MARGARET MATTINGLEY – CHAIR PERSON
My volunteering goes back to 1979 to 1982, when my father was organising ways of raising money. I volunteered to do flower demonstrations for community groups and the money raised went into the funds pot. When Dad gave up at the Centre in 2000, I joined the management as a team member to continue to help running the Centre, and from doing this I then became chair of the management, a post I hold today.
JEAN REDFORD – TRUSTEE & TREASURER
Jean joined the Maurice Jagger Centre as Treasurer in 2004 she is also a Trustee.
The reason why she became involved was due to a group she belonged to ” Calder Quilters” using the Centre to hold their monthly meetings as she felt she needed to support such a good cause.
It is one of the nicest venues I have come across, everyone is friendly and cheerful and the premises are modern and welcoming I would recommend it to anyone who needs a Central place to hold their meetings.
DOREEN LLOYD – TRUSTEE & SHOP MANAGER
I started at the centre on a one off to help at the Autumn Fair on a stall and 20 years later I am still here. I have done varied jobs and enjoyed every moment. Everybody is friendly and good company. I am now shop manager and have joined the board of Trustees.
MICHELE WOOD – TRUSTEE & LUNCH CLUB MANAGER
DAVID GREENWOOD – TRUSTEE & ADMIN SUPPORT
In 2019 I decided I wanted to give something back to the community so I joined the Maurice Jagger Centre as a volunteer.
I now work two days a week in the office as Volunteer Admin Support under the guidance of Alison. The work is very enjoyable and varied, I keep updated records of Luncheon Club members, update the centre website and sell on ebay any valuable items that come into our shop. In February I joined the board of trustee.
I especially enjoy meeting the Luncheon Club members they are a great mix of people and sometimes very entertaining. I hope I am contributing to the centres ethos for the better of the members.
RENEE WEBSTER TRUSTEE & SHOP MANAGER SUPPORT
I joined the Maurice Jagger Centre team in 2013 initially as a volunteer organising books and brick-a-brac also greetings cards.
I thoroughly enjoy helping out and getting involved at the centre and interacting with the other team members and the people that attend the centre and in February was appointed onto the board of Trustees.
ALISON STEVENS – PART TIME SENIOR ADMINISTRATION MANAGER
I joined as a volunteer in January 2016 updating the website and waitressing at the Luncheon Clubs and helping out at other events like the Autumn Fair. I later also took on a part time role working a couple of mornings per week doing the Centre’s admin which I thoroughly enjoy. I meet and work with lots of lovely people and really enjoy my time there.
I want to make a difference by supporting the Trustees in maintaining the building to a high standard for everyone to enjoy.
TRACEY POSKITT – PART TIME ADMINISTRATOR
SUSAN MITCHELL – PART TIME COOK
CHRIS PETERS – PART TIME CARETAKER
After leaving my job as an upholsterer and vehicle builder in 2013, I was offered the position as caretaker at the MJC. The job is varied and I get to meet some interesting people.
We could not manage to run the Centre without our dedicated volunteers……
