Community centre needs help

A GROUP that runs Pucklechurch Community Centre needs new volunteers to keep it running.

The Pucklechurch Community Association committee operates the centre in Abson Road, which has a main hall capable of hosting events for up to 160 people as well as a smaller meeting room.

The centre is used for events from weddings and parties to conferences and business meetings, and also has a kitchen for catering.

Several members of the committee will be standing down in the spring and the association is now looking for people to fill five key roles: chairman, secretary, treasurer, booking secretary and maintenance manager.

To keep the community centre going the association needs the new roles to be filled at its annual meeting in May.

Current secretary Peter Nunez said: “Do you have any experience of carrying out these roles in the past? Have you carried out a similar function elsewhere?

“Would you like to make a difference to the residents of the village, by having a significant part to play in the running of the community centre?

“We are planning to extend the building in the future and you will be directly involved in the project as it begins to take shape.

“We would also be happy to hear from residents that would like to join the committee in a non specific role.

“If you are interested in joining the Pucklechurch Community Association committee, either as a member, or by filling one of the above roles, and you can commit to attending meetings on the second Wednesday of each month, we would be pleased to hear from you.”

Anyone who is interested can come along to the centre and ask questions at the next members’ meeting, at 7.30pm on Wednesday February 8, or email Peter at
