Catering Manager (chief tea maker)
Volunteers please - Kate Gardner has decided to stand down as Catering Manager (chief tea maker), a post she has held since Bramhall U3A was established in 2010. The task is not hugely time consuming and only really involves organising a small team of volunteers during each monthly meeting.Duties will include arranging for a team of 3/4 people to assist at each meeting. Purchasing tea, coffee, milk and biscuits. After the speaker has finished his/her presentation the Catering Manager and her team leave the hall and prepare for action. The team then tidy up the kitchen area afterwards If you feel you could help out with this role then please contact Alistair Gardner 439.1582 or email: communications@bramhallu3a.org.uk
