London Welsh AGM - Weds 31st May

By Dragons' Den
May 22 2017

The year the club's annual membership meeting will be held on 31st May, 7.30 for an 8pm start. The meeting is intended to be a Membership Meeting rather than a formal AGM and will be open to all who want to #BePartOfIT. This is your chance to find out what is happening and what you can do to help.

The meeting notice is shown below:


Whilst we will take a moment to look at season 2016 - 2017 as a baseline, the meeting with focus its time on the clubs membership and its future as part of the RFU. We are indeed an English community rugby club but with that complex and intangible quality of passion and sense of belonging that isn’t easy to translate but known to us all as 'Hywl', this indeed is what makes our club very special regardless of your age, nationality, gender or colour. 

The agenda for the evening will broadly focus on the following topics:

  • 2016-2017 Summary
  • Our Values and Beliefs
  • “The Team”
  • 2017 and beyond
  • Valuing Each Other
  • Membership For 2017
  • How May I Help

We are a club run by its members for its members. As volunteers there are of course many roles within the club that need your time and energy. It never ceases to amaze me what a single person can achieve in a volunteer role and  the difference they can make the the club. You may feel you could contribute to the administration of the 400 club, act as book keeper, run a social event, contribute items of club news to support out social media and web presence. Its not about how much time or do I have the skills, Volunteering is about passion, a sense of community and making a difference. 

You may not be able to contribute time due to other commitment but perhaps your work involves finding quality talent within your business. Where better to find high quality, motivated young people than in a rugby club, the London Welsh Careers Incubator is about connecting members to members with a focus on Business rather than Rugby. 

Official roles that are either open or have come around for renewal at this years meeting.

  • Chairperson
  • Hon Sec
  • Hon Treasurer
  • Club Medical Officer
  • Club Volunteer CoOrdinator

If you wish to stand for any of these positions please contact Mike Talbot before midday sunday 28th May.

Considering joining London Welsh as a player or reaffirming your membership for season 2017, we will have forms available on the night and for non-playing members we will be able to accept Cash, Cheque (London Welsh Amateur Rugby Club Limited) and Card payments so we are ready for 1st Sept. Please also take the option to become members of the Voyagers charity and the Supporters Club at the same time, wonderful organisations that do so much good for some many people and are very much part of our London Welsh Family. 

If you bring a little cash we may even have a few items that might take your fancy in our 'club boot sale'. 

Lastly your business may through its Corporate and Social responsibility programs be looking for opportunities to support community programs. Perhaps you may have reached a place in life where want to put a little back into a rugby family that has given to you. If that's the case then sponsorship programs and personal giftaid mechanisms may offer you both tax efficiency and returns your looking for. Speak to one of the management team on the evening and lets see if we can help each other.

Oh and don't let me forgot the bar will of course be open for us all to enjoy. 

Gwyn Williams

London Welsh Chairman

Eight days until the meeting, make sure you've got it in your diary!

Whether you've been around the club for decades, a more recent convert or simply just curious, come along and hear what's happening and the ways you can get involved.

There's a huge amount going on behind the scenes and I believe this is the first ambitious and sensible plan to come out from the club in a very long time. It's going to be a fascinating season.....

Cheers new paddytaf, it's always nice when a supporter from another rugby Club visits this site and puts up a message of support! (Sm53)(Sm151)

Great statement of intent and looking forward to contributing more in the next few years when personal circumstances allow.

I have followed London Welsh for more than thirty years, as a regular supporter when living in London and when posted abroad by what ever means possible - month old newspapers in the diplomatic bag in the early days, later the World Wide Web and Dragons Den
Now based in Bethesda, yes I know I am a Gog, but still following London Welsh.
So tomorrow's meeting is so important, to begin the rebuilding of this famous old club. Think about Huddersfield Town now in the Premiership, if they can do it London Welsh can at least return to the Championship.

Pob lwc
