Campaign Co-ordinator and Committee Members

Wales in Bloom is looking to recruit a new Campaign Co-ordinator to undertake the administration work involved in the running of the organisation.  The ideal candidate should be able to use the full Microsoft Office suite ie Word, Excel, PowerPoint and email, in addition to updating the website.  There is a nominal honorarium paid for this post. 

Additionally we are looking to recruit Committee Members.  There are typically 4 Committee Meetings a year held in central Wales.  If you require any further information please contact the Chairman.

Proposed new RHS Garden Bridgewater

The RHS have asked me to pass on the email below regarding support for their proposed new RHS Garden on the outskirts of Salford whilst more accessible from North Wales, members in the South could well be interested.
