Red House manager
Mandy has been the manager for over twenty years. She says “I thoroughly enjoy my role, helping the trustees to keep this wonderful venue going and to provide a wide range of activities to help and support the community and village life”.
Whilst her employment as manager is a daily role for two hours (9am – 11am), Mandy works tirelessly for many hours every day supporting not just the Red House but the elderly and vulnerable in the community.
In normal times, she helps organise fundraisers not just to support the Red house but to support disadvantaged people from all sections of the community, raising many thousands of pounds
In the first lockdown Mandy working alongside the trustees persuaded the parish council to loan the parish flyer to the trustees and for 12 weeks, stocked the flyer as a mobile shop carrying fresh and dried provisions to those who were shielding. She also transported the elderly to the surgery for appointments. In her “spare” time Mandy is Chair of the Melville club, lunch club for the elderly and every week provides hot meals, for home delivery, for all members.
