Text Box: Society Officer Vacancies






         THE COMPANY
























The NGRS has a number of vacancies for people willing to help with the running and development of the Society.  

The duties are not greatly time-consuming and enthusiasm is more important than experience – help will always be

available as you get to grips with the detail.   Attending two committee meetings a year, one on the day of the AGM in May

and the other in October is expected. 


Following the resignation of the Treasurer, Robert Watson has temporarily taken on these duties, however, we require a volunteer to permanently take up the duties of Treasurer.


Additionally, the post of sales Officer has become vacant and is being temporarily covered by Steve Barber, a volunteer is required to take up these duties on a permanent basis.


If you can help, we would be delighted – please get in touch with the Secretary, Steve Barber (246 Hillbury Road, Warlingham, Surrey, CR6 9TP) or send an email to: secretary@ngrs.org. If you have any queries or require further information please contact the Secretary



The Treasurer is responsible for managing all aspects of society finances, managing bank accounts and electronic payments and the preparation of estimates and budgets as well as paying the Society’s creditors. A background in accountancy or bookkeeping is preferred.


Sales Officer

The Sales Officer is responsible for sales external to the Society and new member induction packs, back numbers and accessories (binders, coffee mugs etc.). Applicant must have some suitable storage space, Internet and email access,

and a liking for packing parcels (although this could be overlooked).


Publicity / Exhibitions Officer

We would like to recruit a Publicity Officer to progress the Society’s image and presence.   Ideally you would be involved in running and manning our stand at the Statfold open days, and this might be extended to other appropriate venues.  Beyond that, we have no fixed ideas as to how the task might be approached, although the use of social media and PR would be beneficial.  Some liaison with the general railway press will also be required, as will an ability to write persuasively.     


The Society would be happy to have many members acting as Publicity Assistants, undertaking this role on a local level or with an individual Railway



The Directors are always pleased to be offered assistance with administering the Society. It should be noted that several of the Directors and Society Officers are fulfilling more than one role and it would be prudent to reduce their commitments.


Assistance in organising visits and AGMs etc. is also gratefully accepted and is usually required on a geographic basis.


If you believe you are able to help in any of the forgoing areas or you are prepared to give general assistance  including assisting in cataloguing  our library (books, images, moving images/ other) please do not hesitate to contact the Secretary

 or other Director or Society Officer for further information.
