Current Vacancies

Can you spare some time to help support FYFC? We desperately need to fill these roles, otherwise the Club's future is in jeopardy.

The information below is a guide to give you a feel for where we need help. On some occasions, more time is needed and sometimes less . . . and if you would like to give even more time that's OK too!

The Club is constantly evolving and moving forward but it needs fresh ideas and approaches. Just because something has been done a certain way in the past, it doesn't mean that's the best or only way.  You might have ideas yourself of what you'd like to see done or how you think we can improve what we are already doing. Remember, everyone volunteers their time; none of us are paid experts and all help is gratefully received. 

None of these roles take up that much time each week and many hands make light work. (Too many cooks do not spoil the broth in our case!). Please consider if you can give up a few hours each month and get in touch with us at contact@fyfc.org.uk or pop in the Clubhouse one Saturday morning.
