  • The pupils say thanks! at Crich Junior School

    29 December 2019 The pupils say thanks! at Crich Junior School

    In Crich, we are incredibly lucky to have a large number of volunteers, who come into school to share their wealth of knowledge and expertise and to spend time with our children, whether it is to listen to them read, help with the gardening, go swimming on Fridays, teach them songs for our shows or come in and knit.

  • Our vital volunteers at Crich Infant School

    28 December 2019 Our vital volunteers at Crich Infant School

    Volunteers play an important part in the life of our school, enhancing what we can offer to the children. We are always grateful to those who give their time to listen to the children read. The volunteers enjoy hearing the children and seeing their skills grow and develop over time. The family members who come on school trips with us enable these visits to take place and allow us to undertake these opportunities for learning outside of the school.

  • Join the Whatstandwell Social Club

    27 December 2019 Join the Whatstandwell Social Club

    All the events organised by the Whatstandwell Social Club are entirely manned by volunteers. The core of committee members is helped out by friends, relatives and villagers from around the parish. The idea is to put on events which benefit villagers as well as the wider community, and importantly, to have fun doing it!

  • Fritchley Village Hall offers free use to volunteers

    26 December 2019 Fritchley Village Hall offers free use to volunteers

    We know from experience that it can be daunting to take on organising an event – if there are costs involved and you don’t know how many people will turn up, it can seem risky. We’d like to offer anyone from the local area who’s thinking about starting up a community activity, or running a not-for-profit event, a period of free use of the hall to get their activity off the ground.
