Jim Nicol – Volunteer Youth Worker & Steering Group Member
Hi. I’m Jim. I teach.
I love camping, tomatoes and Marvin the Martian. I went to the same school as Richard Hammond. I think I know what the meaning of life is.
Favourite Joke (a Tim Vine special…): “I’ve just come back from a once in a lifetime holiday. I tell you what, never again…”
Noel Mobberley – Member of Steering Group
I’m a keen gardener and also have an allotment. I like walking, particularly along the coast and we use our campervan to visit good walking places in the UK and Europe. This year we spent Easter in Amsterdam in our camper which we call ‘Dora’.
Mel Curnuck – Chairman of Steering Group
I was first ask to serve on the youth project steering group (management committee) in 2001 as a representative of Harvington Baptist Church and have served as the projects secretary.
I am now the projects chairman. In this role I am keen to see the project develop to meet the changing needs of the young people of Harvington and to build bridges between the project and the community. Please contact me should you wish to discuss any aspect of the projects works with me.
