The Thompson House Committee’s Annual General Meeting is coming up in Room 1 at 2pm on Wednesday the 28th of April this year. We wish to invite any and all of our wonderful users to meet the committee and seriously consider volunteering to join us.

Being a member requires no more than 30 minutes of your time for 11 meetings a year from January to November on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 2pm. The input and constructive suggestions we receive are absolutely invaluable, and almost everyone on the committee also makes use of the House for their own purposes.

We have ambitious plans for this year and the next, so now would be a good time to make your opinion known before it’s too late. Snacks and drinks will be available afterwards, and we sincerely hope you will consider joining our ranks to ensure the House remains the pride and joy of our community.

If you haven't already, please follow us on Facebook for further updates and news.

These have all been well supported by the community.
