It's All Gone Pear Shaped

Post by Bob_H » Tue Nov 26, 2019 11:24 pm

Dear Members,
Our new committee have stood down as the old committee (Darren & Rachel Walker) have refused to hand over the Noah’s Arc account and websites etc.

I have served Noah’s Arc honestly and consistently for over 20 years. How sad that we have been brought to this by a few individuals who don’t carry the same aims and virtues that we do.

Let me first remind you of how I came into the current situation:
1) On around 20th August 2019 financial irregularities within the Noah's Arc account were reported to me and I was asked to take a custodial role of the account. I accepted the request and, on 27th August, submitted to Barclays Bank a signed Mandate Form in order for name to be added to the account's sign-in list.
2) I received no response and was informed by Mr Darren Walker that Barclays Bank had made cock-ups in processing this Mandate (his word).
3) A second form was submitted by me and the response this time was that the Bank sent to me:
4) • A letter with reference 000227(1) containing information on how to log in;
5) • A new Authentication Card;
6) • A PINsentry device
7) …providing proof that the Mandate had been processed.
8) When I attempted to sign, in my efforts were rejected. I called the Bank and was informed that my name was not on the sign-in list. They could offer no reason to me but suggested that my only available action was to speak to Mrs Rachel Walker. On informing Mrs Walker (via a phone call with Darren Walker) of this situation I was informed (yet again) that Barclays Bank had made errors in the process. At the same time I was informed by Mr Walker that his wife Rachel had managed to add his own name to the signee list.

It is my submission that Rachel & Darren Walker have manipulated control of the Noah’s Arc Account. In all bank control issues that I have read it is stated that husband & wife control of a ‘business’ account is not ‘safe’. To make it worse, they trade with Noah’s Arc and have used our website to make sales for their own personal project.

Stephen has also pointed out the fact that they attempted CANCEL our Reunion.

And that they have advised Vivien Morrison at The Imperial Hotel that they won’t attend the Reunion.

We are an un-incorporated organisation and it is true that we do not have a Constitution in place. We’ve never needed it – our Club has always been managed on trust. And yet Darren & Rachel (the only two remaining members of the committee) refuse to ignore the wishes of our members with a vote of 216 to 3 to stand down.

We cannot stand by and allow our club to be destroyed in this way by these two individuals.

Finally, I am accused of hacking our websites. Not true, and I have all the evidence I need to defend that claim. Yet, Mr Walker says he will use your funds to call me to account.

I look forward to the response of my friends.
Thank you.

I am rock solid, in my support for Bob.
Can we not take action in the county to remove these 2 ??. Or even get some advice from the Police, to see if they could investigate if a fraud could has taken place,

Bob,

When he says he is going to use your funds to take you to account, does he mean taking legal action with lawyers paid out of the Arc's funds? Surely this is unacceptable. If he takes action he does not have my permission to use said funds and I am sure I am not the only one with these thoughts.



27,

If only we had a solution. All they have to do is hand over. A huge majority (as indicated by the poll 216-3) want them to do just that.
