AGM Update

The Buckshaw Village Community Association Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday 30th April and we are pleased to announce that we have increased our Committee Members to 11 individuals and appointed a new Chair and Vice Chair for the Committee.

Our revitalised Committee now consists of Stuart Knowles, who is our longest serving Committee Member and stepping up as Chair, Lee Williams, who although new to the Committee has taken on the role of Vice Chair, Mark Thompson, who assumes the role of Finance Officer, returning Committee Members Mark Jarnell, James Oldham, David Pimlott and Ian Gadsdon (who has joined the committee after a period of being Co-Opted), and brand new Committee Members James Renshaw, Dawn Yeaman, Andy Howlett and Lewis Lane.

We have nine places remaining on the Committee after the resignations of outgoing Chair Craig Lee, Rachel Fowler, Jeni Hann, Conrad Lea, Phil Glaiser and Rick Jones, who have all stepped down over the last few months. We would like to thank each and every one of them for all of their hard work whilst being on the Committee.

We are always looking for volunteers, so if you are interested in joining the Committee, or just want to help out at one of our events, then please email your interest to community@buckshaw.org
