With the current Government restrictions, the Annual General Meeting of EHVC Ltd
could not take place as usual.
The Directors have discussed various AGM matters in order to keep the business of
EHVC running and to satisfy our Limited Company status.
Agreed that AGM actions / decisions will be put to a short ‘AGM’ tacked onto one of
our Club Meetings later in the year – possibly September – to formally ratify matters
where necessary..

Minutes of the AGM held on 25 April 2019 agreed and will be signed by the
Chairman and Secretary.

Report and recommendations agreed
Agenda Item 9 – Election of Directors for 2020/2021:
Under Article 5.4(a): the Existing Directors have agreed to continue to serve for the
coming year.
Under Article 5.4(b): 2 nominations were received from members wishing to stand as
Directors. Sharon Winter and Alan Hodges. Vacancies exist on the current Board.
As a formal vote of Members could not take place, the existing Directors have agreed
to co-opt Sharon and Alan, which is allowed for in our Articles.
Company Secretary (Mike Bray) to action as necessary with Companies House.
Agenda Item 10 – Donations:
Formal authority for the Board to action, to wait until later in the year.
Agenda Item 11 – Peter Uridge Shield:
2 nominations received.
Board decision awaited as to whether Directors will decide or whether the award be

Agenda Item 12 – AOB:
Festival of Transport:
The decision on whether the FOT can proceed may well be a Government decision
and out of our hands. At the present time, the show is ON. It is recognised that the
situation may change at any time.
However, agreed that:
The situation will be kept under review and a decision will be made at the latest in
late June / early July.
If the decision is still in our hands, the FOT Executive will advise the full EHVC
Board, who will then make the final decision for 2020. (This course of action will
protect, particularly the FOT Executive, and ensure there can be no undue criticism of
actions from either EHVC members or the general public).
