It is responsible for all of the trading activity of the organisation, including the successful Harbour Café. This will extend to include the café facility at the new Larick community facility, as well as the campsite. This is a very exciting time for all involved in both organisations as the construction of the long-awaited community and sports centre is likely to be complete around the end of November. They hope to be in the new building early in the new year, with all the opportunities and challenges that will bring.

Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!

Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
