Alv
Former Community Development & Centre Manager

It’s with real sadness that we must also let you all know that Alv will not be returning to his role as Community Development and Centre Manager for personal reasons.
We’re going to miss him and are really grateful for all his hard work, which was always done with a smile, and we wish him all the best for the future. 

We will be going out to recruit in the near future, but in the meantime, the others in our office team will be happy to help. 

 

 

 

Aymie
Centre Assistant

Hello, I’m Aymie! I started working as a Centre Assistant in October 2018.

I’m on either hand, email or phone most days to answer almost anything you need to know about the Centre! I’m mostly looking forward to engaging local residents with meaningful activities, entertainment and learning opportunities, and broadening the use of the building to make it accessible for all. Can’t wait to meet you!

Trustees & Honorary Officers

Kelly
Chairperson

I’ve been the Chairperson for the LGCA since December 2015 and I also currently lead the events team. I work hard to bring Lyde Green great events to bring the community together, including our annual Summer Sizzler which is held in July.

Being a part of the LGCA has given me opportunities I would never have imagined. I have gained so many more skills, increased my confidence considerably and met some amazing people along the way.

 

Bob
Vice-Chairperson

 

I’ve been part of LGCA since early 2016. I’m a trustee and am now also Vice-Chair. I lead the Community Centre team and have been involved with decisions ranging from the colour of the flooring and the kitchen layout to appointing  our new Community Development and Centre Manager.

I want Lyde Green to be a great place with a real sense of community.

 

Sue
Secretary

Having recently moved to Lyde Green and knowing how important good community spirit is, I took the opportunity to volunteer for the role of secretary.

I’ve now been the LGCA Secretary since early 2018.  I’m pleased to be part of a friendly enthusiastic and welcoming team!

 

 

Alison
Treasurer

I am the LGCA treasurer and am responsible for showing how funds have been used for the benefit of the Community. I am also coordinating our fundraising efforts.

I volunteer because I want to build an inclusive and welcoming community.

 

 

Trustees

Laura
Trustee

I volunteer because….. I heard there was cake!
And because I like to help people and am also building my family life in Lyde Green and want to make it the best it can be!

I’ve been involved since 2016. I work with the Lyde Green Partnerships group to seek resolutions to residents issues and am involved in the set up of the new Community Centre and Café.

 

Louise
Trustee

I’m a trustee and am involved in the children and young people team. I was also the Secretary from 2016-2017. I have found it to be very rewarding.

After moving to Lyde Green as a stay at home mum and not knowing anybody, I joined the LGCA to meet people and give me new skills for my CV whilst making sure Lyde Green is a great place for children to grow up.

 

 

Sadik
Trustee
Chris
Trustee

I joined the LGCA to be a part of the community and work towards building a great environment for my family to live within.

I’m a trustee and was also Comms Lead from 2016-2018. As Lyde Green has grown, so has the work required to keep our residents up to date. Communications is a vital part of this and I do love to talk…

 

 

Sally
Trustee

I am an LGCA trustee. I am also employed by the Diocese of Bristol to support the residents of Lyde Green to develop their Community and support their aims.

I am keen to help the voice of Children and Young People be heard and help foster relationships between schools and community.

 

 

Teresa
Trustee

I moved to  Emersons Green five and a half years ago to take up the post of Vicar of Mangotsfield, which then included Mangotsfield and most of Emersons Green and much of the then planned housing for Emersons Green East. It has been a privilege to have been present at the formative stage of what is now Lyde Green and also to be an early member of LGCA.

I am a trustee of LGCA and whilst helping Lyde Green to become a distinctive vibrant community I also have the benefit of knowing other parts of the wider community and work to help Lyde Green to feel a part of this larger community too.

Volunteers

Cate
Volunteer

Since early 2017, I’ve been part of our Comms team and help with social media, putting our news emails together, writing press releases, designing flyers, and more! I designed the LGCA logo and have helped with content for the website. I help out with organising some events such as the Big Spring Clean and am part of other Lyde Green community groups too.

I volunteer because I enjoy being part of the action and want to make sure Lyde Green is the place to be!

 

Mark
Volunteer

I designed and built the new LGCA website which has helped me to develop my web-building skills.

I volunteer because I enjoy learning new things and like being part of a community.
