I hope my message finds you all well and that you have had a really enjoyable summer.
I have been asked about the next chit chat cafe and wondered how we all felt about organising a festive one in December?
To that end, I have established that Newborough Village Hall is free on 28 September 2017 @ 6.30.pm for the community group members to meet and start organising this event.
Could I please ask that if anyone knows dates of any other events being held in the village in December, that you bring this information to the meeting so we can ensure there is no clash with the proposed chit chat café event?
The sooner a date can be established for the chit chat event in December 2017 the sooner we can pass the details on for inclusion in the local village magazine, which is due for delivery to all properties in Newborough and Borough Fen in December!.
In addition, I have asked PCVS (Peterborough Community Voluntary Services) to meet with our community group so we can discuss the group, its progression, etc..
Again, I have checked Newborough Village Hall and Jan’s availability and have organised this to take place on 12 October 2017 @ 6.00.pm.
I would therefore appreciate you accepting or declining this invite at your earliest opportunity.
Should you no longer wish to receive e-mails from the Voluntary Community Group, please advise by return of e-mail and your details will be removed from the mailing list.
Thank you for your time and please share this information with your group or other individuals who wish to join the voluntary group.
Newborough & Borough Fen - Community Support Group
Supporting & Strengthening our Local Community
Newborough and Borough Fen Parish Council have been working with our Local Authority in partnership with Peterborough Council for Voluntary Service's Wellbeing Service and other Voluntary organisations to see how we can best support and create a more confident, proactive and thriving community.
The Newborough and Borough Fen - Community Support Group has now formed. Whilst our group is new, our aspiration is a strong commitment in giving something back to our community and supporting individuals and their wellbeing in our local neighbourhood who may be vulnerable, feel socially isolated and/or experiencing loneliness of any age.
Working together, we can offer our help, provide ideas of the various organisations/clubs within the community, access to networks and support services or simply be neighbourly.
If you have a passion to be involved and are willing to:-
make a difference
Befriend individuals in our local community
refer individuals to voluntary support services
Attend group meetings
If you would like more information on our proposals we are keen to hear from you, so please get in touch.
