10 July 2008 We were delighted to see so many members at our first AGM in spite of the rain. The “business” part of the meeting included a report of the main events of the past year from the Chairman Andrew Balmford, a financial report from Treasurer Frank Richards, and the re-election of the present Committee. Jim Gammie from Natural England gave a presentation on the provisional SSSI designation, outlining the reasons for its designation and how it would afford protection to most of the Ely Wildspace area. Members contributed very generously; funds received will help pay for legal advice and representation to fight the appeals made against LCPRE’s Village Green application and ECDC’s Enforcement Notice. We celebrated with “Chateaux Common”, a frisky little champagne made from elderflowers grown on Ely Common.
