Help, more volunteers needed...

John Cottle, Chairman of The Friends of Bradford on Avon Community Health Care and his colleagues Barbara and Denise have kindly been providing an interim Committee for the Leg Club. But from the 19th November 2014 we need to form our own Leg Club Committee and open our own bank account. Derek Glover has kindly offered to be the new Chairman.

We need to recruit volunteers for the post of Secretary and Treasurer. The posts will be supported by the Project Manager, Amanda Brookes.

There will only be 3 meetings a year. Can you spare the time?

If so, please speak to Amanda Brookes on 01225 860011 or 860016.
