Volunteers, Committee and Trustees

The Centre is a registered charity. It is run by a committee made up of trustees and co-opted members. Volunteers run the day to day activities of the centre.

If you are interested into becoming a trustee of The Centre of Pendeen, please get in touch.

If you’d like to join our team of volunteers, please contact us. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Melanie Richards, will discuss volunteering opportunities with you, and arrange any appropriate training. We always need willing helpers to staff the reception desk, serve refreshments and help at events.

We hold monthly meetings to discuss our finances, events and current issues. These meetings are closed to the public but a comments book is available for members of the public. Our Annual General Meeting, when the new chair and the new committee are elected, is held in March, and is open to the public.

The current trustees are:

Sue James (Joint Chair)

John Aldred (Joint Chair)

Jeremy Spanton (Treasurer)

Rachel Ewer

Carolyn Shipton

Jane Haslem (Sustainable Pendeen and Minutes)

Melanie Richards (Volunteer Co-ordinator)

Our mission statement is: “To promote, for the benefit of the inhabitants of Pendeen and surrounding area, the provision of facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation of individuals who have need of such facilities by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disablement, financial hardship or social and economic circumstances or for the public at large in the interests of their social welfare.”
