With no paid members of staff, we rely on our volunteers and particularly Volunteer Co-ordinator Pauline to keep everyone happy and informed and get everyone in the right place at the right time!
Pauline says: The 22/23 year has seen the number of volunteers remain approximately the same. New people joining, but others retiring, withdrawing with health or family issues, or relocating.
Recruitment by posters or flyers has had minimal effect, flagging up opportunities online has been more
successful. Historically, personal recommendation has been the most fruitful way for new people to become involved but we are now endeavouring to recruit from wider areas by involvement in dedicated organisations.
Our trustee board has ended the year with a group of enthusiastic committed individuals working together both operationally and to improve the financial security and artistic viability of Brixham Theatre. Our management team has ensured improvements in the efficiency and effectiveness of our organisation.
Our Duty Manager team has been expanded by both new people and existing members of the team coming forward. Our events stewards team has a core of experienced individuals with some new members rapidly clocking up event hours.
Our volunteer tech team has continued to devote many hours to the benefit of local community groups.
Our box office team represent the face of the Theatre during the daytime.
Volunteer events are the ideal chance for everyone to meet up and have included a Curry Night, Coffee and Cake, Afternoon Cream and Cheese Teas and of course the annual summer garden party.
