Summary of Phoenix AGM

11 June 2024
Summary of Phoenix AGM

All members of Wilmslow Hockey Club and Wilmslow Lacrosse Club are automatically members of Wilmslow Phoenix Sports Club (WPSC). 

WPSC is responsible for the day-to-day running and upkeep of the grounds, clubhouse and bar, and for making the improvements around the site that make playing sport at Oakwood Farm such a pleasure. Without WPSC, this work would fall to the hockey and other sports sections to plan and organise for themselves.

Key Points from the meeting

  • Thank you to Stuart Chapman for all the work he has done for the club throughout Covid and the flooding. Stuart is stepping down as Chair.
  • Thank you to Penny Sparrow for dealing with the insurers and loss adjusters during the flooding recovery. Thanks too to Penny for many years of dedication to Phoenix and the club as a whole - Penny is stepping down as Secretary.
  • The the poor state of the grass pitches is a major issue for the club. Lacrosse have only been able to play 3 home games on the grass this season, Wilmslow Football Academy have had to use the astro at times and so have Cricket.
  • Styal Running Club is going from strength to strength and is a great asset to WPSC.
  • Finances are under the control of Tony Collier, but WPSC needs a Treasurer to work with Tony.
  • Accounts for 2023/2024 were presented and agreed at the meeting
  • No budget was presented. An Extraordinary General Meeting is to be held within 30 days to agree a budget and Treasurer.
