Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

BEACONSFIELD Town Res­i­dents (BTR) has been in ex­is­tence in Beaconsfield for around 20 years.

Dur­ing its first years it was very ac­tive with re­gard to de­vel­op­ment and trans­porta­tion is­sues. Lat­terly, it has been less ac­tive al­though its com­mit­tee still ex­ists and in­di­vidu- als have been ac­tive re­gard­ing cur­rent is­sues.

Re­cently, Beaconsfield Old Town Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion (BOTRA) has merged with The Beaconsfield So­ci­ety (TBS) to form a stronger and more fully rep­re­sen­ta­tive body, tak­ing The Beaconsfield So­ci­ety ti­tle, with both or­gan­i­sa­tions al­ready work­ing to­gether and hold­ing their first an­nual gen­eral meet­ing in Novem­ber.

The pur­pose of this No­tice is to in­form BTR sup­port­ers that its resid­ual com­mit­tee has been in­vited by the en­larged Beaconsfield So­ci­ety to add their strength to what has been achieved so far, and merge with them too. Those mem­bers of BTR’s com­mit­tee still in­volved are all en­thu­si­as­tic to do this as be­ing wholly to the ben­e­fit of Beaconsfield.

They would wish to close our bank ac­count and to trans­fer the small sum of funds that have been ly­ing idle, to the ac­counts of The Beaconsfield So­ci­ety. The amount is around £500.

The ob­ject of this no­tice is to in­form those who have been sup­port­ers of BTR in the past, and who are not in favour of what is be­ing sug­gested, so that they may put for­ward their mis­giv­ings for con­sid­er­a­tion.

We hope to be able to make a de­ci­sion be­fore mid-Oc­to­ber. If you are in favour, please do not trou­ble to re­ply, but do please con­sider com­ing to the first AGM of the “merged” Beaconsfield So­ci­ety AGM at the Fitzwilliam Cen­tre, 7.30pm, Fri­day Novem­ber 4.

If you have mis­giv­ings, please email: cdme. mitchell@bt­in­ter­net. com as soon as pos­si­ble.
