Volunteers Needed

Can you spare some time?


We are seeking a new treasurer and, ideally, would start on the 1st April.  A period of shadowing with the current Treasurer can then take place until a formal handover at the AGM in October.  The Treasurer's role is straightforward as many of the functional aspects of the accounts are dealt with by HQ.  You do not need to be an accountant or book-keeper but just have a good understanding of numbers.

Please contact Dominic Hill on 07712 133197 or email for more details

Membership Secretary

We need a new Membership Secretary.  The key tasks are keeping a list of Suffolk members with changes received from HQ each month.  Also sending a welcome pack and information to new members.  The current Membership Secretary will help with learning the role.  For more information please contact Peter Maddison at
