FoAM Committee Changes

At a Meeting of the Committee held by Zoom on 5 August 2020, Trustees agreed that Mike Allen be appointed to the Officer role of Secretary to replace Frances Findlay. Frances would have reached the end of her three year term of office at the time of the AGM scheduled to be held on Monday 18th May 2020, but which had to be cancelled due to Covid 19.

Also at their Zoom Meeting held on 5 August 2020, the Committee agreed that Jim Jeeves would take over the role of Membership Secretary from Debbie Antrobus.

The Committee thanked Frances and Debbie for their work and welcomed Mike and Jim to their new roles.

FoAM’s Summer 2020 Newsletter

This is now the second FoAM newsletter since the start of the pandemic and it still feels strange producing a newsletter when we have been unable to hold any events and volunteers have been unable to work in the Woodlands since 19th March.

In spite of this, there is still a lot of news and information to share and we hope you will find something of interest in FoAM’s Summer 2020 Newsletter.

A number of volunteers have just been allowed back into the Woodlands, working within government guidelines. However, the length of the lockdown means there is a huge backlog of jobs to be tackled. Unfortunately, the nature of the events planned by FoAM are such that it is unlikely we will be able to hold any for the remainder of this year.

FoAM’s Spring 2020 Newsletter

In these unprecedented times, it seemed quite strange producing a newsletter when all our activities had been stopped as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, there is still much of interest to report as the Woodlands are looking fantastic and open for exercise. Read about this and our other news in FoAM’s Spring 2020 Newsletter.
