Volunteers

Become a Volunteer

This very active and busy Community Centre is staffed, in the main, by a fantastic team of volunteers, which enables the Centre to be open daily between 9am - 10pm.

 We are always in need of volunteers who could spare a couple of hours where possible, and would love to hear from any one who may be interested in helping us at the Centre. Very briefly, a steward's task is to keep the Centre running smoothly during their duty period. The more routine aspects of the job are summarised below: 

  • Be present at the Centre over the duty period.
  • Provide information about the Centre, its facilities and activities, forthcoming events etc to visitors or telephone enquirers.
  • Accept bookings for badminton. (All other bookings are dealt with in the Admin office).
  • Issue receipts and record takings.
  • Sell sweets, soft drinks etc from the snack bar and use appropriate till. Make tea and coffee in small quantities.
  • Enrol new members and renew existing memberships.

We are looking for friendly people with plenty of common sense to join our team, and will promise you a warm welcome. Training and supervision will be provided until such time as you are happy and confident to be working alone. 

Please Help!

 We are appealing to any one who may be interested in volunteering an hour or two from as little as once per month, to lend a hand in our reception. There are plenty of "slots" that need covering, either on a weekly, alternate weekly or even once a month basis.

Every year we hold a special dinner in honour of all the stewards, committee members and trustees of the centre, to say a big "thank you" for everything that they do. They are all volunteers, and happily give their time and energy in order to maintain the efficient running of the centre.

As well as being invited to our annual Thank you Dinner, we hold regular coffee mornings. This is an informal get-together and a chance for us to catch up on each other's gossip and news, (as well as indulging in delicious cakes!) and an opportunity for stewards to meet each other and make new friends. We also organise coach trips and outings, and have fun with the quizzes and information supplied in our monthly stewards newsletter. 

Interested?
