Clanfield Online AGM - 2019 was a busy year

Clanfield Online community website members held their AGM last week. To be able to gather 35 people, representing local business and community groups, on a chilly February night was no mean feat. More would have come along, but the evening clashed with other meetings – we must live in a busy village? Before I file away my notes, I thought I would share them with you.

Membership increased in 2019:

58 business and 32 community members (2018/19: 45 business and 30 community members). Business members pay a one-off annual fee of £96.00: Community groups receive free membership.

Website work increased in 2019:

Nearly 500 events, news and blogs published on website and shared hundreds more on social media. We enable local businesses and community groups to have a voice in the village: we promote and celebrate events, news and local people.

Projects expanded in 2019:

Funded 4 new planters for village = now 10 in total

Funded compost and seasonal plants throughout year and maintained Drift Road roundabout

Funded purchase and installation of 10 Christmas trees, lights, decorations: our thanks to EHDC Ken Moon and Arthur Agate for a donation to help with costs

Funded Clanfield Gardening Club to plant and maintain Drift Rd flowerbed throughout year

Donation to Clanfield Cubs and Beavers funds for repainting wooden planters

Donation to CJS ‘Grow It’ club for tools and seeds in return for planting flowers in community containers

Donation to Petersgate School minibus appeal

Donation to Clanfield Voluntary Care Group for their work helping elderly, frail villagers

Sponsored Clanfield Cricket Club team kit in 2019

Sponsored Clanfield Football Club Under 8’s team kit

Funded road safety signs for Clanfield Litter Picking Group

Bought and installed large poppies on street planters

Funded Clanfield Beavers for making poppy wreaths for Drift Road roundabout; increasing their knowledge of Remembrance Day

Purchased bunting for VE75 Day 2020

Held Networking Meetings giving businesses and community groups the chance to meet and help each other

Clanfield Challenge 2020 - supported this marvellous run every year through publicity and promotion

Purchased and selling Clanfield Shopping bags as our commitment to ‘ditching the plastic’

It’s quite a long list for a small, local community website. We couldn’t manage this work without the support of local volunteers, businesses and groups. They gave their time, skills, knowledge; donating goods or at cost price for the benefit of the village. Clanfield Online hopes you will support them in 2020.
