Dear Member,


The annual general meeting of Lanark Community Development Trust was originally scheduled to take place in April 2020. In light of the COVID-19 public health crisis, the AGM was postponed until further notice. As many social distancing and gathering restrictions are still in place, the decision has been made to host the AGM virtually using the ZOOM website. The virtual AGM will take place on Thursday 1st October 2020 at 7pm.  

The AGM will be an opportunity for you to hear about the work of the Trust over the past eighteen months. The Chairman will report on the activities of the Trust and the annual accounts will be presented. A digital copy of the accounts can also be accessed at

If you would like to exercise this right, you should indicate this in writing to the Trust, c/o Castlebank Horticultural Centre at the address below or by email to, not less than seven working days prior to the AGM.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the past year and look forward to welcoming you to our virtual AGM.
