The running of a group such as ours requires a number of people to organise the different functions especially at our monthly meetings. It also requires people with fresh ideas to help us produce an interesting and varied programme. We would like to hear from anyone who has an interest and a small amount of time available to assist the current committee. There are many varied things to do and we would welcome nominations for election to the Committee at the AGM. It is an interesting, but not arduous position. Please ring Alan Thompson on 01283 701130 if you feel you would like to participate in preserving local history. Also if you know anyone who would like to get involved, please nominate them.
