Dig In’s 7th AGM – Hopes for a Better Food Future

Open event – all welcome – Monday 10th February 2020 – 6-8pm

Christ Church Centre, 6a Morningside Road, Edinburgh, EH10 4DD

Please join us for our 7th Annual General Meeting of Dig-In Bruntsfield, your local community greengrocer. Come hear how things have gone over the last financial year and plans for the year ahead. We’ll be publishing our draft accounts to all members in advance of the meeting.

We are also delighted to be joined by Sarah-Jane Allsop from Castle Douglas Community Forum who recently took on their own community owned tourist information centre and shop ‘Heart of Galloway’ and are committed to making Castle Douglas a good food town and working closely with food producers and local retailers.

We’ll have the usual snacks and drinks and will finish up the evening with a facilitated group discussion on ‘Hopes for a Better Food Future’ – considering how we engage with COP coming to Scotland and our voice on the ongoing climate emergency. You can read about our volunteer Fiona’s latest vision of our ‘Game Plan for a Good Food Nation’ in our blog.

Register here and receive updates on further details.

If you’re interested in joining us, please email a statement about yourself and your experience to our Chair – isla@diginbruntsfield.co.uk – by 7th February 2019. We are happy to chat to folk who may be interested in advance of the AGM.


If you wish to raise any constitutional issues at the AGM, you can raise a motion by sending an email to our Chair – isla@diginbruntsfield.co.uk – by 7th February 2019.

We are putting forward to motions for amendments to our Model Rules which will be voted on on the night. Any changes to the rules require a 2/3 majority of votes cast on the evening.

Clause 8.1 Motion to reduce the value of single share from £25 to £5. This is to allow us to grow our membership of the organisation while hopefully reducing any financial barriers for people to join us. If you bought a share for £25 (or more) it will still be worth the same amount and we will be updating our records to ensure you would be considered to own 5 x £5 shares (or equivalent).

Clause 4.11 Motion to reduce the quorum for Members Meetings from 10% of total members (currently around 320) to 5% of total members.

If you are unable to attend on the evening and wish to find out more or vote electronically on these motions, please email us on members@diginbruntsfield.co.uk.
