Volunteering does not have to involve a regular weekly commitment but can be on a ‘when you are available’ basis, especially for volunteers willing to help at events and cinema.
LA Connected is a newly formed group of organisations in the village of Long Ashton working together to improve the community. One of the first things we would like to do together is to create a central volunteer hub, so if you would like to volunteer for Long Ashton Community Association, LA Cinema or LA Cafe you can sign up in one place and we will pass your details on to the relevant organisation. We envisage the number of organisations being involved growing with time.
We are looking for volunteers to:
Help in the cafe
Sell tickets at events/cinema
Help with the bar at events/cinema
Learn to operate the cinema equipment
Look after the garden around the cafe area
Develop better communication of local information through I.T
Anything else you think might be helpful!
The Long Ashton Community Association (LACA) manages the Long Ashton Community Centre on behalf of the Parish Council. The Community Centre consists of a village hall, Jubilee Pavilion, Club Room, Keeds Hall (sports hall), Griffin Lounge and smaller meeting rooms. LA Café is run in the Club Room every weekday morning. In addition LACA manages the outdoor recreational spaces around the Centre. These consist of sports pitches, a bowling green, tennis courts, a children’s play area and Peel Park.
The trustees meet once a month to discuss strategy, finances, maintenance and improvements etc
LACA employs various part-time staff including a manager, office assistant, caretakers, cleaner and LA Café staff. The Centre also relies on volunteer help.
Enthusiasm, good communication and customer service skills.
A sense of being involved in the local community, getting to know local people. Volunteering in the cafe would be great experience for someone looking for paid work in this field.
