Park friends begin hunt

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

Friends of Over­toun Park are look­ing for a new sec­re­tary as one of their long­est serv­ing mem­bers is set to step down.

Therese Reid has been sec­re­tary of the group since its in­cep­tion five years ago, but is hav­ing to stand down due to work com­mit­ments.

Chair of the group Elaine Devlin paid trib­ute to Therese and said: “She’s been a bril­liant sec­re­tary, she al­ways works hard and re­ally cares about the park.

“She is now hav­ing to stand down as the work load from her job is prov­ing dif­fi­cult to bal­ance with the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of be­ing sec­re­tary. She will still be a mem­ber of the group though.”

Friends of Over­toun Park are a vol­un­tary com­mu­nity group. They aim to im­prove the fa­cil­i­ties in the park and to en­cour­age more peo­ple to visit the park by host­ing events and fam­ily fun days.

And now the group are seek­ing a re­place­ment.

The role of sec­re­tary in­volves:

min­utes and li­aison­ing with the chair per­son in fi­nal­is­ing min­utes.

the min­utes to all mem­bers.

the meet­ing place for meet­ings.

all mem­bers be­fore meet­ing to in­form them of meet­ing.

the data­base up

to date.

all vol­un­teers on data­base to ask to as­sis­tance.

Con­tact­ing youth groups, church groups and out­side or­gan­i­sa­tions to in­form of events and ask to vol­un­teers.
