St Margaret’s Summer Fete is looking for VOLUNTEERS, plant donations and your interest. Contact Kerry Ballie at St. Margaret’s Hospice if you can help out at this annual event.
The Taunton Flower Show is back in business and takes place from 6th – 7th August. This fabulous event is a great reminder of all the things we have most missed during our ‘Lockdown’ year. Getting out, meeting others, attending events, viewing the amazing creations and stalls and enjoying ourselves alongside others. Although it’s a scaled down event this year we’re sure the buzz and bustle of this much loved Flower Show will be heartily welcome.
The Flower Show organisers are keen to recruit VOLUNTEERS, so if you’d like to help out contact the organisers through the Flower Show website or email the organisers: email@example.com . Alternatively contact us and we’ll pass on your contact details.
Don’t know what to do with that Christmas Tree when the festivities are over? For several years St Margaret’s Hospice has been offering their local communities a Christmas Tree Collection Scheme. This involves organising a pre-arranged roadside collection service of Christmas Trees in early January. In return residents are encouraged to make a donation to the Hospice. What a great service which is this year being run with their partner Children’s Hospice South West.
The Hospice are calling for VOLUNTEERS to help run this charitable service. If you think you can help either as a driver or someone who can load and unload, then do get in touch with the Kerry.Baillie@st-margarets-hospice.org.uk or make contact through this website and we’ll pass on your contact details.
Wanted: A new Chairperson and Secretary for The Friends of Dene Barton Community Hospital.
The Friends of Dene Barton Hospital were established to raise funds for patient resources at the Dene Barton Community Hospital based in Cotford St Luke, near Taunton. The Hospital has a Neurological Rehabilitation Unit and an outpatients section of the Musgrove Park Hospital Physiotherapy Department. Also based at the hospital is a District Nurses Hub, an Integrated Rehabilitation Team, a Pain Team and a Rapid Response Team. The Friends are urgently in need of a new Chairperson and Secretary. This very active and successful group may have to fold if they can’t find committed volunteers to take these roles. Please help if you can. You can contact the current Chairperson, Alan Sutton, for more information. All enquiries will be confidential.
The group meets every five weeks and has tremendous support from the local community and especially the primary School.
