Can you take on a regular role?

We are need to expand our core team of volunteers to make sure we can keep delivering all our activities and our future ambitions for the park.

Committee

The Committee is the core team that meets regularly to co-ordinate FoRP’s activities. It includes the Trustees who are responsible for ensuring we are governed in line with our charitable objectives, and other co-opted members. The current members are listed below.

We urgently need at least 3 more committed Committee members, as either trustees or not, particularly for the following roles. This can be flexible, e.g. sharing or combining a role, and according to individual capacity.

  • Committee Secretary, including preparing agendas and taking minutes 
  • Fundraising Co-ordinator, to help with administering grants and donations
  • Communications, including creating newsletters and maintaining website content.

Other regular volunteering roles urgently needed

  • Sharing the organisation of summer concerts at the Bandstand
  • Organising guided walks such as our Bat Walks
  • Co-ordinating donations of memorial benches
  • Members of a projects group to help develop and monitor park improvement projects
  • A member with an interest in community safety to represent FoRP at relevant local meetings.

If you can help us in any way in our search, email Lucy and Chris at info@friendsofruskinpark.org.uk to find out more or to arrange a chat.
