Any member wishing to raise an agenda item or to nominate another member for the committee should send the item or nomination in writing, by letter or email, to our Secretary, no later than Friday 27th October. Any nomination for the committee should be supported by a proposer and a seconder, both of whom should be existing members of FoBR.

Your current committee is:

  • Chair: Helene Laanest

  • Treasurer: Eric Curtis (standing down).
  • John Appleton (standing down).
  • Jane Hardman (standing down).

As you can see there are some upcoming vacancies on the committee. We encourage anyone to who is interested to tell us so that we can do the formal nominations necessary.
