HELP NEEDED
 
In the last edition of Wigstons’ Voice an appeal was made for people to volunteer for the posts of: Chairman; Listing Officer; Minute Secretary and Facebook Administrator.
 
Regrettably, no individuals have come forward. At the present time the Society may have to consider closing down if we cannot at least identify a person to take over as Chairman or at least to take on one of the existing officer posts so that existing officers can move round positions. But, it needs new people to come on board to start this process off.
 
Enquiries have been with the wider membership and with people who are not yet members but to no avail yet. Please consider if there is anyone in your family or circle of friends and acquaintances who may be interested in the local built environment and who may be able to help.
 
One more area in which the Society is looking for assistance is that of Co-Ordinator to the Planning Working Group. The Group members have taken this aspect on themselves during the previous twelve months since the group was formed, but feel that the administrative part of the work needs to be separated out from the onsite and online part of the work.
 
So, to continue with the Society’s valuable work in the Borough, we need to be proactive in identifying new officers. If you, yourself do not feel able to help, whatever the reason, please look around to see if there is anyone else that could be approached.
 
If you would like to help please contact the Secretary Colin Towell on 0116 2889638 or 07813 782899
