Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for West Reading Together

Trustee members needed for West Reading Together including a co-Chair / Chair.

West Reading Together (formerly the Oxford Road Timebank) is looking for new committee members to help shape our future. We need enthusiastic people to join our friendly committee and help ensure West Reading Together achieves its aims.

West Reading Together is a local community organisation that aims to bring people together and make the West Reading community stronger. Our activities are led by participants, supported by us. Some of our planned activities include helping local residents to organise community events such as Play Streets, Street parties, West Reading Window Wanderland, and other activities that the community would like to see take place.

The duties of a committee member will include:

  • Attending meetings of the committee (approximately 4 per year) plus AGM
  • Helping represent West Reading Together at some community events in West Reading.
  • Contributing to the strategic direction of the organisation.

We welcome anyone who is committed to seeing our organisation flourish and is able to dedicate the time and energy to make that happen. The ability to work collaboratively as part of a group whilst maintaining independence of mind and good judgement is also essential.

We can be flexible with committee meeting times and venue and understand that parents may need to bring their children sometimes.
