Could YOU "Be Involved" in September?
I think we all agree that this Centre needs to become better known within the wider community and badly needs an infusion of new, younger members. The
town-wide "Be Involved" event in mid September gives us a marvellous opportunity to do just that. Its main objective is to encourage local residents to find
out what goes on in our town and to get involved in more of its activities - social, physical and educational.
We should be justly proud of what is available here, but new blood, energy and enthusiasm are needed if our Centre is to thrive and offer even more to
residents of all ages.
As part of our contribution to the event we are planning to have an information gazebo on the Recreation Ground on Saturday 16th September. We will need
folks to set this up and a rota of volunteers to staff it during the day.
Throughout the following week (18th to 22nd September) we are aiming to offer "Open House" to anyone wishing to visit the Centre. This would involve
information boards, guided tours of our facilities and a free cuppa when the cafe is open. For this we will need a rota of Welcomers throughout the week
(am/pm/and eves) to augment existing reception/caretaking staff. If your group meets at a certain time that week you might like to find such a volunteer
for us. We have no idea how many folks may drop in, and some periods could be very quiet, but I think we need to have an extra person on hand.
Could YOU offer to help in any capacity? If so please contact me on 01425 618925 (or at firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
Our static display boards will need up-to-date A4 posters from as many groups as possible. Could all group leaders please make sure that I have something
publicizing your group as soon as possible. Please leave it in Reception for my attention.
We also have a generous supply of official, full colour "Be Involved" flyers around the Centre. If you could place any in shops or outside clubs etc.
please take some.
