Technical Assistant.


I have been involved with the Centre since 1972 when I started organising the PA system for the annual fêtes and fayres.

My role now is that of technical assistant doing electric repairs, installations and IT work (including trouble shooting problems with computers, installing software, etc.)

Last year I reported that I was working on an energy conservation programme looking at ways of saving electricity and oil throughout the Centre. As a result of this, two projects during this year have been the installation of a new
heating system and controls and placing time clocks on electrical equipment. Both projects aimed at energy conservation and cost savings. Another project I have been involved in has been the installation of new televisions in classes 2 and 3.
