In April, GVP should have had its AGM. For obvious reasons this could not happen. This means that, since April, GVP has, in effect, not existed. The Chair and the Secretary had both resigned prior to the postponed meeting, after many years of service. There is hope of a future merger with the Festival Committee and talks are ongoing.
The ex- Chair and Secretary were responsible for organising Gatley’s Christmas events. They have met to discuss carrying on with this, but have concluded that it would not be possible to run these safely this year. So, sadly, this year there will be no Christmas Market and Lights Switch-on.
If anyone would like to take up the GVP baton then please get in touch. The village has seen some wonderful initiatives during the pandemic and it would be great news if some of the volunteers would be prepared to take on the challenge of revitalising GVP. Thank you for reading.
