NTBCC AGM & June meeting – In Person or via Zoom : Monday 13 June

For the first time in over 2 years, NTBCC’s June meeting will be an ‘in-person’ event in the main sanctuary of Broughton St Mary’s Church on Bellevue Crescent.

This will start with the Annual General meeting (AGM), immediately followed by our normal June meeting.

  • In order to gauge the number of attendees, we’re asking everyone to register if they plan to attend in person via the Eventbrite link here.
  • There will also be an option to attend virtually – if this option is desired, please register via a separate Eventbrite link here to receive the Zoom details.

We have been exploring options for holding for hybrid meetings and now believe that with the new facilities available in Broughton St Mary’s , we are more confident of being able to successfully hold a hybrid meeting but with the focus on it being an in-person event.

The full agenda for the AGM and June meeting will be published soon on our website, www.ntbcc.org.uk/meetings/

We look forward to as many residents as possible joining us for this as well as local councillors – both those newly-elected or those who have been re-elected folllowing the 5 May Council elections.
