AGM Notice 2024


The Riverside Players Annual General Meeting for 2024 will be held at 3PM on Sunday, 5th May 2024 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.

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.

All registered members should confirm they currently receive emails from the [email protected] email address.

Minutes of the 2023 AGM 

Committee Nomination Form


Extraordinary General Meeting Notification 

Before the main business of the Annual General Meeting 2024, there will be a brief Extraordinary General Meeting.

Swanley Light Opera Group (SLOG) have been an active amateur dramatics group in our local area for many years. We share common attitudes to our productions and we have an overlapping membership list.
Sadly, post-COVID, the group has struggled to regain momentum in the face of reduced audience numbers and rising costs.
The management committee of SLOG would prefer to merge with another group rather than simply dissolve the charity entirely. At their recent AGM, they formally agreed to initiate merger proceedings with Riverside Players.

What this means
1. The name of the charity would remain Riverside Players
2. All assets, including storage locations and membership lists, would be transferred.
3. Any current SLOG member, who is not already a member of Riverside Players, would be granted membership for one year.

EGM Proposal
The Committee proposes to proceed with the merger of Riverside Players and Swanley Light Opera Group. 

This proposal will be voted upon at the 2024 Extraodinary General Meeting: a change will require 2/3 of the vote to pass.

Any feedback or discussions around the proposal (for or against) should be sent to [email protected]
