Alisdair Semple

New Chair of Trustees for VARB

Gill Williamson has recently stood down as Chair of Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead.  Gill has served as the Chair for 5 years.  In that time the organisation has been restructured and re-branded as Voluntary Action, with a growing emphasis on supporting volunteers and volunteering.  Gill will remain on the Board of trustees until September 2018.

Alisdair Semple has been elected as the new Chair of trustees for VARB.  Alisdair has been a VARB trustee for almost 3 years.  He has a particular interest in the faith sector being an Elder with Christ Central church in Redhill.   Says Alisdair “Gill has done a fantastic job over the last few years.  I believe the voluntary, community and faith sector is increasingly vital to the well-being of our community and I am looking forward to the challenge of supporting the sector as we move forward.”

If you are involved in the voluntary, community or faith sector, either as a volunteer, employee or service user, and are interested in joining the Board of Trustees at VARB, please get in touch with Alisdair for an informal chat and to find out more.
