June reflections from our male co-chair

Hi there – I really enjoyed being part of the recent training day. We have always attracted good people for training days but this time it really helped that there was a much bigger and diverse group. There were also more WGWG members there to assist Bill and his team make the day the success I think it was.

Now we have a large new intake, it’s up to all of us to be there to do duties with trainees. We used to have a system of assigning new trainees to at least one Helpliner who would keep in touch with them and help in the process of becoming part of the WGWG group – I think this may be a good time to get this reinstated. Think about it for the next meeting.

We are also looking at the best way to introduce some additional training after trainees have had some experience doing shared duties – and include in this process people who are full members of the WGWG. We have money to advertise particularly our youth groups, and we are currently looking at re-vamping our brochures, business cards, posters and website. If you want to help with designing stuff contact Ted or George.

Next meeting we are discussing the update to the WGWG Rules, and want to hear your views on whether the re-drafted rules properly reflect how we all want to see the group operate. Chris
