Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Forum AGM 2020 -TONIGHT 7-8PM (Wednesday 28th October)


You can never have too many meetings, right?

OK that isn't true, but ahead of tomorrow's MEOTRA AGM there is the Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Forum tonight at 7PM on Zoom

Further details are available on their website, but you will have to pre-register for this Zoom meeting if you want to attend.

The forum has just reached a milestone and published their [our really] draft plan which if adopted will have a significant effect on planning in our area.

If you can't attend tonight's AGM, then there will be a couple of opportunities coming up to discuss the draft plan and have your input.


Reminder: MEOTRA AGM Thursday 29th October 7PM (via Zoom)

Mark you're on mute
Hello Mark! You're on mute"

Tomorrow sees MEOTRA's first virtual AGM at 7PM. To keep it local to MEOTRA residents only, there is a short (literally 15 seconds)  Zoom registration form.

We are still keen for some new blood on the committee so please do let me know if you are interested - a newsletter editor and secretary are particularly needed.

We have some exciting news, a secret known only to one. So if you want to find out what this earth-shattering news is then please register and come along.

MEOTRA Annual General Meeting Thursday 29th October 2020, 7PM


MEOTRA will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 29th October at 7PM. It will be a virtual meeting using Zoom.

Usually, our AGM is held in March/April, but COVID put a stop to that. We could skip a year, but we thought let's slip one in now - it's not like we have flights to catch. 

Who can attend? If you live in the MEOTRA area, then you are a member and can attend.

Where is the MEOTRA area? This is the area bounded by Mile End Road, Lichfield Road, the Regent’s Canal and Coborn Street.

The MEOTRA boundary

How do I attend the virtual AGM? Please complete our short Zoom registration form and closer to the date you will be sent the meeting link and an Agenda.

The AGM is a formal occasion where our resident's association approve the year's accounts, receive the Annual Report from the Chair and elect the committee which comprises of the Honorary Officers:

  • Chair
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
and up to six other members such as:
  • Newsletter Editor
  • Planning advisor
  • Website Editor/Social Media
  • and up to three other members
Our constitution outlines how we work as an organisation and gives a bit more info on how the AGM is structured. 

If you are interested in joining the committee and would consider ANY of the above posts then get in touch via and we can tell you more about what the different committee roles entail etc. 

We hold about 3-4 committee meetings a year (via Zoom at the moment) and meet to discuss any activities (Carol Singing, bulb planting, our annual Fun Day etc), planning issues, and anything else affecting our neighbourhood.
