North East Variety Branch
Equity has a vital network of branches throughout the UK which give members a voice in the union and much more.
The North East Variety Branch hold monthly meetings (except December) on the last Tuesday of the Month from 7:30pm at Pelaw Social Club, Heworth House, Gateshead, NE10 0XQ.
Following our Annual Genreal Meeting which took place in May, we now have new officers in place.
Due to continued ill health our Chairman for many years past, Richard Sands, was unable to stand for re-election as Chairman.
Our new Branch Chairman is Steve McGuire and Steve had this to say regarding Richard.
"Richard has been a faithfull and loyal servent to the Branch for many, many years and his presence, wit and guidance will be sorely missed at our meetings. We wish Richard well and a speedy return to good health"
The new officers elected at the AGM were as follows:
Steve McGuire: Hon Chairman
Jimmy Fallon : Hon Vice Chairman
Brenda Marsh: Hon Secretary
Mike Watson: Hon Assistant Secretary
Brenda Marsh: Hon Treasurer
Steve McGuire: Public Relations Officer
There are still a number of vacancies for Comittee Members, so if you feel you would like to participate and help to run the Branch Please have a word with either Brenda or Steve, Committee Meetings take place at 7:00pm on the last Tuesday of the month before the Branch meeting commences at 7:30pm.
Our next meeting will take place on Tuesday 24th September and we look forward to seeing you there.
Election results for the new industrial committee's have been published and unfortunately Steve McGuire narrowly missed being elected to the Variety, Circus and Entertainers Committee by just 38 Votes. Still there is always next years Council election to look forward to.
