Chair: Richard West
I first got involved in POP in the year 2000 and have helped out where I can as a volunteer over the years. From bar construction for the BIG weekend, working on the BBQs, and supporting the mobile bars. I joined the committee in 2018 and was appointed Chair in 2022.
POP is all about friendship, family, community and having fun. The 2022 BIG weekend was the biggest yet. I am incredibly grateful to Carlton, Yorkie, Carolyne, Andy, Simon, Christine and Lloyd and all the previous POP committee that have left an amazing legacy for the 2023/4 team to continue. We have 7 new committee members and 5 also staying on, which gives is a great blend of experience and new comers!
I’ve lived in Potton most of my life, I am married to Sarah (also Potton-er for life!) and daughters Imogen and Kiera. I enjoy gym, running, dog walks, cycling and quality family time.
Treasurer: Helen Leach
I joined the POP Committee as Secretary in November 2016, and am now Treasurer.
Having lived in Potton with my husband, son and daughter for the last 14 years I can’t think of anywhere nicer to be. The community spirit is what makes it stand out and POP and the Big Weekend are a big part of that.
It’s been a long while coming but the next Big Weekend is just around the corner and I can’t wait!
Vice Chair: Samantha
I moved to Potton with my husband on the Bank Holiday weekend of 2008. There was a lot of fuss
and excitement in town, guess what Party on Potton was in full swing! I thought it was amazing, I brought tickets, laughed, drank and danced. What a welcome!
Since 2008 a few things have changed I’ve had two children, changed my career becoming a primary school teacher and in 2022 I joined the Party On Potton committee.
For me Party on Potton is so many fabulous things, great atmosphere, laughs, fun, dancing and drinking! But most importantly its Potton’s USP a fantastic community, we support each other, we look out for each other and we have the best fun.
Come and see what its all about.
