Lindum Hockey Club is seeking a new Club Secretary to help with the running of the organisation

Despite carrying out a fine job as Club Secretary so far since the AGM, Kerry Buckley-Rees is (sadly for the club) leaving the area for personal reasons and has left her role. The Club is therefore seeking a new volunteer, or volunteers as it can be carried out by a team, to fulfil the role of Secretary. This is a prestigious role within the club which comes with the full support of the rest of the committee and is a great way for club members to give something back to the running of the organisation.
