's unique Victorian heritage (Architecture; Buildings; Trees; Walls; Railings; Street scene)
- Bringing Broomhill's people together (Vibrant, mixed community; Neighbourly; Generous; Belonging)
will be working on the 'action ideas' from the AGM at our forthcoming
monthly open meetings. Please come along and get involved! (see home
page for when and where)

our Committee for next year (up to April 2013). The committee
