History of GMPRG

GMPRG was originally inaugurated in 2003 and named Great Missenden Parish Revitalisation Group. View original constitution

GMPRG’s last Chair, John Skrimshire, passed away in November 2016 and John Martin retired as Treasurer, leaving the Secretary, Sonia Brock, as the only official link with the Group.

Having volunteered as a member of the Prestwood revitalisation sub-group (PRG), Carole Eaden kindly agreed to take over as Acting Chair with Tony Pennell as Acting Treasurer in 2017, so that the GMPRG could stay afloat. Several meetings were held in order to build up a new team of volunteers prior to an Annual General Meeting being held on 22 January 2018.

2018 AGM – Relaunch and Update

At the 2018 AGM, it was agreed that the Group should be renamed to Great Missenden & Prestwood Revitalisation Group (incorporating the villages of Ballinger, South Heath & Heath End) and the Constitution was updated.

Members of GMPRG’s sub-group, Prestwood Revitalisation Group (PRG), also formally became members of GMPRG’s new committee at the 2018 AGM.
