Following Carla Barnes' decision to move to pastures new after a very successful time as the Community Centre Bookings Co-ordinator, we have appointed Shirley Francis to the new post of Office Administrator.
As well as centre bookings and other office duties, Shirley will also provide some administrative support to the Circuit.
Asked to give a bit of background about herself, Shirley wrote, "I joined the Aylesbury Methodist Church as Office Administrator on 5th June, a role that I am really enjoying, particularly as it allows me to meet members of the diverse community who use the Centre, as well as communicating with them. I spent most of my working career in local government in Aylesbury. I enjoy assisting in fund raising activities for Action for Children, the Florence Nightingale Hospice and Royal Star & Garter Homes for retired servicemen. My hobbies include reading, playing the saxophone and allotment gardening and other voluntary community related work".
So welcome Shirley! We wish you a very long and happy stay with us.
