Club Structure

For many years the MPSC operated successfully as a members club but in a climate where there is a growing tendency towards litigation, the decision was taken to become a company limited by guarantee. By doing so we reduce the liability of the members and the committee to a maximum of £1.

All that changed was the framework in which we operated – we are still a members club which operates wholly for the benefit of those members and their guests.

The Executive Committee is made up of 8 directors who are responsible for deciding future strategy and for making the important decisions. The day to day running is undertaken by a few part time professional staff and a team of volunteers. If you are able to offer help, then please do get in touch on our club line 07920-799270. If you have any questions or queries regarding the Club/Committee or would like to assist in any way, contact the clubline on 07920-799270 or email, or write to MPSC, PO Box 308, Brockenhurst, SO42 7XR
