Voluntary Work

If you are interested in volunteering opportunities, other than those listed below, please contact Sharon Duke, Communities Co-ordinator, on 01625 872238.

Make a real difference and have a rewarding experience by volunteering with one of the groups that Poynton Town Council works with.

 

Time out café (Friday 2pm – 4pm)

Time Out Cafe imageTime Out Café provides a guaranteed warm and friendly welcome, refreshments and a chat. Our volunteers make available a cup of tea and biscuits with a game of bingo or colouring activity and the opportunity to meet other people. Occasionally our local PCSO’s drop-in to say hello, and it’s an opportunity to find out about other services and groups in the area.

We are looking for volunteers who can serve refreshments and provide a friendly face.

All the volunteer opportunities are available on a rota basis, so any time you can offer would be welcomed. For more information and no obligation chat, please contact Sharon Duke, Communities Co-ordinator on 01625 872238, for an informal, no obligation chat.

More details about the Time out café can be found on the Adult Health and Wellbeing page.

 

Pride in Poynton

Show ‘Pride in Poynton’ by making a real difference to the presentation of your local neighbourhood.

Love Where We Live Civic Pride logoPoynton Town Council organise a twice-yearly working day event on the Inclines, which involves clearing non-native vegetation and general tidying up. We also have a small team of volunteer litter pickers, ‘Poynton Pickers’, who regularly pick litter from areas in Poynton.

We’re looking to build upon this and encourage residents and businesses to join the ‘Poynton Pick and Tidy Group’ improving the presentation of public areas in Poynton.

If you would like to find out more, enjoy light gardening and would be happy to get involved, please email phil.cunningham@poyntontowncouncil.gov.uk or call him on 01625 872238, for an informal, no obligation chat.
