Can you keep track of who’s booking the centre and when?
The centre building is our major asset – and an asset to the community. The Scout Group is extremely fortunate to have its own building and it shares this good fortune with other community-based organisations who are able to use the centre for a modest fee. We put the money raised back into supporting Scouting and Girlguiding in Newnham – it’s an essential part of our plan to remain financially sustainable. We’re looking for someone who can help handle requests for bookings of the centre – to keep track of when it’s in use and when it’s free. Our bookings are mostly handled by email and someone who could reply to these swiftly and work with the centre treasurer to send invoices to hirers would provide an enormous contribution to the smooth running of the place. We take a request to use the centre every fortnight or so.
If you would like to find out more about what’s involved, please contact our current booking secretary, Sylvie Chastagnol.
