Board Meetings and AGMs

The Board aim to meet every couple of months to ensure progress is managed and momentum is maintained.  Our meetings are open to interested parties to attend – please provide us with prior notice via our ‘Get Involved’ page.

We hold Annual General Meetings (AGMs) for:

  • Harborough Energy (HE) – after March (for company formalities) 
  • Harborough Solar One (HS1) – around November (open to all members)

To keep our members fully informed and as part of our long standing commitment to public transparency, here are the official minutes summarising our meetings (in reverse chronological order):

Board Roles and Structure 

Harborough Energy has a flexible approach to roles and structure.   We do not currently have a Chair, Chief Executive, Financial Dir, etc – all our Directors are volunteers who share responsibilities and pool their skills. 

The Harborough Solar One roles have been allocated – primarily to meet our Community Benefit Society rules, to facilitate the AGMs and comply with the Community Shares handbook.

The following table may help you understand how we are structured and how the two organisations relate to each other:

Current Post Holders:

HE Position (Role)

HS1 Position** (Role)

Peter Jones OBE Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member – Chair)
Darren Woodiwiss Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member)
David Robbins Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member)
Gavin Fletcher Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member – Treasurer)
John Twidell Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member)
Sharon Burke Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member)
Neil Burke Director ‘Director’ (Management Committee Member – Secretary)
     
Donna / Sarah * Operational Support Operational Support
     
Previous Post Holders:     
Oliver Savage Director  Management Committee Member (Secretary)
Judith Waddington Director  Management Committee Member

Notes:
* Donna and Sarah are from MyAdminSupport, a local company who are contracted by Harborough Energy on a part time basis to provide key day-to-day functions and operational support across the two organisations.

** Directors – We refer to ‘Directors’ but HS1 is registered via the Financial Conduct Authority Mutuals Public Register rather than Companies House – who don’t display a register of HS1 directors.  As stated in the www.uk.coop guidance “In a society, members have the right to appoint and dismiss directors and determine the affairs and rules of the society” – this is our “Board of Management” developed from the initial setup (Peter, Darren, David and Oliver).  We now have Neil as ‘Secretary’ supporting the Board.  These roles are referred to in our Annual Accounts (produced for us by Master Accounting) and rotated/extended/approved at the AGMs.
