Minutes for November General Meeting

Minutes of Meeting – Monday 5 th November 2018 – 8pm at the The Vicarage, Holmes Chapel Present approx 9 members including the committee Apologies: Pat Guerin, Nikki Phillips, Anna Mather, Joy Toomer Chairman’s Report – Kristine (in Joy’s absence) Kristine chaired the meeting and welcomed everyone • The minutes from 1 st October 2018 meeting were accepted • Staffordshire is being challenged about its lack of progress in resolving the outstanding rights of ways claims. Since the secretary of state directed Staffordshire to resolve the numerous outstanding claims a year ago they have still not resolved a single claim. The parties who submitted the claims have now got together and are seeking legal advice on moving this forward. This may require financial support from us • Wedgewood Lane needs to be passable prior to the Congleton ride; Anndrea to check • Lamberts Lane has been checked and is still passable for horses although much narrower than it used to be. • From next year we will hold meetings quarterly February, May (probably held at Somerford during camp), August and November. We will try to get speakers for each of the meetings and will need to promote them well.
