Annual General Meeting

The 2021 AGM took place on Tuesday 23 November 2021

Message from the Chair

It was with relief that this year we held the AGM in person.  Zoom has been a great asset over the past year but it was so much better to be able to meet in person again.

We had also intended to arrange a Members’ General Meeting during the year but with the COVID-19 situation making everything so uncertain, our priorities were to keep the Settlement afloat, offer what we could online and be ready to open our doors again when we were allowed.  So, at the AGM, we brought Members up to date with what had been happening at the Settlement and shared the Management Committee’s plans for the future.

Likewise, we had also planned to carry out a review of the Settlement’s Constitution to ensure it was in line with the latest Charity Commission guidance and best practice.  Again, this was not considered a priority over the last year and therefore it is still work in progress.  We hope to make a recommendation at the 2022 AGM.


Below are the unapproved minutes of the 2021 AGM and the approved minutes of the 2020 and 2019 AGMs.

The financial statements for the year ended 31 July 2021 are currently being  independently examined. 

The Management Committee is responsible for signing off the report and financial statements prior to their circulation to the Members.  As the Members were not able to receive them at the 2021 AGM, the Management Committee will make them available to Members as soon as the independent examination has been completed and they have been signed off by the Committee.
