Table Top Sale - 17 May 2015

Not long to go now until our Table Top Sale on Sunday 17 May! It's a fundraiser for us, so all income from stall fees and the mighty cake stall will go towards supporting the work of St George Community Centre.

It's also a chance for local residents to get together and buy and sell - as one person's trash is another's treasure. It's basically BS5 Booty the old-fashioned way... So pop along at 2pm next Sunday and grab a bargain. We'll also be serving tea, coffee and homemade cake. See you there!

We have space for a few extra stalls, so if you fancy joining us, please get in touch.

New Committee

We held our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 25 March, and we are delighted to say that we now have three brand new members on our Management Committee. It's great to have some enthusiastic new faces, and we have plenty of ideas and plans for the year ahead.

Very sadly, we will be saying goodbye to our Treasurer Rhiannon Reid, who announced that she would like to step down from the role after over 13 years of service. We will be advertising for a new Treasurer shortly, but would like to say a huge thank you to Rhiannon who has managed the centre's finances so effectively. A hard act to follow!

We were also really pleased that some of our hirers came to show their support at the AGM. Without the groups that use us, there simply wouldn't be a Community Centre, so thank you!

Our current Management Committee:

Tamsin Harcourt (Chair)
Jo Chesterman (Secretary)
Haylee Cowley
Nic Hope
Sally King
Heather Knipprath-Potts

  • You can commit to a 2 hour meeting every 6 weeks.
  • You are able to join our keyholder rota to open/close the centre for occasional parties and events.

Changes at the Centre

Firstly a rather belated Happy New Year to you all. We hope 2015 is going to be a busy year at St George Community Centre.

We are pleased to report that Jo Drummond has now settled in as our part-time Centre Co-ordinator. Jo is the person to talk to about hire enquiries and is available at the centre on Monday mornings, or the usual number and email at other times.

We also have some rather sad news. Kate Gascoyne, our current Chairperson, is standing down after many years serving on the Management Committee. It has been a pleasure to work with Kate, who has a passion for her local community and has helped make the centre what it is today. The rest of us on the committee would like to say an enormous thank you to Kate for her leadership and her sheer hard work. We will miss you and you are a hard act to follow.
