Created 30th January 2019
I read the recent newsletter and was shocked myself to hear that we have been running at a loss for the last few years, especially as I’m the chair and was totally unaware of this. So I had a look into the figures and am pleased to say that the Newsletter was wrong, over a thousand positive pounds wrong. I also was not happy with the serious and in my opinion authoritarian nature of the last newsletter. I feel that the tone of it was not in accordance with the ethos of the Redacre Growing Project. On behalf of the directors I wish to apologise, and assure you the board have agreed to moderate communication before circulating in future. The statements were in some ways due to the complicated and not always clear nature of our accounts. There are differing feelings within the Board on our financial footing. So I thought I would start this, my last Chair Persons Report, with a look back over Redacre since conception to the present day, with an illustration of how our finances have been managed, so please bear with me. I am now I believe the only active member who was on site before any work had begun, and feel that this is my opportunity to pass on my experience and understanding of how we got to where we are today.
