This year’s Annual General Meeting took place on the 11th of June. We were thrilled to be able to hold this year’s event at The Silk Mill in Frome.
It was great to see so many Openstorytellers members there. It was a day of celebration as we welcomed our new Director, Simon Morris to the charity. Simon takes over from Cindy Moxham who after four years at the helm, is moving away from the area. The trustees and members gave a huge vote of thanks to Cindy for everything she has done for Openstorytellers since she joined in 2009. We do not say goodbye to Cindy completely however, as we are delighted to announce that she will be staying on as a trustee.
The Annual Report and Accounts were presented and these were accepted and approved by the members. The accessible version of our Annual Report is available to read here.
The meeting ended with a presentation for Clemma and Robin, supported by Ruth giving us all a wonderful insight into the Social Care Induction Training they deliver for Somerset County Council. Clemma, Robin and Brian use their own personal stories to help train care staff, they are experts by experience!
Lastly, no Openstorytellers meeting would be complete without tea, cake and lots of story sharing!
