Special General Meeting, 6th October in South Molton – become a committee member – #ndevon #southmolton

Dear All,

My apologies for the delay in calling an Special General Meeting of the SMBA. 6pm 6th OCTOBER GEORGE HOTEL.

The need to call this meeting is because we were not quorate in May and since then we have had one issue after another, the latest being a total IT system failure in my office meaning no access to emails or historic documents! All very frustrating.

The meeting will basically follow the same lines as an AGM with a summary of our activities, position and accounts followed by the election of officers for the forthcoming year.

If anybody wishes to stand or has any suggestions of those who might please contact me either by email, phone or pop into my office.

Contact SMBA via our membership form.


7) AOB.

A whole weekend of shopping and entertainment in South Molton

Last year (December 2015) thousands of people from across North Devon and beyond visited South Molton to go to The Winter Wonderland market on the evening of December 4th 2015, which was part of  three days of festive fun at the town’s Winter Wonderland festival.

The event, run by the South Molton Business Association has received lots of compliments and endorsements from traders and visitors alike. Here is one email below:


I’m just passing on a message from my mum and her friends who took part in the Winter Wonderland on Friday in a craft stall. She wanted to say how pleased she was with the event and that she will definitely be booking for next year. Is it possible to book these now?

Merry Christmas!
