Our AGM was held online via Zoom on Thursday 12th November 2020
Circumstances of the AGM
Due to Coronavirus restrictions the Government had given flexibility in the method used to conduct a Charitable Incorporated Organisation AGM. The Trustees decided to conduct the AGM by proxy, the AGM agenda and reports pack was published on our website, with additional reach being given through our social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter. Voting members of the forum were each sent an email that contained the AGM agenda and reports pack, a postal ballot form and a link to an online ballot that could be completed through SurveyMonkey. The results of the ballot were broadcast using Zoom video conferencing and each item on the agenda was commented upon.

RMNF is following the UK Government’s advice and will not be organising any events until the crisis is over.
We are fortunate to live in a wonderful area and we all know nature can be a powerful force for good in difficult circumstances. Our moors provide space for us to exercise and enjoy the fresh air, they can inspire us, lift our spirits and educate us.
Spring is here and we hope you’ll be able to take the opportunity to enjoy it. Please remember it’s the season for bird nesting and lambing – so please respect the moors and those who try to earn their living from grazing sheep and cattle.
