Help make our community a better place for all!

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Oxford Road Timebank

Do you love West Reading?

Do you want to help make your community better?

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 Oxford Road Timebank achieves its aims.

Oxford Road Timebank 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, Art exhibitions, Shared interest groups and Fitness classes.

The duties of a committee member will include:

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

We welcome anyone who is committed to seeing the Timebank 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 are also essential.
