Over the years the Residents Association (RA) has been a voice of the many, and a central point of contact to liaise between the landlord and the tenants of Heyford Park. The RA has evolved over the years to assist in matters of the community from all residents here at Heyford Park, and where possible engage with the community to promote the great community atmosphere here at Heyford Park. More information about the RA can be found here:
While the Annual General Meeting happened on the 27th February, there have since been a number of resignations of all but a couple of the committee. This leaves Heyford Park with no functional RA, where there has been one in place since 2005. Since the resignation of the majority of committee members, a small group of people who believe that the RA has a valid position within the community have formed a working group. The purpose of the group is to see how an Emergency General Meeting can be organised and what needs to be done to achieve this.
There was a zoom meeting held on the 10th March 2021 to begin this process. During the meeting a proposed date was put forward, as a target date is needed to work towards. There was also a discussion on how to advertise the news and communicate with the wider group of Heyford Park, along with accessibility to the meeting. It was also decided to publish this announcement today. The group would like to encourage the involvement of the wider community as the RA is for all residents of Heyford Park. Please see the pdf document which contains the points of discussion, bear in mind this was not a formal meeting but more of an initial action group to get the ball rolling.
There will be a formal calling of the EGM via the Valley News and a leaflet drop to inform all residents. Updated information will be posted on this website and where possible on social media on the Heyford Park groups. Should anyone like to get involved with the organisation of the EGM please email firstname.lastname@example.org and express your interest to help. This will mean that you will be offering your services to help achieve an EGM, there are no predetermined positions as this is just a working group not a selection group or RA.
Further information will be made available over the next few days as to the next steps with details such as
Develop leaflet for leaflet drop
Write article for valley news
Create Zoom links for publication for further meetings and EGM
Arrange leaflet deliveries
Arrange Vally News publication
Put posters up in the noticeboards
