ROAD STEWARDS: They deliver our Town Crier magazine three times a year, collect annual subscriptions from members and feed back local concerns to the Executive Committee. The time this takes depends on how many homes are covered – some Road Stewards cover 20 or so homes near to where they live, some cover more, but the work usually takes only a few hours per year. Road Stewards are absolutely central to the success of our Association. We currently have a number of vacancies. Click here to see what we need.
AREA STEWARDS: Three times a year they deliver Town Criers to Road Stewards in their own area. They also have an intermediary role in the collection of subscriptions, and act as a conduit for information on local issues. This takes a few hours per year. We have some vacancies in our network of these much valued members.
SPORTS ADVISER: We need an adviser to keep us up to date about local sporting activities in our area, particularly to keep the Executive Committee informed about any issues that arise, and to ensure that our website information provides correct information for our members. This role could be subdivided so that different advisers are responsible for updating us about activities for various age groups.
EXECUTIVE MEMBERS: These Members are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting. Additional members are co-opted to the Executive Committee to fill vacancies, to extend the work that is undertaken on behalf of the Association, and to assist holders of particular responsibilities. The level of involvement depends on the particular responsibilities undertaken, varying from a few hours a year to many hours each week. Executive Members are expected to attend monthly evening meetings lasting two hours, currently on the first Wednesday of each month.
TECHNICAL ADVISERS: We monitor all local activities. If members have experience in any of the fields we cover, we would be pleased to call on them for advice, when needed. We hope to extend our range of advisers.
EDIT A PAGE ON OUR WEBSITE: Page editors keep the web-pages up to date. Every entry is checked by an administrator before publication, and help is available if needed.
If you wish to volunteer, or to know more about any of these roles, please let us know. You will be welcome to meet an Executive Member to discuss details - and may be able to attend relevant meetings as an observer - before making any commitment.
We shall be delighted to hear from you.
