Readers Executive Board Meetings

The Latest meeting of the Reader's Executive Board was held in January 2017 in Church House.  This was the first Reader's exec. meeting with our new Warden of Reader's Rt. Revd. Mark Tanner, Bishop of Berwick.  There are new initiatives and events coming very soon including a day conference and our AGM meeting in Berwick on Saturday 8th April 2017.  Please check out our News and Events / Coming soon!!! page.

The Annual General Meeting of the Newcastle Readers Board was held on Saturday 3 October 2015 just prior to the licensing of the new Readers. 

Canon Sue Hart is our Reader Recruitment and Selection Coordinator.  We thanked Sue for her continuing dedication and hard work in this role.  Hilary Elder is also continuing in her role as Reader Secretary.  Hilary was given a vote of thanks for her continued efforts in this time demanding role.  Sue remains on the Executive Committee in her new role as Recruitment Co-ordinator.

When the Readers Board met earlier in the year Simon Embleton was voted onto the committee as Social media Editor working alongside Val Cowan in updating our Website, Twitter account and Facebook.  Simon also joined the Reader recruitment and selection team.  Nicola Denyer who was appointed to represent Readers in Training stood down as she had decided to take some time off from her studies.  Gloria Cadman stepped down as editor of the Newcastle Reader magazine and Gloria was thanked for her tremendous work on this excellent magazine over the years.  Katherine Govier, Reader from the Cathedral, has kindly agreed to take on this responsibilty and in doing so has also joined the Readers Board. 

Hilary Elder had an interesting presentation to show the Readers board on the stats rec'd from previous Reader Returns....Please watch this space for any changes or developments in this area.
