Those offering to stand for re-election are Margaret Ormonde (current Chair), Barry Prior (Vice Chair), Bill Harper (Treasurer). The remaining candidates are existing members, Jill Verran, Cathi Edwards, Vera Bodman.

Kate Manton has resigned after two years as Secretary. Tara Taylor and Diana Hartrup who joined the committee in 2004, are leaving, but continuing their roles as North Reading Youth Project contact and Newsletter Distributor respectively. After a year on the committee, Carol Sutton has decided to stand down. Bob Cruickshank continues to offer valuable committee support and Clive Ormonde maintains the website.

Roles will be confirmed / decided after the AGM.

Nominations to either join the committee or offer support can be given to the Secretary before the meeting, or offered, on the evening of the AGM, or at any later date.
