Moseley School of Art Association - The Whole School Reunion 2012
www.moseley-art-school.co.uk, 8 Sept 2015 [cached]
THE 2012 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING After being called to order by new member Trevor Phillips ('63) with the school bell, the President, Graeme Collins, opened the Annual General Meeting by welcoming everyone to the 10th. reunion organised at the school by the Association.
...
The most important items were the election and appointment of officers, these being the re-election of Graeme Collins as President, the re-election of Bob Ashby as Academic Officer, and the appointment of Wendy Collins as Honorary Secretary.
...
The meeting had previously been reminded that, following an unsolicited meeting in 2003 with a representative from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Graeme Collins had been provided with a very favourable indication that a large scale grant in the order of £1.2 Million would be positively considered if an application was made. The representative had made the approach to Graeme following the airing of a live radio broadcast from the school during the 2003 Reunion at the school, when the staff at the Heritage Lottery Fund had been impressed by the case made for the refurbishment. Graeme had passed this information to Mr. Arain, representative of the owners, the same day.
...
The President stated that Mr. Arain said that a grant is, in fact not available, despite Graeme having obtained confirmation directly from the Major Grants Officer for the Heritage Lottery Fund just before the meeting.
...
The works in question were, in fact very tasteful, and Graeme informed Mr. Arain that many of our members felt that they could not support an exhibition at the school while unrealistic constraints which amounted to censorship were being imposed.

The former students were summoned to attend the Annual General Meeting by the ringing of the school bell, and meeting commenced at 11.45 with a warm welcome from the President, Graeme Collins, who called for the Noise to set the tone for the meeting . . . and after some gentle encouragement, those present created the loudest noise possible (absolutely deafening!), sustaining it for a full 20 seconds.
Apologies Graeme stated that he had received 120 apologies, 12 of these being from overseas members.
...
The most important items were the election and appointment of officers, these being the re-election of Graeme Collins as President, the re-election of Bob Ashby as Academic Officer, and the appointment of Wendy Collins as Honorary Treasurer.
...
After discussion, Graeme had agreed to assist the owners by organising a reunion and exhibition to engender support for a grant to cover the cost of the refurbishment to the building's facade.
Graeme organised the two-week 'Spring Exhibition of Works by Former Students' at the school in May, 2003, sparing no effort to gain maximum publicity for the need for a grant.
The initiative involved nearly four months of virtually full-time work by Graeme and his wife, Wendy, including arrangements for full coverage by the Press, including a two-hour Radio West Midlands show broadcast live from the school, hosted by Carl Chinn, and the Exhibition was officially opened in fine style by former student and UB40 member Brian Travers.
...
On the final day of the Exhibition, a young lady appeared unannounced who asked to speak to Graeme. She explained that she was the Major Grants Officer from the Birmingham office of the Heritage Lottery Fund, had become aware of the exhibition and grant appeal from the Radio WM show, and felt that ours was a very worthwhile cause. She and Graeme had a long discussion about the necessity and viability of a grant being made, and the Grants Officer, having been impressed by the case made, provided Graeme with an assurance that a grant of £1.2 (the apparent estimate of costs at the time) would be available, subject to an application being made. This was an offer in principle of a grant for the full amount of the costs.
Graeme had earlier set aside three years to achieve the grant, and there we were, just eighteen months later, with the offer having been achieved. Later that day, Graeme passed this information to Mr. Javed Arain, for the owners, to pursue.
...
Graeme stated that the Association should now concentrate on promoting the interests of its own members.
Whatever the results of any meetings to which we might be invited by the school owners, however unlikely, our members are now looking toward a bright, new, happy and self-fulfilling future, with emphasis on the promotion of our own interests and careers instead of the financial aspirations of others.
Financial Statement On behalf of the Treasurer, the President briefly discussed the Association's finances and announced that we have a satisfactory balance at the bank.
Election of OfficersThe President, Graeme Collins, invited proposals for the office of President. In the interests of democracy, he specifically invited our (now excluded) self-appointed representative to shoulder the burden of becoming President himself, in order that he might legitimately represent the membership. The invitation was declined. There being no other proposals, those members present voted unanimously to re-appoint Graeme as President for the forthcoming year.

Wendy and Graeme know their way around, and can advise on any aspect you might want to know more about - how to travel, arrange connections, getting about Venice, the principal sights and where to stay, where to eat etc.

June (Flight ZB5480) from Birmingham Airport (the Moseley Art Special) with Graeme and Wendy Collins.
...
Wendy and Graeme have visited Venice each year for the last ten years and know the island well.
...
Hotel: Graeme and Wendy have stayed at the 4 Star Hotel Sant'Elena ten times, and have negotiated a very economical rate for a three-night stay of approximately £350 (£175pp / Double Room, B&B), or £415 (£207.50pp / Junior Suite B&B) both rates inclusive of taxes although a small 'City Tax' is payable for each night.
...
Way back in 2003, a major exhibition at the school of works by former students was planned by our President, Graeme Collins to draw attention to the plight of the once-proud architectural jewel where many thousands of children who displayed a precocious talent were selected to study for a career in Art.
...
The exhibition drew a huge amount of interest, and resulted in an approach to Graeme Collins by the Major Grants Officer of the Heritage Lottery Fund, where the offer of a grant in principle was made, subject to a formal application by the owners. This information was passed to the owners during the same day.
...
In a statement following disclosure of the successful Heritage Lottery Fund award on the HLF website, our President, Graeme Collins said:

As usual, Graeme and Wendy will attend with a floral tribute from the Association to let Gillian's nearest and dearest know that her former schoolfriends are with her in their thoughts.

The role of President requires a virtual full-time commitment, and is one that Graeme has managed for the last ten years. Other commitments have arisen during the last two years, however, that mean that Graeme and Wendy simply don't have the time or energy (despite having the motivation) to organise a reunion this year.

One of the projects with which our President, Graeme Collins has been involved for the last six months is the creation of a memorial to those who have either given or hazarded their lives to protect the freedom of the people of Britain. The feature will also honour those who are at present serving in the armed forces.
This is a project very close to Graeme's heart, as he feels that not only should we be grateful for the selfless sacrifice by the many who made Britain great, it should be a reminder that their sacrifices should not have been made in vain by allowing the freedom and prosperity we have hitherto enjoyed to be needlessly eroded. It has already been agreed that the memorial will be created on a public open site in Bromsgrove, just south of Birmingham and be maintained in perpetuity by Bromsgrove District Council.
Why Bromsgrove? Graeme, who has social links with the town, was informed during conversation with the Chairman of Bromsgrove District Council that no memorial to the fallen was ever provided in a public place within the town - an astonishing anomaly. Graeme, together with a small committee which includes a retired Army major and a practising barrister is preparing the way to raise support and funding for the project. The campaign committee will be named THANKSS - in allusion to honouring those who have been killed and who are still serving within our armed forces.
The Competition A great deal of public relations, advertising, fundraising and marketing will be needed over the next two years or so, and the organisation, which is currently undergoing transition to a registered charity, will need an effective logo that can be used in the many forms necessary - and that's where, it's hoped, members of the Association will come up trumps ! Based on the above, Graeme would like to invite former pupils to enter a design competition for a logo containing the letters THANKSS that will :
