Thinking about being a Trustee? It’s great way to support your local community and we have some roles available in Stafford District at the moment that may suit YOU!
Stafford North End Community Association are a group of volunteers who maintain the Stafford North End Community Centre which provides recreation and leisure activities for their local community. The facilities are available for both private hire and for community groups, and provide a well needed meeting place for the local community. The trustees are looking for a Treasurer and a Secretary to join them to assist their management of the community centre. Could this be you?
The Treasurer will work with the Chair of the Trustees to help manage the day to day finances, assist with planning budgets for repairs and maintenance, help with grant funding and preparing annual accounts in conjunction with an external auditor.
The Secretary role involves taking minutes at the Trustees meetings, maintaining membership records and liaising with the Chair of the Trustees, Treasurer, Hall Manager and Bookings Manager.
The Trustees meet 5 times per year, plus at an AGM, usually in the early evenings, so this is a great opportunity to volunteer around any existing work commitments, whilst also giving back to your local community!
