Settle Area Swimming Pool is looking for a number of new trustees.

Several of the group who saw through the major transformation of the pool in recent years have already stepped down and a number of others, including Colin Coleman the current chair, are due to do so at the annual meeting in July, which will mark the 50th anniversary of start of work on construction of the  building in 1974.

The main requirement for all trustees is a commitment to the continuing success of the pool as a resource for the whole community.

In addition each trustee is expected to bring a degree of experience and expertise that helps ensure the effective operation of the organisation.

The trustees are all volunteers and as such not paid, though where necessary they can claim out of pocket expenses.

At present the full board of trustees meets one evening a month at the pool, but much of the work is done through four groups. These deal with finance, facilities, people and publicity. Each group meets on a monthly basis with individuals undertaking various tasks between meetings.

Because the pool is a charitable incorporated organisation, trustees have certain important responsibilities but are not legally responsible for instance for any debts.

New trustees will be subject to election at the annual meeting  on  July 18 , as will those who have completed their three year term of office but wish to stay on.

If you are interested in becoming a trustee or just want to have a chat, without obligation get in touch the Ian Orton, the secretary through or call him on 07841 577 991.
