14 November 2017

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

In line with clause 9 of the Constitution, notice is hereby given by the Executive Committee of a Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held on Sunday 19 November 2017 at 8pm at the Husaini Shia Islamic Centre, Stanmore, HA7 4LQ, to transact the following:

1) Recitation of the Holy Qur’an and the English translation thereof

2) Consideration and adoption of the following resolution relating to the lease on our property on Grosvenor Vale, known as “the Ruislip Property”:

With regards to our property in Ruislip on Grosvenor Vale, we, the General Body of The KSIMC of London (KSIMC), hereby resolve to give the Executive Committee (EC), the mandate to negotiate and finalise a contract:

Granting a new lease for a term of 5 years to Wealdstone Football Club (2000) Limited in relation to the whole of the 12.189 acres of the Grosvenor Vale Property, which is currently leased to Ruislip Manor Sports and Social Club Limited. As part of this new lease, we will be

a. Establishing a right to use at a reasonable notice on the 8.689 acres (non-football stadium part) during the new 5-year lease term granted to Wealdstone Football Club (2000) Limited at a nominal/peppercorn rent (£nil).

b. Creating an option which enables KSIMC, upon three months’ notice (at no cost) to call for a surrender of this new lease by Wealdstone Football Club upon which KSIMC will immediately grant a lease back to Wealdstone Football Club for 3.5 acres (football stadium part) for a term equal to the remainder of the term of this new lease plus five more years.

In line with clause 9, the Executive Committee feel it is in the community’s interest to hold this discussion before the 21 days required for an EGM as this will put us into the busy Christmas period when participation in any discussion will be lower. Contractual reasons dictate a resolution to this matter is preferable before the end of 2017 and negotiations have only recently concluded yielding a Heads of Terms document in line with the above. A Special General Meeting has thus been called.

Registration will commence at 7:45pm. Both Male and Female members are encouraged to attend.
