Social Secretary

27/02/2015

As many of you will already know, Dave Cowell has decided to step down from his position of Social Secretary following his excellent performance in the role - undoubtedly going out on a high following last week's awards night.

So the club is now on the look out for one or more people to replace him. Following discussion by the club's committee it's been agreed that this role could be carried out by a small group of club members, with one of them taking overall responsibility and a place on the committee.

The role includes taking the lead on the arrangements for the summer social runs, the 'Not Cracker' fancy dress run and breakfast in December and the Annual Awards celebration evening.

There will be plenty of advice and support from the committee for whoever takes the role on.

If you'd like to find out more (either on your own, or with others) post below, post a message on the club message or contact Ian Carpenter.
