Volunteers Sought For Pavilion Management -Can You Help?

Volunteers Sought For Pavilion Management -Can You Help?

Work is now well underway on the construction of the new sports pavilion and attention is now being focused on how it will be operated when it opens early next year.

The Council hopes to establish an association or management committee including a team of volunteers who are committed to giving their time and expertise to organising the running of the pavilion and to seeing it thrive as the sporting hub of the community.

The association/management committee would be similar to the one which runs the Village Hall except that as the pavilion is expected to be exempt from business rates it will not be necessary for it to be formally registered as a charity.

We hope that the committee will comprise representatives of the user clubs, the Council and members of the community who have both the necessary skills and the pavilion's best interests at heart.

We also hope that if we can find enough committed volunteers to play their part it might be possible to generate sufficient additional income to reduce the pavilion overheads, to keep potential hire charges to a minimum and even to provide a small profit for the user clubs.

With this in mind the Council will be holding a public meeting to explain its proposals on Thursday 15th November at 6.30pm in the Village Hall, Pear Tree Road, Pilsley and we hope that those people who are committed to making a success out of the new pavilion will be able to attend.

At the meeting we will put forward our ideas, receive feedback and answer questions.

If you would like to serve on the proposed association / management committee and/or to act as a volunteer please come along to the meeting and please spread the word to other people who you think may be interested.

In the meantime if you have any questions or if you require further information on the council's proposals please contact one of the following people.
