Volunteering

As a volunteer-based group, we depend upon the kind support and involvement of others within the community to help us run, develop, and deliver all our various projects and events.

Our friendly, mixed bunch of volunteers help out with a whole range of projects and anyone is welcome to join in.

In normal circumstances we can offer a range of volunteer opportunities but, due to current restrictions, these are limited right now:

What Difference Can I Make as an Individual?

We are often asked, what difference one person can make, and the answer is that collectively we can move mountains with enough people all working towards the same goal.

Here are some ideas of what you can do to help:

Many of the videos from the Climate Assembly will give you ideas about what we can all do as individuals to help.

These two in particular should be helpful:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

We were really busy yesterday at our Repair Cafe. As ever, some challenges, some things that were impossible to repair, and some that were an absolute joy and brought tears to our eyes (see crochet blanket photo & related story). 

Huge thanks to our wonderful team who work so well together and turn up every month, not quite knowing what they are going to be asked to deal with!
 
Welcome to the team Alex Rose who is working on a sustainability project as part of his Masters Degree in Product Design at Kingston University. We hope to work with Alex to come up with some useful research, based on the types of repairs we have done at the Repair Cafe, what products we find are frequently not able to be repaired and what ones have a high repair success rate.

I am looking fwd to visiting The Repair cafe for the first time next year. It looks brilliant such fabulous volunteers!

How lovely. On day will get down there x

Lovely to see things up and running again, when's the next one? Xx

It’s such a great asset to the town

.... when you have a conversation in the car on the way back from the community allotment about needing a load of woodchip for the muddy pathways and the next thing you know, its being tipped onto your driveway (after spotting someone chipping a tree at the end of the road)! 

Thanks to Rita for helping Al to bag it and to Tracey and Marie for making a great start to spreading it where its needed most.

Whatever would we do without our very willing band of volunteers.
