The Club is run entirely by unpaid volunteers, who give their precious free time to teach, carry out administrative work (like the registers, waiting list, attending meetings), planning, training, learning, and much more!
The Committee is drawn from volunteers, for example parents or teachers. The Committee are nominated by the membership in the run-up to the Annual General Meeting every year. The only post that is not annually renewed is the role of President. The President is chosen by the Committee and is recommended for office to the membership at the AGM.
If you would like to play a more active role in the running of the club, or have a skill that you might be able to offer for a particular activity (for example, fundraising) please talk to our Secretary or any committee member
