Just a quick note...

The Charities Commission guidelines make no mention that non-members may not attend a charity AGM. It does say, however, that the individual Charity's governing document may determine who can attend an AGM. Sadly, the CPS's governing document does not state who can and cannot attend an AGM. So I'm not entirely sure that saying the AGM is open to MEMBERS ONLY is completely lawful!"

There are two parts to the AGM:  the first is concerned with Society business (receiving committee reports, voting for committee members/trustees, changes to the governing document/subscription rates etc);  the second consists of talks on various aspects of CPs including cultivation, habitats etc and the auction.

The first part is restricted to members for obvious reasons.  The second is open to anyone.

Sadly I will be unable to come as I currently dont drive and so my wife would have to bring me, but not being a member would mean she would be left in the car on her own. It would seem a bot rude of me to expect her to drive me down there and then ask her to wait in the car lol.
