Community

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) aims to contribute to securing a safe society by reducing the incidence of death, injury and damage to property from fire and other emergencies. They are looking to take on some new volunteers to be based at the Wokingham Fire station. Community Engagement Volunteers are required to operate as part of a volunteering group delivering Home Fire Safety Checks to vulnerable people in the community. This role helps people live independently and safely in their own homes. Once the volunteers are trained, they can offer advice on how to keep the home safe and install smoke alarms to some of the most at risk members of the local Wokingham Community. The commitment can be determined by the wants and needs of the volunteer. The volunteer will need to have access to their own transport and be willing to undertake training and a DBS (police check.)

The Wokingham Litter Heroes is a community group that promotes a clean and tidy Wokingham. The aim of the group is to take positive action to make Wokingham Litter free. They are currently in their early days, so they are looking to raise awareness of the group and change the culture of a few who still do drop litter. They work with Wokingham Borough Council and the Adopt-a-street campaign. They are looking to recruit Wokingham Litter Heroes who are willing to pick up litter in and around Wokingham, mainly in parks and public spaces. The bags can get heavy so volunteers need to be quite physically fit.

Hatch Ride School in Crowthorne is looking for some volunteers to help out with their crossing patrol. They need cover on Mondays through to Fridays from 8.20am-8.50pm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
