Volunteer with the BLV community newspaper
The BLV is run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for more help.
We need volunteers to help with all sorts of things from advertising to delivery, to taking photos and writing articles.
Whatever your age or interests, we'd love to hear from you!
Our current team of fab volunteers are a friendly bunch with a variety of knowledge, experience and skills.
Come on and join us!!!
The Ben Ledi View Team
Convenor - Sue King
Following Alex Mitchell's recent departure from the role of Covenor, it has been agreed that willing volunteers will step into the post for a period of 3 months at a time. The convenor's shoes are currently being worn by Sue King who is sure to keep us all in order and pointing in the same direction.
Secretary - Johnny Gold
Johnny is our secretary, organizing the meetings, functions, software etc.
Advertising - Isla Routledge
Keith Wilson, Sue King, Phil Lee, John Nelson, Mary Buckland, Gill Corden, Alex Mitchell
This group collates all the articles that come in from individuals and organizations in Callander then manages to assemble them into some kind of order for publication.
One person takes the lead on pulling it all together and making it fit…and somehow it works!
Two other important team members are Hilary Gunkel, our proof reader and compiler of the What’s On pages, and Alexandra Russell who picks up the hand delivered articles from our collection box at the local library.
Writers and Photographers
We also have correspondents who write a column for each issue (e.g. the book club review and one-off events).
We are always interested in anyone who has new ideas for columns and articles, in particular humorous articles. We offer a £25 voucher for anyone under 18 who sends in an article we publish.
Milan Cech looks after our subscribers list. He sends out letters when subscriptions are due for renewal and each month posts put about 50 copies.
He also emails copies out to advertisers and anyone who asks to be added to the list.

Gael Provan looks after our website as well as our facebook and twitter accounts. Find us online at www.facebook.com/BenLediView and www.twitter.com/@TheBenLediView
