We are looking for a friendly and creative volunteer who can join our arts and crafts group on Wednesday mornings or afternoons as they make different projects like the hanging stars shown in this video.
The volunteer will work alongside our facilitators to support different members of the group to take part in activities and ensure everyone is having fun! They will also help the facilitators to set up and clear away the room after different projects and join everyone for a cup of tea and a chat at break-times.
For more information please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator Laura- email@example.com or phone 01531 671080.
Watch our video showing the transformation volunteers from Kohler Mira Baths and Showers in Cheltenham worked on the garden at Keeper’s Cottage over 2 days in September and November 2016. Thanks again to all the volunteers for their hard work, and Involve Gloucestershire for facilitating the initial match and the beginning of the project.
We are looking for a volunteer who can accompany a group from Pound Farm to swimming sessions at a local pool alongside our support staff.
Volunteers involved in this activity will spend time with the group, helping staff to ensure everyone is safe and having fun in the water. Spending time with somebody new will also increase the group’s social interaction and enjoyment of keeping fit and healthy.

In September 2016 we were visited by a group of volunteers from Kohler Mira in Cheltenham who helped us to clear the flower beds at Keeper’s Cottage of overgrown shrubs and weeds in preparation for the opening of their cabin in October. We were then visited by a second group in November who laid gravel over the flower beds and installed a wooden border to complete the job. Both groups have made a massive difference to the garden and the work they have completed will mean that decorative flower pots can now be displayed, making the garden much easier for the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage to maintain and enjoy during the Summer months.
We would like to say a big thank-you to all the volunteers from Mira for working so hard over both days and for helping us to complete this project, you certainly earned it!
We will soon be posting a video of the garden make-over, but for now, here are some pictures of the volunteers hard at work.

Yesterday (17th November) our Representative group held an afternoon tea party in aid of BBC Children in Need at Salter’s Hill Barn in Ledbury. The Representative group formed in the Summer and they represent each of the places where they live and Creative Learning in regular meetings throughout the year. Recently they decided that they would like to hold an event, and yesterday saw them welcoming guests to the Barn for tea, coffee and a great selection of cakes.
The afternoon tea was a great success and it was lovely to see so many people coming through the doors. We would like to say a big thank-you to everyone who came, and all those who helped to organise the event and bake cakes (including the people who attend our Creative Learning Domestic Skills sessions). So far the tea party itself has raised £165.00 for Children in Need, and that’s not counting the donations which people have been making before and after the event!

On the 21st October 2016 we celebrated the official opening of the cabin at Keeper’s Cottage in Ledbury with a gathering of family, friends and supporters of Salter’s Hill.
This cabin has been built as a space for the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage to socialise and relax in.
During the opening Councillor Annette Crowe presented the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage with a cheque from money raised during her time as Ledbury’s Mayor in 2015/16. Thank-you!
