Vil­lage cen­tre needs fresh blood

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A VI­BRANT vil­lage cen­tre needs a chair­man and sec­re­tary to en­sure its con­tin­ued suc­cess.

The Holmer Green Vil­lage Cen­tre, which is a set of two halls that are let out for most days and evenings, is seek­ing re­place­ments for the two roles.

Un­der the con­sti­tu­tion, the chair­man can only stay in the post for five years and for cur­rent chair­man James Ca­dle, that pe­riod will be up in March.

Mr Ca­dle said: “The re­quire­ment to only serve five years as chair was im­posed in the 1980s to stop the chair­man be­com­ing al­most a right for the in­cum­bent year af­ter year. How­ever, with a com­mit­tee who are mostly in their 70s or 80s, we can’t find any­one to take over from me or from our 80year old-sec­re­tary, who re­ally feels she should re­tire.”

The hall is used by around 300 peo­ple each week, such as guides, brown­ies, a playschool and a gar­den­ing club.

Any­one in­ter­ested in tak­ing on ei­ther role can call vil­lage cen­tre trustee Peter Healy on 01494 713 553 or 07770 267 996.
