Federation Meeting - Thursday 10th September 2020

The Federation last met for their Annual General Meeting in the Trent & Dove boardroom back in March just before the lock down started. Last Thursday, using Microsoft Teams, the Federation members met virtually from the comfort of their own homes and successfully demonstrated that they can continue to represent their local residents during the pandemic.

There were two main agenda items;

  • The Globe Foundation submitted a bid to the Federation for help towards their refurbishment costs of their new premises in The Old Mill Building, Uttoxeter. The Globe Foundation was set up in 2018 to protect and enhance the natural world by reducing the impact of modern living. The Federation unanimously voted to support the bid and awarded a £5,000 grant.

  • Christmas! Yes although we are still in September the Federation discussed plans the plans this year for Christmas. Last year Trent & Dove delivered more than 140 Christmas food parcels to vulnerable people in our community.
