The Bishopston Society is a membership organisation with over 170 members and an active committee with a range of interests and local knowledge.
The committee is composed of interested volunteers, who work on their own special responsibilities as well as collectively. Its members are elected annually at the Society's AGM.
Current committee members, with some of their responsibility/interest areas, are as follows:-
- Nick Plant - Chair and e-Services
- Dick Farrow - Treasurer
- Joanna Towner - Meetings Secretary and Local Groups
- Lionel White - Membership Secretary
- Neil Embleton - Planning
- Simon Randolph - Website and Newsletter Editor
- Kevin Molloy - Community Partnership
- Chris Wallace - Traders and Trees
The committee meets regularly, typically every six weeks. Between meetings committee members pursue their special responsibilities, individually or in sub-groups.
Any member of the Society is welcome to sit in on meetings or join our committee. Guests are invited along to contribute on specific or specialist topics or projects from time to time.
The committee's efforts are supplemented by a number of valued helpers, each with their own responsibility/interest areas, including:-
- Rose Boswell - Communications
- Richard Buist - Planning and Auditing
- Jenny Hoadley - Meetings
- Alison Griffies - Social Media
We invite members to get in touch to pitch your own ideas on activities we could or should add to those we are already doing, especially if you can help with them or offer a lead! We also hope to fill gaps by recruiting additional committee members or volunteer helpers.
Our previous work on Licensing, now in abeyance, is a key example - please get in touch if you are interested in help us resume this valuable area of work.......or supply your own ideas on what you think we (or you) should be doing!
