Drop-in sessions where you can come in without an appointment for a chat and a cuppa! There’s a session for mums and babies, older people, those wanting to know more about OneTwoEight and those who would like to chat to the Safer Neighbourhood Team (police).
Get fit and healthy
with Physiopilates, Qi Gong or take part in the new Weight Loss Challenge (booking essential, email me for info
There is also a regular French conversation class for youngsters, a gardening group and Give or Take events.
If none of the above appeal to you, let us know what would and we’ll see if we can get something else started!
Every Wednesday we have a group of new mums who come together for a bit of support and a giggle. The group doesn’t need managing or sessions to be planned, all they need is for someone to commit to opening up and liaising with me. It’s a small commitment but may be the difference between the group surviving or falling apart. We know there are new mums in the area and want to be able to invite them along but can’t do that without a new volunteer.
English conversation classes have been a regular event since OneTwoEight opened. It’s a great way to welcome new people to the area and feel part of such a great community, not to mention helping them develop the skills they need to access employment and education. We need someone to work with others to lead this group. We can provide support and materials. If you think you have the commitment and the skills to do this, your help could prove invaluable.
If you’re considering taking on either of these roles, please reply by email
Finally, what do you think of OneTwoEight?
We urgently need to access new funding and the only way we’ll be successful is if we can prove that we make a difference. If you have a story to tell about what you like about OneTwoEight, how it has helped you or can describe the enjoyment it’s provided, please tell me about it
