- our Volunteer Driver Service which offers lifts to local people (mainly elderly) who have limited mobility or no access to transport and need to get to appointments, etc.
- the community library which is open two sessions a week and run by volunteers.
- Our Dementia Friendly Dollar activity will include a fortnightly community café at the Hive in January aimed at older people in the community and we need café volunteers and bakers.
- Baby and Toddler Group Support – help with the baby group, hosts and bakers, Rhythm and Rhyme sessions, walk leaders.
- Right now we are looking for people to help with maintaining the trees that have been planted. This would entail doing a walk by of the trees every two weeks (or as often as you can, any help would be appreciated) during the summer/early autumn and then a few visits Nov – March.
- We are looking for coordinators and fixers for our Repair Café held on the last Saturday of each month.
- Toy Library: we would like to set up a toy library, is there someone who could help us to do this?
- Gardeners to keep the grounds of the Hive looking nice!
