Our Committee are a group of elected volunteers who help guide the society and oversee its endeavours. Committee members select new productions and plan ahead to ensure there’s the right balance of entertainment to suit all our members. The Committee serves the members, manages membership and makes decisions on general expenditure. They’re a dedicated bunch who donate a considerable amount of time and effort to ensure everything runs just about smoothly.
