Your Club Needs You
We’re looking to expand our loyal group
of 7 Committee Members.
As the club continues to grow and improve
there are a number of roles we could really do with some help with (and even
if there’s not a specific role that you feel would suit you we’d love to
have you involved with the committee any way – there are plenty of things to
get your teeth into).
Our next committee meeting is on 7th December, we’d love for you to come
along to see what it’s all about before committing to anything – a kind of
try before you buy offer! It’s by no means a hugely time-consuming
commitment – we meet approx. once every 1-2 months.
Specifically, the roles we’re looking to fill include:
If you’re interested in any of these roles
(or just getting involved more generally) please
