Membership Secretary

After years of sterling service our Membership Secretary, Heather Barrington, wishes to retire, so we are looking for a volunteer to take over this post.

Heather says that it is not an onerous task and has compiled a summary of the duties which is available online.

The Society will provide the necessary software for anyone prepared to take over, if not already owned.

Any one interested should contact the Hon. Secretary.
