Annual General Meeting
Saturday 29th June, Arlington, East Sussex
Dear ELC supporter,

You are warmly invited to attend this year’s Annual General Meeting on Saturday 29th June 2019 from 2.00 – 4.30pm. The meeting will be held in the village hall in Arlington, East Sussex, nearby to our second site which has been granted temporary planning permission to create three small farms and for which we are looking for applicants.

Prior to the meeting itself there will also be a short tour of the Arlington site at 12 noon by our Site Development Director Oli Rodker - so a great chance for potential applications or interested locals to come have a look and ask questions.

The meeting is open to non-members, but if you would like to join the Ecological Land Cooperative as a steward or investor member ahead of the meeting then please get in touch with Oliver on

After the meeting we will be gathering on our site to celebrate the construction of our new barn (completed during the last month) with a ribbon cutting ceremony!

This will be followed by an informal bring and share picnic on the land and would be lovely to meet some of our supporters and followers.

We would appreciate you letting us know if you would like to attend. Please RSVP to Oliver Bettany (, letting us know if you plan to join us for the evening picnic and/or site tour as well as the meeting itself.
Plenty of parking is available in the village hall car park which is a 5 minute walk from the Arlington site entrance. The village hall is a short 10 minute bicycle ride from Berwick station. See this map for details.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. We hope to see you on 29th June!
