Want to get involved?
We are looking for people to help us in these areas at the Arts Centre.

  • Buildings Group
    This small, informal and friendly group meets monthly and keeps an eye on all things "building"  from a broken hinge, roof on a shed, dealing with service contracts, meeting contractors, making recommendations regarding major building projects, redecoration etc etc.
    We need somebody to Chair and coordinate the group and to produce brief minutes/notes of our meetings. If you would like to wear these shoes and keep us "in order and on track" please give John Cadmore a call on 01747 828333.
  • Chaperones
    To be present for productions where we have children performing. Must need to be willing to undergo the requisite checks. Please get in touch with Jenny Parker (Chair) if you can help.
