Cllr Kathy Bance (Penge & Cator) and Cllr Marina Ahmad (Crystal Palace) are the guests at the next Penge Forum meeting on Tuesday 25th September at Melvin Hall. They will be taking part in an open question session, so you can ask them about any aspect of their work on Bromley Council and discuss those issues that affect you most.
We will also be asking members to approve a Constitution change which will allow us to go ahead with our plans to nominate Penge East Community Centre as an Asset of Community Value. This is so we can give it some protection should there be future plans to develop that site. To comply with changes in the regulations, lawyers have advised us that our Constitution needs to include the words “Any surplus funds will be used solely in accordance with the objects of the Constitution. No surplus funds or other finance will be distributed at any time to those in membership or former membership of Penge Forum.” There will be a short discussion on this but only paid up Members will be able to vote on the proposal, and we will be asking them to formally approve this change.
As other items are confirmed for the Meeting we will let you know. As usual, we will provide tea, coffee and biscuits for an informal chat from 7.00pm before the meeting starts at 7.30pm.
