Do you have it where you live?
From me it’s a resounding NO.
Yesterday my friend and I went to check out a Fruit n Veg collection scheme in one of the nearby villages abut 5 mins away. On arriving at the village hall we were stunned by what they had on offer.
Community Cafe 3 times a week-they even do a 3 course lunch!
Craft workshops-for free!
Film nights for children and adults.
Family History workshops.
Of course the Veg to table scheme,
and lots more.
This is all run and staffed by volunteers. When we came out after placing our orders ,and enjoying a very nice cup of tea and some hot buttered toast, we both said ‘why don’t we have things like this where we live?’
We have a Village hall and lots of adults and children who I’m sure would benefit from activity’s and services like these.
But it’s getting things started,and finding people to run them. I cant imagine people round here wanting to commit to things.Maybe I’m wrong and there are a few people wishing we could get something up and running but I cant see it.
It’s a shame,and I’ll admit I’m a bit jealous of all they’ve got going on up there. But well done to them it’s great to see people putting effort in and giving something back.
What’s it like where you live? Do you have any activity’s that run weekly,do you volunteer yourself?
