Please enquire now or nominate by contacting our chairman Damien Sommerville or secretary Sandy Kimber via the CONTACT US page.
*If your skills / interests fall outside the areas mentioned there could still be a place for you, please get in touch.

We've just undertaken a review of our 5 year strategic plan and one of our focuses for the next 12 months or so will be on you - to make sure we're meeting your expectations and delivering exactly what you need from us. We'll be providing opportunities for you to tell us what you think we do well, what you think we need to do better and what you think we've missed altogether. If you already have some thoughts you'd like to share we'd love to hear from you - all feedback will be greatfully received. PROVIDE FEEDBACK
