Annual General Meeting
Wednesday, 18th May 2016 at 18h30
Silwood School of Cookery, Silwood Road, Rondebosch
Our Annual General Meeting this year will start with a presentation by Kate Schrire, founder and Director of The Creamery Ice Cream Company, followed by a light supper.
Inspired by her work with Slow Food and non profit activism, Kate Schrire opened The Creamery Ice Cream Company in 2011. Since then, the company has grown into a beloved Cape Town brand with three ice cream cafes by sticking to its original concept: natural ice cream, handmade with local, seasonal ingredients. Kate will discuss her experiences starting and running a small food business, as well as provide some tastes of their product, and answer your questions.
As some members of your committee are not able to serve in the next year, we would appreciate nominations for enthusiastic new members to the committee, and for this purpose a nomination form is attached.
Please ensure that your nominee signs acceptance of your nomination and that it is forwarded to Lorna van Besouw by Monday 16th May. The minutes of the previous AGM and the financial accounts are also attached to this notice. The annual report will follow later.
After the AGM formalities we’ll enjoy the following meal, with the new Slow Food Remhoogte 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon.
Burmese Chicken Curry, Beef Korma, Basmati rice
Poppadoms, Rotis, Sambals
If you wish to attend only the talk and the AGM there will be no charge. However if you are staying on for supper, please let us know for catering purposes.
The cost for the meal, including wine is R130 for members.
Book with Lorna van Besouw as usual (see below) and please indicate if you are coming to the AGM, talk and meal or AGM and talk only. Bookings will close on Monday 16th May.
When booking please pay into Cape Town Slow Food at FNB, Grassy Park, code 203109, account number . Please pay by EFT, and do not deposit cash or a cheque, as these are very expensive. When doing this please put your name as a reference on the transfer statement. Payment will confirm your booking. If you cannot pay by EFT, then please bring cash to the meeting, but a booking will render you liable even if you do not come.
Silwood School of Cookery is at the bottom (eastern end) of Silwood Road in Rondebosch.
There is limited parking inside the gates and plenty of space in the surrounding roads.
