Volunteers needed

The club runs on work by a number of volunteers.  Office bearers volunteer their time and skills to keep the club going.  Volunteers organise and  carry out surveys, keep club records, maintain databases of membership and of bird surveys, lead outings and social gatherings, respond to enquiries from members and non-members alike, publish newsletters, organise meetings and speakers, provide club pins and badges, maintain registers of sightings, maintain a website and a host of other seldom seen administration.  Every function really needs a backup person.   

We are in need of volunteers to back up some of the work we do.

 Do you have skills you would be willing to use to keep the club going?

Adequate training can be provided.

It may be possible to job share by carrying out only some of the functions. If you are interested in joining in or assisting as back-up person,  please contact one of the Committee members.
