2020 Chair Election Results
It's clear that the lock-down has required many of us to rediscover our neighbours and our community - this may just be the silver lining in this world-wide cloud. The pressing of the "pause" button, may just require us to think a little bit more about the community we live in; the quality of our air, the resilience of our local businesses, and the usability of the streets we now walk daily. Assets taken for granted have been rediscovered: Ropemakers Fields, the Basin, St Anne's Churchyard have all been given the appreciation they deserve in the light of a brand new Spring. The Yurt, and The Royal Foundation of St Katharine deserve special mention. Their ability to convert themselves, almost overnight, from a coffee shop and niche hotel into a community grocer and NHS facility (for the next three months, at least) is an outstanding achievement demonstrating flexibility and commitment to meeting the needs of our community.
So too must the LCF, and in partnering with the grassroots volunteers of Limehouse Aid, we hope to provide some administration and funding for their valuable and important works.
There were well over 100 new registrations to the LCF over the election period, and I would like to warmly welcome our new members. You may not have joined the LCF to vote for me, but by joining the LCF you have voted for Limehouse. On behalf of the Executive Leadership, we look forward to engaging with you over the coming months to discover how you would like to get involved - perhaps by joining one or more of our working groups.
The Adjudicator's Report
I will be appointing the following Officers:
Helen Kenney as Vice Chair,
Lesley Balding as Vice Chair, and
Lee Carr as Treasurer
Other Officer appointments will be announced in due course.
Confirmation of Officers is by simple majority vote, if any member wishes to abstain or not vote for confirmation of these nominees please write to me. There are several key leadership positions vacant within the Executive; please feel free to express your interest if you would like to hold a role.
The LCF is not truly led by the Chair or the Executive, the LCF is led by its membership, and it is with that unified voice that we will continue to protect and promote our Limehouse community.
