Wigboroughs’ Village Hall AGM 2016

Wigboroughs’ Village Hall AGM 2016

WIGBOROUGHS VILLAGE HALL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

Annual General Meeting, Tuesday 29th November 2016.

The single resolution put to the residents of Great and Little Wigborough was:

That the site in School Lane should be sold and the net proceeds split equally between two initiatives

  • the enhancement of the nave of Great Wigborough Church to make it more suitable for use as a community venue
  • supporting the re-development of Peldon Village Hall to create a co-owned and shared community centre to be known as the Peldon and Wigboroughs Community Centre.

The resolution was carried by 60 votes in favour and 22 against, the totals including 37 postal votes.

New trustees were elected and the committee now consists of three appointed trustees (Jinny Gale, Phil Gladwin and Sam Norton) and four elected trustees (Steve Copeland, Marion Houlding, John Hutchinson and Melanie Newton).

At a subsequent trustees meeting Jinny was elected as Chairman, Melanie as Secretary and Steve as Treasurer.

The result is binding upon the committee who will now proceed to implement it as quickly as they can.

Local Health Forums

The Health Forum

The NEE Health Forum is a largely enthusiastic and committed body of people who are interested in health matters.  They are all people who have registered as public members of North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group.

The Health Forum is not formally part of the Clinical Commissioning Group, but members of the Health Forum Committee are invited to be part of all decision-making meetings within the CCG so that they can obtain and reflect the views of people from North East Essex to the group in a timely way.  The Clinical Commissioning Group wants the Health Forum to be as inclusive as possible, and so the criteria for eligibility are very broad.  There is more detail on the Join the Health Forum page of their website.

Members of the Health Forum are able to vote for the Health Forum Committee.  The Health Forum Committee has a number of sub-groups which are looking at specific health related issues.  The Health Forum does not have any legal powers, but has been given local powers by the CCG.  It works very closely with Essex HealthWatch, who do have legal powers.

Their important reports, including local Health Forum meeting dates, agendas and minutes and similar material relating to the Health Forum Committee can be found on their site in the Library.

Get Involved at Local Health Forums

The Health Forum holds local meetings which any public member of the CCG  can attend, regardless of where they live.  The 3 local meetings are held at Colchester; Harwich; (rest of) Tendring – this is usually held in Clacton.  

The next meetings are being held on 2nd, 3rd & 4th February (2pm – 4pm) respectively.  The agenda vary slightly both from meeting to meeting but also by location, but will typically include items such as those due to be discussed in the February meetings:

  • NE Essex Community Pharmacy Scheme
  • CHUFT Cancer Services (Clacton & Harwich only)
  • Borough GP Care Advisory Service (Colchester only)
  • Carer Strategy Consultation
  • General Q&A

These meetings give Health Forum members a chance to receive presentations and ask questions relating to key health care issues and services in their area.  They are also to raise concerns with the NEE CCG staff directly and Health Forum Committee members.

The Agendas for the local meetings are set by the Health Forum Committee who request speakers on the subjects they believe local people want to hear more about.  The CCG supports the Health Forum Committee by finding suitable speakers and health professionals that are in a position to answer relevant questions.

All three local meetings are usually held within a week of each other and they occur bi-monthly (every other month).  The dates of future meetings can be found on their events page

The agendas and minutes of the Local Engagement forum are published in their Library under Health Forum.

New Village Hall for Peldon

peldon_village_hallFollowing the meeting we held in February, our latest plans for a new village hall for Peldon will be on display at an open meeting and coffee morning on

                              Saturday 9th October 2010

                               between 10.00am and 12.00 noon

in the Village Hall

Since February, when there was general agreement to the internal layout of the new hall, our architects have been considering alternative designs for the exterior of the building, taking into account views of the planners at Colchester Borough Council. Our architects and members of the management committee will be present and will welcome comments from all interested parties on the latest proposals.

We look forward to welcoming you all
