Members of the MCG Executive Committee
Committee meetings usually take place on the first Wednesday of most months.
Some Committee members and other members of MCG also act as "collectors". The collectors deliver the MCG newsletters and collect the annual subscriptions from members who choose to pay cash.
Jo Lawrance - Chairman
Jo was elected as Chairman of MCG at the 2021 Annual General Meeting of the Group. Jo grew up in East Sussex and first lived in Maresfield during the 90s when her two boys attended a local school. She moved back to the village in February 2020, just in advance of the national lockdown. Obliged to work from home, Jo seized the opportunity to go for long daily walks, rediscovering the beautiful footpaths and rich history of Maresfield. This motivated her into joining the MCG and, subsequently, the Footpaths Group. Jo works full time as a civil servant, specialising in strategic communications and business management. She's passionate about conservation, in particular the environment, culture and our heritage.
John Smith - Treasurer
John Smith is our Treasurer and keeps an accurate record of all the MCG's income and expenditure. He has lived in the village for four and a half years. He is leader of the Village Footpaths group and works hard to maintain those around Maresfield Parish. He participates in any maintenance requirements within the village.
Rob has lived in Maresfield for over 3 years. You will have seen him each December on scaffolding working on the Village Christmas tree.
