New chair, new direction at the VGS

‘Special meeting’ at 7.30pm on Thursday 23rd June


Tomorrow evening sees a change at the top, with a new chair for the Vision Group for Sidmouth being voted in: Changing Chairs, June 2022

In a specially called meeting, the VGS will be thanking its retiring chair Peter Murphy – who brought energy and great networking skills to the post – most notably initiating the Sustainable Sidmouth Champions Awards last year, which highlighted the fabulous efforts made by so many during the pandemic:

The candidate for VGS chair will then introduce themselves and outline their ‘vision for Sidmouth’ – followed by some Q&As before a vote for a new chair.

Although this will be a ‘special meeting’, things should be fairly informal, allowing for free discussion on the future direction of the VGS.

If you would like to join the session, to be held at 7.30pm on Thursday 23rd June, please get in touch to receive the link details, as it will be on zoom: Contact – Vision Group for Sidmouth

Finally, as well as looking forward, the meeting will be looking at where the VGS is now – including its sister projects and websites. Have a look at Tales from the SidGlen Goyle GossipChampions Awards news and SolarPunk Snippets for some more different voices.
