What we do

The committee exists to support the members in pursuing their chosen activities and goals. We handle money and make operational decisions so that things run smoothly and the members get a good experience.

We meet every six weeks. Any member of Woodhouse can come to committee meetings. The dates of forthcoming meetings are listed in the diary.

Expenses claim form

If you need to claim expenses that have been incurred on behalf of the group, please complete a claim form and submit the costs to whoever authorised the expense (normally the treasurer or director of your production). Receipts, where available, need to be attached to the form.
