The Swan Clewer Community Interest Company owns and runs The Swan in Clewer, Windsor. It has over 200 investors of all shapes and sizes, and two major share holders through Windsor and Eton Brewery and The Green Room School. The Swan is unique - it is a pub, it is a community hub, and it is a school. No other place is like it in the UK.
Each year we hold an AGM in the summer out in The Courtyard to let in as many investors as possible. Our AGMs have the school, the pub and the community present an update. There is also an opportunity for questions. Documents, videos, minutes et al can be found via this page.
Our second birthday past a few weeks ago but due to Covid restrictions, it made running the AGM extremely difficult. We therefore delayed it until we could do it in a safe and legal way. The day was called 'Freedom Day' when the last of the restrictions were lifted, we called it our 'The Swan AGM'.
Our evening was opened by Soul Duo who provided some excellent music as people arrived. They are our first band in over a year due to covid restrictions.
The Presentation Slides
This year the slides were a bit more concise along with the overall presentation. It was slick and belied the amount of preparation it took by all the presenters and those who supported them.
The Minutes of the AGM 2021
We have been quite open with the AGM holding it in The Courtyard of the pub with the event being streamed ive to Facebook. Information here is to help people understand about the CIC, and clearly demonstrate that ANY and ALL profits are re-invested back into the pub to allow further refurbishment activities.
Why not take the opportunity to subscribe to The Swan's YouTube channel? You should be able to get notifications and access to new content as soon as it is uploaded. You can of course upload your own too. We are trying to preserve these videos for the future.
The Presentation Slides
The slides presented on the day were quite long and detailed; they also had a lot of "build-up" for the financial graphs too. We have condensed these down to something a little more readable and manageable. They are presented here in PDF format using your browser's inbuilt application. This should render correctly for most modern browsers and devices.
