Volunteer for 2 hours a week with primary school children

One-Eighty are looking for a bit of your time to help support their Kick Start project. The project helps primary school children across Oxfordshire, who are restless/hyperactive in the morning. You will work alongside professional support, with a small number of children who need assistance in calming down – this then helps them to engage in learning when lessons begin.

Kick Start is a 7-week program that usually works with between 8 and 12 children who take part in a variety of creative activities.

Make a date to decorate!

If you've visited the village hall in the past few weeks you will have noticed that all the building work and lighting is now complete. We have had numerous comments of appreciation; even remarks that the hall looks bigger (it is actually 200mm narrower).  Tapper Interiors have done a splendid job completing the work on time and on budget.

But ... we now have to decorate!

We plan to do this ourselves with the help of as many villager volunteers as possible. We just haven’t the funds to pay to have it done professionally.  Please spare us an hour ... or a whole day. Read more »
