Volunteers are required to cover the VACANT area shown above.

The reps. task isnít a particularly onerous one. It is simply a more local point of contact for members living in that area. Nothing else is required from the appointed rep.other than to convey any message that he canít answer to the area co-ordinator. Anything that encourages questions & feedback has to be good.

Only requirements for reps. are -

  • An interest in the association.
  • Communication skill.
  • A sense of humour.
  • Anything else is a bonus!

    If any member is interested in representing these areas please contact Denis Askham at the address as above.
