Our Fruit and Veg Shop continues to bring in lots of new faces, and on any sunny days we are encouraging local people to join our volunteers for a chat about our services and a free cup of tea at our “Community Corner” just outside the shop. Its a way of creating more awareness of all the services we run, and giving the volunteers a greater role in helping to signpost local customers.
We held our AGM this month, and were delighted to have over 30 people attend, including clients, volunteers and workers from partnership organisations. Before the actual meeting we ran a cooking taster session that helped put together the buffet we all enjoyed after the AGM. We also ran a Walking Group taster session, that was just wonderful in the gorgeous weather.
As well as nominating the new Board for the coming year, the AGM marked the launch of our new Awareness Film, that gives a great visual summary of all the valuable work that we do, and how people can access these services. It can be viewed here. Please feel free to share and pass to others!
