Henley Town Football & Social Club urgently needs more local volunteers to come forward to help. The Club is holding its Annual General Meeting in the Club house in Mill Lane, Henley-on-Thames on Sunday 1st June starting at 10-45 am so why not pop down and explore the excellent facilities and then maybe you would like to join as social member. Local groups and clubs are welcome to use the clubhouse as their regular meeting place for a small annual membership fee.
The Club are urgently looking for new committee members and it would be helpful if a person with a financial background would come forward as Treasurer. The Red Kites are also looking for a match reporter which may suit a young person who has aspirations to become a sports journalist.
New blood must be attracted because most of the current committee are long standing members and three of them have put in over 100 years voluntary service between them to the club. There is concern where the next generation of club officials and volunteers are going to come from because nowadays once player stops playing they don’t seem to want to put anything back into the game like they used to. So Oxfordshire’s oldest football club, formed in 1871, faces big challenges but we hope local people will come forward to continue its long history.
The club have plenty of jobs for volunteers such as helping on match days, serving at the Bar, help preparing the pitch, cutting the grass and many other jobs. If you have a few hours a week to help at your local football club, you could make a big difference. Anyone interested please contact Kim Chapman on 07515892909 or pop in to have a chat with him at 210 Reading Road, Henley-on-Thames. If you are interested we can find you a something to do.
