We have been an active and thriving association for over 15 years, with an impact that can be seen from the station to the gym, and from Finsbury Gardens to the Myddleton Road Community Garden.
For this to continue, we are always in need of volunteers to help with our activities. Those of you who attended the last AGM (2016) will be aware that the existing committee is small. Whilst we see ourselves as an ‘umbrella’ organisation, enabling the work of our sub-groups e.g. the two Gardens, the Gym and all our activity groups, we currently do not have the capacity to explore new projects or help others to respond to opportunities.
We would love to recruit three or four new committee members. We do various things: keeping an eye on developments in the neighbourhood, applying for grants for improvements, supporting local groups, deciding how to respond to incoming communications, and building relationships with councillors and other local bodies.
If you’re not keen on committees, there are lots of other ways you can give a hand. One-off offers of help such as gardening or helping with fund-raising events are just as useful as long term commitments. So, if you have limited time because you’re in full-time work, or at home looking after a family, we would still welcome your contribution to the local community.
If you’d like to find out more, please contact our chair, Joanna Burke, using our contact form, or on 07979 865700 to find out more about any of these ways of getting involved.
