UPDATE 1st December 2023
Following the positive response to our survey, we sent off the documentation to Petanque England in early November.
We are now waiting on the final go ahead from Colin Roper, the President of Petanque England, and we will post an update here as soon as we have this.
As you may be aware, the Suffolk Coastal Petanque Alliance Management Committee has, for some time, been looking at forming an official Region under Petanque England.
At present we fall under the Anglia Region, the proposal to create our own Region has been approved by the Anglia Regional Management Committee, and we are now at the stage where we need to formally apply to Petanque England. As part of this process we need to have certain paperwork in place, and one of these is a Regional Constitution. Rather than go through the process of writing one from scratch, we have taken an existing constitution and amended it to better fit our requirements. The advantage of this is that we know that Petanque England have already approved this constitution, meaning we have a greater chance of having our own approved likewise.
Following a meeting at The Riverside Centre on Sunday 15th October, we committed to posting the constitution, an FAQ page, Officer nomination forms and minutes from this meeting. These are all available from the links below.
Please send any feedback, including your acceptance of the proposed constitution to [email protected] before 27/10/2023
*UPDATE* In the Minutes, the date for nominating for the committee was incorrectly put as 22nd October, this should have been 27th October.
We have now received sufficient approvals to the draft constitution and enough nominations to proceed. We are now at the stage where we would like to have a rough guide on how many people would be interested in taking a Suffolk Coastal Regional Petanque England License and how many of those would like to participate in the Inter Regional Championships.
With this in mind, it would be really helpful if you could complete the survey below before Sunday 5th November.
