This Notice and Form can be completed online below or downloaded for postal submission by the link at the bottom.

Proxy Notice

I direct my proxy to vote on the resolutions as proposed at the Annual General Meeting, as directed below. If no voting instructions are given the proxy can use his/her discretion when voting, including in relation to any other business which arises at the meeting or at any adjournment.

Voting Form

I certify that by submitting this form I, as the individual named above, am eligible to vote as a member of Wheel Easy Leisure Cycling Limited and that my voting instructions are as indicated above.

Explanatory Notes to Resolutions

  1. Agenda Item 17, Resolution 15: It is proposed to maintain the Membership fees at £5 for the year commencing 1st April 2021.
  2. Agenda Item 18, Resolution 16: As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is proposed that membership fees for the year commencing 1st April 2020 will be waived. Members who have already paid for that year will receive a fees holiday for the year commencing 1st April 2021.
  3. Agenda Item 19, Resolution 17: Wheel Easy Members subscribe a modest sum (currently £5pa) to cover running costs and events such as Travellers’ Tales, AGM, etc. As a club with no premises, our expenses are relatively low and less than subscription income. Over time we have therefore had an increasing bank balance which is circa £4,700 now. The committee has made donations to good causes from time-to-time. This resolution, if approved, is to seek formal Member approval for this practice within a formal framework in that the Management Committee will establish a maximum value both for individual donations and the sum of donations for each financial year, having regard to prudent financial management of the Company. The preference is to donate to registered charities. Other requests will be considered as long they meet HMRC definitions for Companies Limited by Guarantee, such as WELC. Members are encouraged to put forward suggestions for donations within this policy.
