Our volunteer receptionists welcome visitors to the Colllege with a cheery hello and a friendly smile!
Most volunteers have a regular slot for half a day or an evening each week. As well as 'meeting and greeting' our reception team respond to booking enquiries and general requests for information about the College. They answer the phone and monitor the reception email box, received deliveries and sort post, ensure that visitor sign in, and keep an eye on the CCTV. You will enjoy this volunteering opportunity if you like meeting people, and are good at communicating and problem solving. Sometimes it can be quiet (so feel free to bring a book to read!) but now that lots of things are starting to happen the receptionist's role can become quite busy.
We run training sessions for new reception volunteers and you will join an experienced receptionist for a session or two before going it alone. There are always staff in the building to refer to if anything unexpected crops up.
Our dear old College building has been rather neglected over the last few years. We are determined to bring it up to scratch so that our community has a great place to meet, learn, exercise, organize, have fun, and relax. It is a big building and we are seeking funding for some big refurbishment projects. However there are lots of room, corridors, and spaces that can be improved rapidly by a bit of 'TLC' and a splash of paint.
If you love a bit of filling and sanding, are handy with paint brush, or rock it with a roller why not come and give us a hand. We organize frequent 'working party' days but we also have ongoing projects which volunteers can help out with.
As you'd expect, we are only using environmentally-friendly, healthy decorating products and have entered into a partnership with German company DPM Mashel who product natural paints in powder form to cut out the costly transport of water from factory to site.
