BVRA Social Secretary Vacancy

Judith Collins has now stepped down as our Social Secretary as she is moving out of Barkham.

The Social Committee are currently sharing the social secretary duties between them so the social events are continuing, but we are still looking to replace Judith on a permanent basis. Please consider volunteering to take on this important and interesting role on behalf of the Barkham community. We will be happy to provide more details as to what the role entails and to support the new Social Secretary as they “learn the ropes”.

Alternatively, if would like to help but do not feel able to take on the leading role, the Social Committee is always looking for new members and ideas for events so please consider helping by joining the committee. Please contact Stewart Richardson here for more information.
