A club for frail and elderly people urgently needs help.

Patient volunteers with good people skills are needed to help out on either Mondays or Wednesdays at the Heather Club that runs from Carey Baptist Church in the Marlowes.

The club offers a caring and friendly setting where members who may have memory problems can enjoy socialising and a range of stimulating activities.

The club runs from 10am until 3pm and volunteers can help for part or all of that time. Volunteers are asked for a commitment of at least six months.

Box Moor Trust

Would you like to share your interest in nature and outdoor environment with children aged four to 16 years old?

Activities will include pond dipping, building hurdles and animal spotting. Linked with the RSPB, the Box Moor Bird group has been going for a number of years and caters for a range of children in two popular Saturday morning groups. Come and join us as a leader or junior leader.


Volunteers are needed to help with radio communications and marshalling for events held by charity organisations and voluntary groups.

Could you help marshal and provide radio communications for school fetes, bonfire nights, fun days in Gadebridge Park?


Leaders for our Hertfordshire Health Walks – you choose where and when – from two hours per month to several times a week. Walks last up to one hour with route maps provided, plus training and support until confident.
