Calling all members!

The Riverside Players Annual General Meeting will be held at 5PM on Sunday, 27th June 2021 at the Eynsford Village Hall.

The business of the meeting will be:

  • Report on the activities for the last year
  • Updates on our forthcoming planned activities
  • Election of Committee members and Auditor (You must register as a member prior to the AGM date to be eligble to stand or vote)
  • Voting and announcement of the annual Riverside Players awards.

There will be an honesty bar as well as entertainment after the business of the meeting is concluded, as well as a chance to see old faces after lockdown. Due to the current climate, we will not be offering our usual buffet; however feel free to bring snacks to consume at your table. We would also ask all members to register their attendance and party size (or their regretted absence) by emailing [email protected]

Since you’re going to be emailing us anyway please also submit your nominations for our annual awards. Whilst historically nominations tend to cover the last year, our reduced output this year gives us the perfect opportunity to look back and nominate members who have demonstrated the values from each award. The categories are below – please submit nominations (as well as your attendance confirmation and party size) to [email protected]

Caroline Frost Creativity Award – Caroline was a member many years ago who was very dedicated to the group. The award was created in her memory to celebrate people who have shown creative talent in many different aspects of the group.

Suzie Fenlon Spoken Word Award – Suzie was a long standing member and character within the Riverside Players family. The award was created to celebrate those who have stood out during performances with their characterisation and delivery.

Ian Slipper Award for Musicality – Ian could turn his hand to anything and was frequently known to pick up a new instrument and learn it within a few days when called upon. He directed shows, performed on stage, ran and played in the band and even got involved with tech. This award was crated to celebrate outstanding musical contribution, be it through performance, support or learning something new.

Note – the location is assuming that COVID-19 restrictitions continue to permit an in-person AGM. If there is any change, we will revert to a Zoom link – all registered members should confirm they currently receive emails from the [email protected] email address.
