The Reedham Village Team would like to invite local groups and clubs to take part in the first ever ‘Join in with Reedham’ event due to take place on Saturday 16th June 2018 from 10am to 12.30pm. The Village Team is made up of representatives from local groups and community members.
The purpose of the event is for all the various clubs and groups in and around Reedham to come together at the Village Hall, to promote themselves and encourage members of the local community to join. The event would be advertised to all local residents, free to attend and hopefully good fun!
We would like the event to be as vibrant and interesting as possible, perhaps with local groups putting on ‘give it a go’ sessions, demonstrations, competitions or providing advice. For example; a similar scheme elsewhere has seen a gardening society provide plant identification advice, the local football club providing taster sessions to sign up to at the event, the tennis club running a ‘guess how many balls in the bucket’ competition and the local cycling club running a competition to see who can cycle the furthest (on an indoor bike!) in two minutes.
The idea for the event came from discussions at Village Team meetings where members reported that several local groups and societies are struggling to recruit committee members, trustees and general members. The Village Team recognise the vital contribution that all of the groups in Reedham make to the vibrancy of the community and the lives of individuals and would like to support them wherever possible, hence the creation of the ‘Join in with Reedham’ event.
We would be delighted if your club or group would like to participate in the 2018 Join in with Reedham event. Please contact Lynsey Hubbard at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
