LCCS Committee. For the 2015-16 year, members of the committee are:
Michael Brooke (Deputy Chairman), Helen Gale (Secretary), Sonia Liggett(Treasurer), Mark Worwood (Librarian), Sue Rayner (Librarian), Caroline Hazell (Assistant Treasurer), Lucy-Ann Pickering (Assistant Secretary), Helen Lloyd, Douglas Hogg, Margaret Hurle and Sue Smith. Meetings are also attended by Dominic Neville (Chief Conductor).
The next meetings of the committee will be held at 7.30 on Wednesday 13th April and 25th May.
Members are asked to arrive a few minutes early for rehearsals and to collect their own chair from a classroom, noting where it came from so that it can be returned to the same place at the end of the session. Sue Raynor will guide the operation when needed. Many thanks for your co-operation with this – it is important not to create difficulties for teachers at the school.
