Treasurer Wanted for Butterfly Park

Howard has been Treasurer of New Ferry Butterfly Park for over 20 years and is retiring next year. We need someone to take over from him and the new person can shadow him to learn the ropes.

What does the Treasurer do?

Accurate accounts need to be kept of donations made at the Butterfly Park and any purchases made. The busiest day is the Open Day in May when petty cash is needed and then money taken has to be counted and banked. The Treasurer checks bank statements every month and may be asked to supply information for grant applications. The accounts must be prepared annually for approval by an auditor and a verbal report is given at the AGM.

How long might this take?

Around an hour a week in the summer when the Butterfly Park is open. Half a day after Open Day to count cash, pay it into the bank and update records. A few hours are needed to complete the annual accounts.

If you have the skills for this role or want to learn them Howard will run through it all with you.

Any offers of help or questions can be emailed to and they will be passed on to Howard.
