• FoSJP AGM 2012
  • FoSJP held its sixth Annual General Meeting at Shirley Parish Hall on Wednesday 30th May, with more than 40 members in attendance.

    • Outgoing Chair Nichola Caveney gave an illustrated presentation of the many activities in St.James’ Park over the 12 months since the previous AGM, including the re‑opening of the Park after the restoration and improvements and the opening of the new ParkLife Café & Community Room.
    • A revised FoSJP Constitution was approved.
    • A new FoSJP Committee was elected.
    • Jan Carr, our recently appointed Community Coordinator, introduced herself and her work.

    This was Nichola’s last AGM as FoSJP Chair, and a presentation was made to her in recognition of the visionary leadership and dedicated service that she had given over FoSJP’s six years of existence, including a written tribute from Jon Dyer‑Slade of Southampton City Council, with whom FoSJP has been working to bring about the improvements to St.James’ Park.

    The evening was rounded off with cheese and wine and informal discussions.

Our thanks go to Johnny Carrington, Martin Caveney, Nichola Caveney, Martin Gardner, Rebecca Kinge, Mike Smith, Trudie Smith, Barrie Worth, and Jayne Worth, who each stepped down as Committee members during 2011‑2012, in some cases after more than 6 years of sterling service.
