Volunteering

Volunteer NOW!

Have you thought about volunteering to help others within Austrey Village? Volunteers are important and they make a real difference to the lives of other people, our community and the environment.

What are we looking for ?
 

We are looking to build a resource bank of people who can be called when there is a specific project to be carried out, or for ongoing help around the village.  Examples of how you might help could include (but are not limited to):

  • Ongoing village maintenance - eg: painting the railings at the children’s play area at Austrey Playing Fields or painting the bus shelter

  • Newsletter – submitting articles or helping with deliveries

  • Village Planters - donations of annual flowering plants, planting up, watering

  • Emergency contacts – do you have skills that could be of help in a major emergency ? (flood, winter freeze etc).  This could be plumbing services, help delivering goods to the elderly or disabled etc.

  • Volunteer drivers needed - Have you got a car? Do you want to do something to help your community? Can you spare a few hours a week?  Beeline pays tax free mileage expenses and insurance cover. To find out more about being a volunteer please call 01827 717074 or visit www.beelinect.org.uk
     

Please email parishcouncil@austrey.co.uk to register your interest in helping.

Don’t be disappointed if we don’t contact you, as we may not need your skills at the time of your registration – be assured however that your willingness to help out is very much appreciated.
