Village Centre Volunteers
You can become involved in helping to run the Village centre in two ways; either as a Volunteer or as a Trustee. Read on to see what's involved in each role. Either as a Volunteer or as a Trustee you will be very welcome!
Naturally, any event that takes place in the Centre usually requires helpers of some sort. This particularly applies to things such as our regular friendship lunches and pop-up coffee shop, plus tea dances, film screenings and talks. One off fundraising events such as our ceilidh, quizzes and Christmas fair need helpers too. There are plenty of other opportunities, such as our gardeners who look after the flower beds that fringe the car park.
At the moment we have a number of volunteers and we are enormously grateful to them for all the effort they put in. But we would love to get more people involved and spread the load. If you would like to get involved and be part of the team, please get in touch.
The Village Centre is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, run by a committee of Trustees who meet around two to three times a month. At our meetings we discuss the management of the Centre's finances, any issues to do with the day-to-day running of the building and make plans for future fund raising events. Plus, of course, we discuss any other issues that have come up since our last meeting.
Being a Trustee is a responsible position, but under the rules of the Charity Commissioners no Trustee can be held personally liable for any issues concerning the Centre, so if we make a loss you won't have to make up any shortfall! As a Trustee you should live locally and be prepared to attend meetings and take part in the running of the Centre. You will be able to make your views known and be part of the decision making team. We welcome new Trustees, so if you would like to become involved please get in touch.
