VOLUNTEER RUN CLUBS NEED
We are still looking for someone to help in the galley for 3 Icicle Open races:-
29th Jan, 12th Feb and 26th Feb from 11am(ish) to 2.30 pm(ish)
No experience necessary :) if you can smile at the customers and take their money, make lots of hot drinks and load a dishwasher you will be fine!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
As many will know Jane, Nicky and Sue have been busy behind the scenes of the galley for the last 3 years and we are now looking for a new galley committee. This does not mean you have to be in the galley every week as all members help. The job was split between admin (preparing/updating rota). Sue is happy to prepare the initial rota so it would be ensuring swaps are sorted etc. Jane would keep the fridge and freezer stocked with essentials like milk, bread, cheese, chips etc and Nicky would organise the larger catering events such as Open Meetings, Christmas Lunch, Bonfire Spuds etc with lots of help from Sue and Jane and other willing volunteers. There is no expectation for any one person to take on everything - we would like a committee of 3-4 to share the load. Please email Tania if you would like to get more involved and think you could help feed the hungry sailors and/or the party goers. It is great fun and the best way to meet other members
