Please find below details of our next volunteer meeting on Thursday 19th Nov for (new and existing) volunteers for Boscombe Carnival, info on the upcoming Volunteers Forum on Weds 25th Nov; open to ALL volunteers across all organisations and also for our Community Fair Event in the Sovereign Centre on Weds 25th & Thurs 26th Nov.
On Thursday 19th Nov we will be running though the Boscombe Carnival event plan and briefing, some training on Road Closures, Effective Communication and Managing Conflict and finishing up with a Home-made Soup Supper.
On Weds 25th & Thurs 26th Nov we are holding a Community Fair in the Sovereign Centre with a Community Forum (see below) in our ‘Community Hub’ (sponsored by Boscombe Revive CIC) also under 5’s activities by Outside-In Eco Arts and Netanya Nature Pre-School, live music on stage (thanks to Oxfam’s Oxjam) and community and charity groups will have stalls throughout the walkways. There are some limited spaces for stalls still available and anyone interested in having a table top stall/display should get in contact asap.
There is a Volunteering Matters Forum on Wednesday 25th Nov. Volunteers have the option to meet at 10am at Bournemouth Acu Detox Centre in Roumelia Lane, Boscombe, for a community clinic taster session of an auricular acupuncture treatment for a donation in a group setting while we practice some simple internal Qi Gong (Energy Work) or simply sit in peace. Then at 11am the morning forum to discuss volunteering matters will begin in the Sovereign Centre with free refreshments, crèche, and a community lunch (donations welcomed). After lunch there will be training on Dealing with difficult situations in the workplace and Making good impressions. Booking is essential for the forum so we have an idea of numbers for the crèche and for lunch.
