Canton Officers

Canton Officers are members who perform various administrative tasks for the group. They provide leadership and guidance to the rest of the Canton, and assist the "president", or Seneschal, of the group with decision-making and other responsibilities.

If you are someone from the public looking to find out more information about Harrowgate Heath and what we do, or you are newcomer looking to join our group, you should contact either the Chatelaine or the Seneschal to start, but any of the officers can help you.
