Club Matters

Pennine is first and foremost a community… and a very supportive one. Our core membership includes some who have been involved for thirty years… but we’ve always got new members joining – and everyone rallies around to ensure things keep developing to meet everyone’s needs.

Our “club matters” activity ranges from practical stuff like maintaining our kit through and making plans for future events through to fun stuff like training our young aspirant coaches… and celebrating our various successes, including our 30th anniversary!

  • Mirfield Channel Maintenance Project

    Saturday, 30 November 2019  10:00 am - 2:00 pm

    Dear all,

     

    I am organizing an event on the 23rd November to introduce the volunteer/engagement elements of the River Stewardship Company’s upcoming Mirfield Channel Maintenance Project to the general public. There are several aims of the event – firstly, to raise awareness of the project; secondly, to attract and sign up volunteers for cleanup events; and thirdly, to identify what sort of additional activities community members would be most interested in us delivering (such as wildlife walks, craft activities, setting up a ‘friends of’ group etc.). A further aim is to celebrate the existing volunteer opportunities already provided from local organisations, as our aim is to complement, support and enhance the good work already being undertaken.

     

    The drop-in event will be at the Library from 10-2pm and will feature stalls and information tables, both inside and on the forecourt, some craft activities and refreshments. We will also be bringing a representative from a successful ‘Friends of’ group that we help support in Sheffield. We are also hoping to run a small taster litter pick session at a nearby location, weather permitting. I will be looking to advertise this locally with posters, plus the Mirfield Word and other printed and online media, to have it as well attended as possible.

     

    I would like to invite you to hold a stall or to have a presence the event in whatever format you would like. This would be a good chance to further advertise future volunteering opportunities on the waterway and tell new people a little bit more about what you do.

     

    If this is something you would be interested please let me know – it would be great to have you there and you’d be fantastic support. We can then discuss requirements for tables and setup etc. and how I can best facilitate this.

     

    Many thanks,
