*Annoucements & events:* 

AGM re-run on 24 Jan
We need all members to make sure other members attend or allocate a proxy!
Hazel mentions that it wasn't clear prior to the last AGM what we were voting on.
Bob W asked if there could be a better way to capture the way members wish their proxies to vote, e.g. by completing a form. However, Matt mentions that there can be changes on the day and proxies need to make their own judgements.
Stephen made a comment about the email links to the constitution and the changes being difficult to follow. Could there be simpler explanations? (edited) 
Dan asks if there could be a postal vote. Matt confirms this is not possible.
New email to all members about the new AGM date will be sent soon.
