Our Chair would like to reiterate the appeal in my Message in the Newsletter for your help in diversifying the membership of the Churchill Hall Association committee. We need to be more representative of those who have lived at Churchill, and we need people with ideas as to how we can better engage with younger alumni online and at events. It is not a requirement to attend committee meetings, and good ideas would be very welcome.
