The Fieldgate Centre is owned by Basingstoke and Deane Council but is run by a committee of dedicated volunteers who put their time into creating a fun and enjoyable space for everyone to enjoy.

The committee, called the Kingsclere Community Association (KCA), is elected annually at the AGM.

OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR – CHARLOTTE WILLIAMS

Charlotte works in the office, managing the day to day running of the Centre, the Committee and volunteers.  Charlotte is your first point of call for booking enquiries and unusual requests.

MARKETING & EVENTS – SUE GROVE-WHITE

After running the office for a few years, Sue has placed it in Charlotte’s capable hands.  Using her previous experience in Marketing and PR Sue is now responsible for organising community events and promoting KCA’s activities.

TRUSTEE – LESLEY FAREY

Lesley has been involved with KCA for many years.  She is a guiding force and makes an essential contribution to the organisation. 

CHAIRMAN – ANDY BATES

On top of the usual Chairman responsibilities Andy can often be found mucking in and helping get practical things done.  Known for taking on tasks as varied as unblocking a toilet and acting in the annual panto, it’s fair to say the Fieldgate Centre keeps him on his toes!

VICE CHAIRMAN – CHINNER

Chinner is the second in line here at the Fieldgate.  Found most days at the Fieldgate, some say it’s a part of him as much as he’s a part of it.

TREASURER – IAN BOWES

Ian is the money man at the Fieldgate table.  A former commercial director, Ian looks after the various business aspects of KCA: making sure the books balance; managing our income and costs; applying for and managing our grant income and managing the various improvement projects at the centre.  All essential tasks when it comes to ensuring that the Centre continues to be a great place for everyone to enjoy, tomorrow as well as today.

SECRETARY – KAREN COLOMBO

Karen started volunteering at the Fieldgate and before she knew it she had the heady responsibilities of taking minutes at committee meetings and putting up CCTV cameras in her spare time.
