“I would just like to record my personal thanks to SVS and Auran in particular for the help and support provided, particularly facilitating access to a number of relevant groups hitherto unknown to me. We are currently wading through job descriptions one of which is for a volunteer co-oordinator to recruit some older persons and in which I have stated a requirement that they liaise closely with SVS”
How are your plans for St George’s Day coming along?
A few weeks ago we wrote to you about our plans to encourage Southampton’s first proper St George’s Day festival on April 23rd. We think everyone who is making their home and future in England should celebrate our country’s national day.
A lot has been achieved in a short time.
A festival celebrating the work of many different community organisations will be held at the Hub, City College, at 7pm on 23rd April. For more details, including how to reserve your tickets click here.
There will be a street dance performance in various venues through the day.
There is also a Facebook page so you can keep up to date with events as they are added www.facebook.com/sotonstgeorge.
So please let us know if you have an event planned and we’ll put it on these websites by emailing details to email@example.com or calling us on 023 8033 9807.
