Holyrood Close Neighbourhood Watch AGM 2015

Holyrood Close have just held their 4th AGM. The committee remained the same this year.
As part of their meeting, they have a raffle, answers to a Quiz that one of our members sent out a few weeks ago, and then pancakes for lunch, with assorted fillings. The pancakes and refreshments were funded by Tesco and Sainsbury’s vouchers. 

The raffle money goes into their funds along with collected subscriptions.

Money in the fund is used to buy flowers, cards etc for those in the Close with illness, or even a wreath if they lose any of their neighbours. Other money is used to fund the Summer social which is usually a BBQ.

21 members of the close enjoyed this social and business meeting.
