COMPASS Volunteer Day – can you lend a hand?
6th November 2021 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to lend a hand with whatever needs doing. Support our exciting community Compass Project and help to transform the naturally-beautiful and historic 4.1 acre former Waldorf School site into a centre demonstrating practical solutions for healthy, sustainable lifestyles. We usually have a Produce Pop-Up which includes organically grown produce available on a donation basis too!
If you are able to lend a hand for a couple of hours, please come along! As always, please bear in mind we have minimal onsite facilities at present i.e. one toilet / handwashing running water so do come prepared along with sturdy boots and gloves.
All work will comply with current COVID guidelines.
We hold regular Saturday volunteer days where you can enjoy meeting like-minded people working together to make a visible difference to our site after each session.
Volunteers tell us it is very satisfying to see how much of a difference their work can make.
Volunteers with specialised skills such as joiners, plumbers and DIY-enthusiasts will be especially welcome as we enter the next phase of our project to strip out the existing buildings ready for refurbishment.
Compass volunteers comments:
Being out in the fresh air with others, seeing changes happening and feeling like I was part of a bigger process. I have also enjoyed meeting others who are enthused about the project.
Sense of community, healthy activities.
Very friendly co-ordinator and other helpers so feeling of welcome is lovely.
I also value the fact that I only manage a couple of hours but this is still appreciated and I don’t feel guilty when I feel like my body needs to stop!
Beautiful grounds to work in.
Such a great sense of satisfaction and wellbeing experienced at the end of 2 hours of hard physical work. This has sparked off an interest in gardening and growing plants at home.
And also enjoyed being part of a community and meeting new people each time I come along who are equally enthusiastic about this project.
Everyone is welcome at Compass and we look forward to working with you onsite!
