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.
Mac

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!

KICA Public Meeting (27th March 2013) – Minutes

Kirk Ireton Community Association public meeting and what happens next…

Glyn called this meeting and was accompanied by Mac, Sue and Keith. Glyn opened the meeting saying it was about the future of KICA and explaining how the four of them had felt compelled to draw attention to the fact that too few people were involved in the association. All four intended to withdraw from the KICA committee. Continue reading

KICA Public Meeting – 27th March 2013 – URGENT

7.30 pm – Village Hall Wednesday 27th March

After the public notice to wind up Kirk Ireton Community Association (KICA), the committee have been contacted with suggestions by a number of villagers. The main theme is that something should be done to ensure that this, or some other body should continue the good works that so benefit village life.
As a result we have decided to arrange a public meeting where the outgoing committee can explain why they have taken this course of action whilst allowing other members of the community to share their views and to explore if there is any workable alternatives.
If you cannot attend this very important meeting that could have repercussions on other aspects of village life then please either send a friend or neighbour with you idea or suggestion.
As previously communicated KICA has already given a promise to financially support certain events and we would appreciate it if anyone could also be able to offer their support in making the future evenings a success.
The future events are:

  • The film night “’South Pacific” – 1st June (main sponsor Malcolm Race)
  • Village Ceilidh – 8th June (including the cost of the marquee).
  • Any expenses incurred by the newly formed Rattling Bog village ceilidh band
  • Pay for Belper Morris if they attend this or another event in June.
  • Pay for the Trinity Sunday brass band for 2013 (TBC after the meeting – 2nd June)

As a consequence there will no longer be an undertaking for any of the current KICA committee members to organise:

  • Wakes day 8th June
  • Wakes week events 1st – 8th June
  • Insurance for any events staged that week
  • Halloween evening
  • Firework event
  • Carols round the tree
  • Christmas Tree erection & decoration
  • Party in the Park & Family days on the field
  • Christmas quiz
  • Any themed community events previously used to raise funds for KICA

It is our intention that if there is no commitment from a new collective of village residents then we begin to wind up KICA and once all financial commitments have been met look to distribute the remaining funds so we can close the existing KICA bank accounts. Please direct any questions you may have to me at any of the places shown below.
Yours sincerely,
Glyn Parsons
