VOLUNTEER WITH US!

Anyone interested in becoming more involved in the NMSG group is more than welcome. The many roles all take time and as a mum there are often not many hours free! So the more people on the Committee, the more there are to share the roles and hours required.

 

The NMSG is run completely by volunteers and all roles are unpaid. What we can’t provide financially we aim to make up for in other ways. With a very social group of mums on the committee there is always someone available for a coffee and coffee catch ups and dinners are a regular occurrence.

If you would like to apply for a position, please email: cochairsnmsg@gmail.com with a brief introduction about yourself. Feel free to also email the same address if you have any questions about the role.
