An Urgent Priority - A Treasurer for the PCC

Our PCC urgently needs a new Treasurer. Several people are already helping or have offered to help with the Treasury function including doing the bookkeeping, banking, billing and fee administration, payroll, cheque writing and Gift Aid administration, but we still need someone willing to be Treasurer and oversee the finance operations and prepare accounts and reports for the PCC.

 Please speak to Keith for further details.

Hurley Cream Teas

A message for Soltau Centre Key Holders

We have recently had problems with groups booking the Soltau Centre who had a fob to let themselves in (or a key but not the alarm code) being unable to get in because keyholders popping into the Centre have locked or alarmed it as they leave. If you are popping in to the centre for some reason, please could you leave the Centre as you found it.

A request from Maidenhead Care

 Maidenhead Care urgently requires volunteer duty officers, to find drivers for clients, and volunteer drivers to take clients to medical appointments. Please ask all your friends if they have free time - even for only 8 hours per month for duty officers. Contact 07538 418448 during office hours or e-mail office@maidenheadcare.org.uk          

Stubbings Summer Lunch
