Grey Lynn Residents Association Draft Rules Update 2

Yesterday the key points of the draft Rules for the association were posted on the Association’s Facebook community page and also the Facebook group page.

Missing from both posts were the first two key points of the draft Rules which are set out below. Also the link from the Association’s Facebook community page to the group page where the actual Rules can be downloaded was not correct. The correct link is: www.facebook.com/groups/greylynnresidents 

The first two key points of the draft rules:
