The Shepherds Friendly Society recently held their 2014 AGM on the evening of Tuesday 8th July at their head office in Cheadle, with several of their members attending.

The AGM, which is held every year by the Society, welcomes all their members to take part in the meeting by allowing them to cast a vote on how the society operates as a business. After all, Shepherds Friendly does belong to its members and so it’s only right that their members get the option to join in and help put in place any directions the society takes.

In her second speech as Chairman of Shepherds Friendly, Joanne Hindle, opened the meeting with a descriptive summary of the previous financial year, which covered the past twelve months and achievements the society had made, before moving onto the formal duties of the session.

The AGM vote was administered and independently scrutinised by David Armstrong to ensure both accuracy and fairness.

We would like to say a big thank you to all members who took the time to vote this year.

Details of the full results are set to follow and they will be posted onto our website in due course.
