CALL OUT FOR NEW ADMIN HELP AND TRUSTEES

We need a larger team of folk to carry the society through our next stages. The Big Lottery paid for a full-time Project Development Manager and a Volunteer Co-ordinator. Now their grant has finished Claire Bebbington is employed as Community Boat Co-ordinator and runs the Hazel Project ongoing with a team of volunteers and volunteer crew, under our part-time skipper, Chris Leah.

We are also looking at the future of the boatyard in Stalybridge; whether or not we buy it from TMBC a lot of planning work needs to be done.

Plus we need at least three Trustees to carry the work forward and check compliance with Charity governance.

So – CAN YOU HELP US?

If you think you would be interested in any kind of admin work in any of the fields above, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Training is given, we just need some dedication and enthusiasm for the projects.

Our AGM is being held in our shop, 173 Stamford Street Ashton under Lyne at 12 noon on 23rd April so please come along and meet us there. Or just email general@wcbs.org.uk

Thank you
