Shareholders Meeting Proposal

Regardless of the rights and wrongs of the current problems surrounding the Villagers’ Stores, the members of the shop committee are shareholders and users of the shop themselves, and they have been duly elected at shareholders’ meetings. To suggest that they are not acting in good faith is wholly inappropriate, as is any judgement made without knowledge of the full facts.

I tend to agree with Paul Sheldon that the logical way forward is an emergency meeting. This could be open to the whole village, as everyone has an interest even if they have not had the opportunity to buy shares. Any vote would, of course, be for shareholders only. To keep such a meeting on the rails, it would certainly have to be in the hands of a neutral chairman.
