Volunteering Morning - Saturday 8th June
We will be holding another Volunteer morning from 9am to 1pm on Saturday 8th June. Tasks to be carried out will be confirmed closer to the time, but there will be something that everyone can help out with.
Don’t worry if you have never been before, there are always plenty of new people to meet, lots of tea, biscuits and fun as well as the hard work! If you would like to come down and get involved then please sign-up here.
Don’t forget, if you have spare time in the week, we also have week day volunteers helping out most days. Jobs are varied and can last from a few hours to mini-projects. All welcome, no specialist skills required. But if you do have one, let us know.
Perhaps you could help with supplies?
We are in need of consumables to help with the renovation work. There are a couple of ways to do this:
A huge thanks for your support.
At a loose end during the week?
Are you bored during the week? Had enough of daytime TV? Thought that you want to make a real difference in the world? Or simply want to hide from your partner or family? Well the answer is here!! Come and volunteer down at The Swan during the week. We need you whether you are skilled bricklayer, or carpenter, or can be a general labourer for the day. We also need people to take stuff the dump too.
Interested? Then come on down!
Please wear old clothing, gloves and secure footwear. High viz vests, hard hats, masks and the likes will be available. Before starting there will be a little light reading to do and also a safety briefing too. We will also need your signature as part of the legal stuff.
There is still plenty to do! See the recent photos here. We will be posting more as we go along.
Your time and help would be appreciated.
Tradesmen and Professionals
We are also looking for further help with the project at preferential rates (or for free, as a gift to the project). Can you help? Or do you know someone who can? We are also looking for skilled tradesmen who are able to volunteer their time during the week.
We are going to need people with a wide range of skills:
- Skilled tradesmen such as builders, plumbers, electricians and gas engineers.
- Other skilled people such as plasterers, painters and handymen.
- Surveyors, accountants and lawyers.
- Graphic designers, photographers, marketeers and web designers.
Please let us know either when registering for volunteer days coming up, or get in touch directly via email to: Lexie Sparks.
Volunteering once the pub is open
To get this working for the community, we will need people to help:
- Organise the running of clubs, pub competitions and special events.
- Be mentors and coaches for our young people from The Green Room School.
- Raise funds for further phases of improvements to The Swan.
- And those with hospitality skills.
We will also need volunteers to help with the renovations of later phases of The Swan (e.g. B&B, outbuildings, etc).
