31 January 2019RTC Sports Centre - Open Evening 13 February
The Trustees of the Rede, Tyne and Coquet (RTC) Sports Centre in Otterburn are appealing for your help.
The Centre, which is managed by a small group of trustees and volunteers, is in urgent need of additional help to stay open.
Gill Chilvers, the Chair of the Trustees, asks that people with a couple of hours to spare each month would be most welcome. If you have a specific skill relevant to the Centre such as in social media, marketing, planning events such as the Rede River Rocks music festival, maintenance of the grounds, health and safety, fundraising or human resources then these are especially welcome.
But any time or skill you could contribute would help save this important community resource.
For those interested to find out more, the Trustees are hosting an open evening at the Centre on Wednesday, 13 February, between 7pm and 9pm. Food and drinks will be provided.
For further information please contact Gill by email at email@example.com
