Town Volunteer List

Getting involved locally


The Town Volunteer List is one of the positive outcomes from the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic - we had over 150 local volunteers come forward to help out during the crisis many of whom wanted to continue to help in the community as things settled down again. Hence the Town Volunteer List.
