RAF Marham combines two National Weeks to benefit our community!
FAMILY WEEK 30th May to 5th June
You might think you would be stuck for something to do with the family locally during the Half-Term 30th May to 5th June, 2011. Not so as events will be detailed in What’s On leaflet for May 2011. Look out for activities such as horse riding; family entertainment in the Bull & Bowl on Friday 3rd June and a disco for 5 to 12 year olds in the Sandringham Centre on Saturday 4th June and the special Sunday Family Church Service planned at St Margaret’s Church on Sunday 5th June. See the What’s On leaflet for full details.
VOLUNTEERS’ WEEK 1st June to 7th June
We want to raise the awareness of the need for everyone to be involved in their community. This is a National event and there is plenty to be done in the RAF Marham community under the umbrella of ‘Big Society’, doing things for ourselves. To help us create and maintain the Society we enjoy, volunteering is the key as well as being extremely rewarding – just speak to those who do it year after year. The Community Development Officer, Rita Broomfield, will be finalizing a booklet in mid – May with the self-help jobs that need doing. Contact Rita on Ext: 7884.
However, you can expect a volunteers’ fair on Wednesday 1st June in the Sandringham Centre – where we will be showcasing the planned developments to the building as well as some volunteering opportunities such as First Responders; radio station to encourage communication in the community; librarian to extend the library hours of operation; Home Watch as a local safer Neighbourhood scheme and community support activities such as road reps for Service families accommodation. On the evening of 1st June the Uniform Groups will be holding an open evening at the Youth Activity Centre to encourage volunteers such as the need for a warranted Guide leader so come along and see what the uniform groups including Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Girls Venture Corps Air Cadets have to offer.
We intend to finish the Volunteers’ Week on Tuesday 7th June with an invitation only Volunteers’ Thank You Lunch in the Bull & Bowl.
