  1. To say I am stunned by the allegations made by Annette would be a serious understatement. I left the committee a few months ago after running the seed bank for almost 12 years and the committee described by Annette is not the committee I recognise. All of them have worked hard to ensure that everything is done properly and above board. Every member of the committee has done their job with the interests of the membership at heart. I would love to see evidence as described by Annette, so far I believe she has produced none. Many of the current committee have been in their positions for many years and it is just wrong to treat them in this way. They give up their time to keep things running smoothly. Okay there are problems, journals are late being one of them, but they have done and still do their best. The chairman as far as I can tell has no authority to demand committee resignations. It must be a full committee decision and I believe Annette has overstepped her authority in demanding that some long standing committee members resign. If they have brought the society into disrepute in any way let us see the evidence and the members can decide the way forward with a proper vote.. The entire committee have agreed that they have no confidence in Annette as the chair of the society and that is an agreed vote and therefore a legitimate committee decision. As Annette is no longer chair, she no longer has the right to a trustee position either. The people she took on as trustees without committee consent should be removed as trustees until this is sorted and settled. They may be suitable as trustees, but they need to be legitimately selected. If Annette believes she has the support of the members, then let us have a proper vote at the AGM in May, when she has the right to stand against whoever takes her place temporarily for now. This is your society. It is not up to Annette to decide it will be dissolved. If Annette and her friends want to start a new organisation, they are welcome to do so, but it seems they want to do that and take your money with them. I do hope that should it come down to a vote at the AGM, that you will all support your very loyal, long standing committee. All committee records are open to member scrutinisation. Please do ask to see evidence, not just from the committee who have my full support, but from Annette who so far is full of accusations without showing anything to back it all up. Sheila
