19 Aug 15: Club Working Day – Sat 29th August

The club is intending to hold a working day on Saturday 29th August commencing at 10:00am.  The main thrust is in two areas as follows:

  1.        1.  The reorganization and erection of new pitch perimeter boards.
  2.        2.  General tidying of the area around the 1st XV pitch and fences.

The old adage of many hands make light work applies, so it would be good if as many of you as possible could spare a couple of hours to assist and it would be good to see some new faces instead of it being left to the regular few who always make the effort.  Those attending should bring along some garden implements (primarily cutting utensils – loppers, hedge shears, secateurs etc) and those assisting with boards should be equipped with an electric drill plus screwdriver bits.

Your assistance is appreciated.

 

14 Aug 15: Shaun Neaves takes over as Club Chairman

It was announced at the club’s AGM that Jon Sargent was to take a break from his club duties as Club Chairman due to work pressures. In the intervening period those pressures have not abated and as a consequence Jon has informed the committee that unfortunately he is not able to give the commitment that this important role demands. He has reluctantly had to step down from the position with immediate effect.

Jon stepped into the role of Chairman just over two years ago with a change of regime during what was a difficult period for the club’s committee and he fully intends to remain involved with the club. He hopes to assist both the club and the committee where possible, in a less time consuming role. In the interim Shaun Neaves has been fulfilling the role as Acting Club Chairman and following Jon’s decision to step down has accepted the committee’s unanimous invitation to formally take over the role as Chairman. Shaun will also continue in his role of Chairman of Selection.

Volunteers Required – Pitchside Board Sales
posted: May 21 2015

 

This season’s Sponsorship & Advertising campaign is progressing well but assistance is required to maximise pitchside advertising sales. The success of the club in being able to generate board sales in recent seasons has meant that the Sponsorship Officers role has become greater than can be fulfilled by one person. As a consequence the club is looking for a volunteer, or team of volunteers to take on the responsibility for pitchside board sales as a standalone role.

The role could be fulfilled by either a single person, or ideally a small team of volunteers. Whilst the period of the closed season is the busiest period as the club targets funding for the new season and looks to generate sales accordingly. However; this is a year round role with no defined deadline for achieving sales. Those interested in what is an extremely rewarding role should be proactive in generating leads and display a degree of dynamism and tenacity in pursuing potential leads.

Volunteers are requested to contact Bob Hayton via the Contacts page of the website

For a full description of the role click here.
