Secretary - Johnny Gold

Johnny is our secretary, organizing the meetings, functions, software etc.

Editorial Team

  

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.
