Hi - does anyone feel able to respond to the appeal below?
Dave Dickson and I have been involved for a long time but I have now left the area and Dave is probably reaching his last fifty years of useful service (sorry to be so blunt, Dave).
Putting Something Back
If you are from near Bury (Lancashire) and love the outdoors, want to promote opportunities for young people to enjoy the Lakes at minimal cost, have enjoyed using the Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre in Glenridding or wish to offer your skills to running a charitable trust that keeps the centre going now is the time to step forward.
Our management committee meets every 8 weeks or so to review bookings, ensure the centre is running properly and plan its future use. Most of the current members are very long serving and some have cherished the building since it opened in the late 1970’s. We have reached the stage where new and, probably, younger committee members are needed to maintain the energy and enthusiasm that has made the centre such a success over many years.
We are looking for individuals with a wide range of skills and experience – including being in touch with young people, knowing the hills, understanding building maintenance, managing budgets and sometimes being able to get up to the Lakes to meet official bodies.
The current committee members would all tell you they enjoy the work. Some of the team spend a few days annually making minor repairs and improvements to the centre. They usually find time for a walk (these days – I gather runs may have been popular in the past!) and have a good time just staying together in the centre.
You may have heard the Jubilee Centre was looking for management committee members before. We were, but this time we really do need to recruit some new members if we are to maintain this excellent facility for the young and old from Bury and those from further afield.
Why not pay a visit to our web site:
Or see Facebook
…or if you would like to find out more from a real person call or e mail me
We are hoping to have some new committee members in place by the end of March – but if you could start sooner – or will not be available until later please let us know.
A contribution of a little time could make a huge difference to many people – so please
