3. Code of Conduct at WS Meetings.

We always aim to make Walworth Society meetings open, friendly and respectful of everyone who speaks. To help us ensure all are given an opportunity to have their voice heard and feel comfortablee when speaking, the WS committee has drafted a code of conduct for meetings.

We will introduce the draft code of conduct at the May meeting and it will then be open to comment and revision for agreement at a future meeting. The draft can be found by clicking here. We look forward to everyone’s thoughts.
