KICA Planning & Committee Meeting – 29-04-13

The next Wakes planning meeting has been arranged for Monday 29th April at 7.30 p.m. in the Village Hall.  Apologies for clashes with the choir, could choir members please find ways to stay in touch.  Please search through the attachments for information about who is doing what.  ‘Wakes plan’ is the general work and Wakes week, ‘Wakes day plan’ is specific to Wakes day.

At   At the meeting on the 15th we also selected new KICA officials:  Jeremy Butt – Chair,  Sarah Morrison – Treasurer, Irene Dougan  – Secretary.  We did this as a matter of urgency to create an official body to oversee Wakes and the discussions which still we need to be held.  We agreed the principle that the KICA committee is those who attend meetings.

After Wakes, the committee will have another look at the issues raised in the last public meeting, called by Glynn Parsons, to develop clearer idea about communications, tenure, mandate etc.

As newly selected Chair, Jeremy thanked the outgoing officials for their hard work during their period of office and encouraged everyone present to take part in, as well as help, with Wakes.

Attached are copies of the Wakes plan and Wakes day plan.

KICA Planning & Committee Meeting

There will be a KICA meeting in the village hall on Monday 15th April at 7.30pm to elect a new committee to run the village’s community association.  Here are the minutes/notes from the previous meeting held on Wednesday 27th March.

Apart from electing the committee the meeting will plan this year’s events which includes Wakes Week and establish a pool of volunteers/helpers to ‘make things happen’.

The meeting is open to all villagers, and is an opportunity for you to voice your opinion about past and future activities and events.  The three principle committee positions (Chair, Secretary & Treasurer) will be up for election; so if you feel you could undertake one of these positions, attend the meeting on Monday and put your name forward.  In addition KICA needs the support of the village to spread the load of organising and running future events.  The main issue raised at the previous meeting was that this had been left to the same small group of people to undertake and had become too much of a burden.  The plan is to operate like the village shop and spread the workload across a pool of volunteers/helpers organised by the new KICA committee.  So again if you feel you could contribute a few hours here and there come to the meeting and put your name forward as a KICA volunteer.

Unfortunately, due to business commitments I will not be at the meeting but I feel it is really important that the village’s voice is heard, so I hope you will be able to attend.

Best regards.

Kirk Ireton – Now with added Gnomes!

It has recently been brought to our attention that the village is being invaded by gnomes!

While a recent Gnome Patrol has reported an upsetting scene of a gnome massacre on the entry to the village from Hob Lane, the other colonies living on Bottom Lons, Moor Lane and Wirksworth Road all appear to be thriving.

If anybody has any further information, or more if any more are spotted please let us know!
