Baslow Sports Field – Volunteers required for the Trustees Committee – June 2021

Neil Mantell, Chris Lyne and Tony Buckham would like to notify the community of their intention to stand down from their roles as Treasurer, Secretary and Chairman of the Sports Field Trustees Committee in June 2021.

Tony says, ‘I will have completed a 4 year stint as Chairman, Neil and Chris having contributed many more years. We had planned to stand down in 2020, but decided we would stay on to manage the issues arising from the Pandemic. However, with the arrival of the vaccines, we can see a return to hopefully a near-normal operation over the the coming year and feel it is the right time to pass on ‘the baton’ to new volunteers. It is important that local voluntary organisations do change their officers on a periodic basis and whilst we have all found our involvement hugely enjoyable and rewarding, it really is time for some ‘new blood’ with fresh ideas to take Baslow Sports Field to its next stage of development. We appreciate many people may be reluctant to consider being involved, perhaps put off by perceived time commitments or maybe lack of experience. We can honestly say that this has not been an issue for any of us, requiring only several hours per week on average, and can be flexed easily with other commitments.’

Tony also confirmed that all three outgoing committee members will continue to be available for support and guidance as people settle into the roles. Being involved in the running of the Sports Field provides a great opportunity to meet and work with a wide range of people and organisations and is an ideal way of giving something back to the community.

Neil, Chris and Tony are available to discuss the roles – contact details are provided below.
