As anyone reading this will probably not know, the ‘Trust Centre’ will be holding an EGM, following failure to hold a quorate AGM some… let’s see… four months back. The normal procedure, that is to say, what the trust’s rules say, is that when an AGM is inquorate, another meeting is arranged for seven days later, and however many residents turn up, the meeting is judged to be quorate. Despite attempts to point this out, the chairwoman was of the view that such a meeting ‘might not be quorate’ and the secretary, Bren McInerney, refused to acknowledge the facts, so the emergency meeting is finally taking place tomorrow. As you would expect, this meeting would have to be heavily promoted, to ensure that there would be minimal risk that it ‘might not be quorate’. Not a bit of it. No posters, no mention on the charity’s web site news page (well, there hasn’t actually been any news on it since over a year ago, even when the partnership asked it to promote our own AGM), no notice on the trust’s entrance display, nothing.

The general concensus is that this means the managment committee have no interest in residents turning up, and therefore no interest in the trust surviving its present financial difficulties, and that they intend to dissolve the trust and sell the building. This would have serious consequences for, among others, the radio station founded by the chairwoman’s husband, so I’m quite sure a lot of thought has gone into this. What exactly the committee has in mind, though, we won’t know until tomorrow evening…
