Avondyke Update - we're still looking for volunteers

12th July 2011

Following on from our notice about holding a meeting at Avondyke on 6 July 2011, I thought I would take an opportunity to update adults across Clyde Region about where we are now at.

More than 30 adults, attended the meeting where a wide ranging discussion was had about how we, as a Region, might continue to operate Avondyke.

At its meeting in June, the Regional Executive Committee agreed minimum criteria (see earlier article) for the continued operation of the Centre.

I am pleased to be able to report that we are now part way to meeting these with a number of individuals and Groups having committed to assist with opening and closing and maintenance tasks. If anyone else would like to volunteer, please contact Gary Bainbridge ASAP.

At the meeting, it was agreed that there was a vital need for an Avondyke Coordinator to take a lead in coordinating the volunteers and liaising with the Regional Office and Business Committee and that anyone interested in this role should make contact with Gary Bainbridge in the Regional Office by August 31st.
