Helping with the set up and opening of a Community Market... Early birds only apply

Sat 18 Dec 07:30 am
Maple Works, 73 Maple Road, Surbiton, KT6 4AG
Help improve community spirit, tradition, and monies for local charities!

Surbiton Farmers Market is back on the table for us to help with but boy it's early!!!

The market has been running in the community for 11 years and suffered like lots due to COVID this year. So although it is back it will be with safe social distancing guidelines but still trying to keep a community feel to it so plenty of organising and overseeing involved.

Surbiton Farmers' Market was set up by volunteers from the community for the community. Stallholders who trade at the market are business organisations but the organisation of the market itself is entirely volunteer-run and all of the surplus raised from pitch fees, etc supports local charities and good causes.

They have raised over £70,000 for charities and good causes benefitting Kingston and surrounding areas over the years.

The CM is listed as 2 hours as that is the max norm but the market will run on longer so if you do decide to stay then best liaise with market organiser on the day David. Number for the morning in case you need it is 0796 8085040.

If you just wish to help for this slot though then great as that is when they need you most.

Clearing the paths at Surbiton Cemetery

Tue 21 Sep 18:30 pm
58 Lower Marsh Lane , Kingston, KT1 3BJ
Make better access for all who visit here

This was a group run but now has to change to a community mission so straight to the task at hand...

The pathways at Surbiton Cemetery have overgrown with moss, grass and mud to form trip hazards and make access awkward especially for those in wheel chairs so we have a chance to some good turns here and grab a great workout!!

Some of us have tackled this task before and mainly in the dark (tad spooky eh) but this time we should be able to get most of the work done in good light (headtorch maybe towards the end might be needed)

Paul should be there to meet us and point us in the right direction - I will add contact details soon

Bring some gloves for sure and consider potential nettles as well actually so leggins etc might be useful

There will be shovels, wheel barrows and more so good physical one!!

Help the mighty SPEAR charity remind all of their services

Mon 23 Aug 18:30 pm
The Guildhall, Kingston upon Thames , Surrey , KT1 1EU
Assist with homelessness in our borough

This will be round 3 in Kingston as we left a few areas uncovered on our last super effort out to help

The reason for the flyering is captured in the statement below from Spear

'Given that SPEAR expects there to be a significant rise in those experiencing homelessness as a result of the economic and emotional impact of the pandemic, we have decided to run a door drop leafleting campaign across local boroughs within which we offer our help and services!'

So they have asked if we could help with this!

Meet point is set outside Guildhall entrance opposite the market area.

Here we should meet Spear rep Andy (number for the evening if we need is 077323 27829) who will have the leaflets.

Will need a bit of coordinating within the team to allocate numbers (This is something GG handle very well)

Andy is looking forward to seeing you and likely he has the drop areas and routes all mapped out so you can drop and move (step count PB here we come!)
