Meet the Team


We’re run by a team of dedicated volunteers from the local community, our user groups and young professionals. Why not join in?


Current Management Team

We currently have seven team members and are on the lookout for more. We have a real mix of locals, centre users and young professionals. Could you be our next member?

Clair Chew

Acting Chair

Clair’s excellent numeracy skills help keep the management committee on track and with our planning for the future..

Nicada Drayton

Building Lead

Nicada’s background in facilities management and chartered surveying makes her the ideal lead in looking after our Grade II listed building.

Jay Maxwell

centre user

Jay runs weekly fencing classes at the centre and helps us stay focused on the end user.

Michael McGrath

Mawbey Rep

Michael is extremely active in the local community, and currently heads up the Mawbey Brough TRA team. He’s a can do person, and turns his hand to just about anything at Wheatsheaf. And he’s a dab hand at calling the bingo numbers at the Wednesday morning pensioners group!

Natalie Thompson

Mawbey Rep

Natalie is also extremely active locally, and serves on a number of committees. She’s a local mum and manager of a building company.

Oscar Tang

Committee Member

Legal whiz Oscar is helping us negotiate the choppy waters of charity registration. .

Connie Dooknah

Wyvil Rep

Also local to the area, Connie chairs the Wyvil TRA and brings a wealth of local experience to her role here at the Wheatsheaf.

New Member

We are very keen to recruit more members to the committee, particularly locals. We’d love to have a representative of Heman’s Estate. If you’d like to find out more, please email us on
