Secretary + SEDAshop
Andy has been a member of SEDA for donkey’s years and looks after SEDAshop, the place to go for oddball connectors, bulgin plugs, gaffa tape and inflatable geetars!
Andy is a very clever chap indeed, his creations via his company (Paladin Innovations) including the Casebooth concept along with loads of other different types of DJ booth are owned by folk across the UK.
What this guy doesn’t know about aluminium isn’t worth knowing!
Keith has been a SEDA member for many many years and now holds our purse strings after being elected as Treasurer in 2013. He makes sure there’s enough money in the bank to pay for stuff, all of this without having to use a calculator! Amazing!
Caroline is one of the most organised members of the SEDA committee. She looks after our membership system and makes sure it runs smoothly. There’s not much more to say really other than if you need any stats regarding our membership, she can put her finger on the numbers you need within minutes! One of her biggest niggles is chasing up Members who haven’t paid their membership fees so be warned!
Andy has been involved with the SEDA Committee for many many years, looks after our ShowNights, the treasure island table (Ahoy me ol’ chumbucket!) and is also the friendly face of SEDA with the lovely Caroline on our stand at BPM each year!
Every committee meeting Andy can be found scoffing a plate of fish and chips drinking a pint of grog out of a hornpipe. Shiver me timbers!
Webmaster + Technical
Jack has been involved in SEDA for a little while now. Jack became a member a few years ago and rapidly began helping and getting involved into SEDA and it’s running at shownights. Jack now kindly takes care of our shownight technical responsibilities and also our webmaster duties.
Health & Safety
Paul is our newly appointed health & safety representative.
He has been involved with SEDA for a few years now as a member often giving advice where needed on all things health & safety so it only made sense to give him the role!
Paul also runs his own mobile disco company – Function Entertainments as well as being the ‘go-to’ cable guy via his brand Marten®……. and… he is the director of Kent PAT Testing & Electrical Supplies Ltd.
All in all a very handy man to know!
