Dorset Area Volunteer Roles Available

We are currently loking for members to take on these roles. If you are interested in the roles, would like more information or have any questions please contact Jan via .

Area Secretary -You may be aware that Dorset Area of the Ramblers does not currently have an Area Secretary and is actively recruiting a volunteer for the post. Jan Wardell has been Acting Secretary since the AGM in November 2019, but for the Area and Area Council to be fully supported, this is not an ideal situation.
It is an interesting, varied and satisfying role, and would suit someone who enjoys a bit of admin work, or following through an enquiry/directing it to the relevant volunteer, and on to a satisfactory conclusion. It could open up new avenues for you, and spark an interest you didn’t know you had!
The role involves working closely with the Area Chairman in preparing Area Council meetings, and taking the Minutes of those meetings. To apply, please follow this link link.

Jubilee Trail Co-ordinator/Administrator- As you will be aware, the Jubilee Trail. was established in 1995, by the Dorset Area of the Ramblers to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Association. Rosemary Bramah has been the main Jubilee Trail (JT) Coordinator for some years, and now feels that the time has come to hand over the baton to someone else. We in Dorset are indebted to Rosemary and her monitors and supporters who have done a tremendous job, which we will continue, but with the management taking a slightly different form. Working with the JT monitors, members of Area Council, and the Area Footpath Committee, we have produced a plan, and are now looking for a volunteer to collate the various sections, and report periodically to Area Council (There will be no requirement to attend meetings – although visitors are welcome to observe Area meetings!)
