Reading Hydro CBS is made up of members and directors.
The members are ordinary people enthused about the project who have paid a pound to join the group. They all have one vote at our AGMs and as well as supporting in raising awareness they (and athers) are most welcome to participate in regular members’ meetings and Action Evenings where we work on practical activities to progress the scheme.
The directors are also ordinary people just like the members, but they’ve decided to take on more responsibility and have stood for election at our AGM. They meet regularly to make sure everything is going properly to plan.
The current directors of the new Community Benefit Society are:
Anne Wheldon, Sarah Rigby, Sophie Fenwick-Paul, Tony Cowling, Anthony Simpson and Erica Purvis.

Reading Hydro is a Community Benefit Society (CBS). This means that we’re a democratic co-operative that serves our community. Our profits go to the community as well. You can find out more here about community benefit societies.
