As part of the ‘Spring into Action’ burglary campaign, TVP has produced a new Home Security Booklet. I had attached an image containing a hyperlink in my last messages, but because I can no longer include images in messages, it failed to attach - so here is the actual link
I went to Brunel Uni yesterday, to discuss the ‘Give and take Care’ Volunteer Bank project, with other partners and organisations. We received a full explanation of how the project works in Europe and how the group would like to introduce it to RBWM. For those people who unofficially ‘volunteer’ - carers, drivers etc. The group will prepare role profiles which I will circulate, next week. This way, people who volunteer in their communities - helping others - can be recognised, for the brilliant work they do. The group hope to work with local businesses, to develop a discount card.
Generally, volunteers do not need or want recognition, for what they do, many do not even claim expenses, but we, as a community, need to recognise the enormous contribution they make and thank them. Long term carers for example, often suffer financially and have little time to carry out essential tasks. The volunteer bank, would be a way of connecting with other volunteers, who can reach out to them to say - don’t worry about your garden, I know you won’t have time to mow the lawn and make it look good, I love gardening, but don’t have one of my own and would love to come and help you with yours and take that worry off your shoulders.
Let’s see how we go. We are at the very initial stages. If you are part of a group that would like to be involved, please let me know. We are creating an Exec group of ‘doers’.
On Wednesday I presented to the ‘U3A’ - Windsor University of the Third Age - a fantastic and vibrant group, with dozens of very varied interest groups. More information go to https://u3asites.org.uk/windsor/groups I delivered my Crime Prevention / Scams / Frauds talk. A brilliant audience, really good insight and questions. That always makes it a pleasure. CRIME MAIDENHEAD CENTRAL: email@example.com
