Chesham Allotments Group representatives

The committee is made up of a group of representatives from both sites - Asheridge Road and Cameron Road.

We're from all walks of life - some of us working and some of us retired - and we get together to run the allotments on behalf of all tenants.

We meet five or six times throughout the year and work through topics such as maintenance and site improvements, plot inspections and events.

One of the best (and social!) ways to meet us is at one of our regular coffee mornings. We'll be happy to talk through your idea, issue or suggestions in person. Or look out for us on our own plots at either of the two sites.

Meetings and Minutes

 

Regular meetings are a vital communication and operations tool. Chesham Allotments Group committee meets six times a year to discuss projects and issues related to the allotment sites.

Prior to each meeting the Chair circulates an agenda via email to the committee members. Our meetings follow a standard, formal format and are directed by the Chair. Minutes are taken during the meeting by the Secretary, checked by the Chair and then circulated to all CAG representatives for approval. If necessary, corrections are made and the approved minutes of the meeting are then sent to the Town Council for archiving and are available for viewing on the CAG website.

Our Annual General Meeting

Chesham Allotments Group enjoys a collaborative relationship with Chesham Town Council and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) takes place in September at the Town Hall.
