Volunteering Opportunity

Could you help run St George Community Centre?
We're looking for new people to join our management committee

About us
St George Community Centre is an affordable venue for a diverse range of groups and activities. From Tai Chi to Toddler Groups, there's always plenty going on. We have a Community Asset Transfer from Bristol City Council (who own the building) and all the income we generate is used to maintain this vital community resource.

About you
  • You live or work in St George and want to make a difference to your community.
  • You can commit to a 2 hour meeting every 6 weeks.
  • You are able to join our keyholder rota to open/close the centre for occasional parties and events.
  • You have skills that could help run this community building. At the moment we're particularly looking for support with marketing and fundraising.

This is a voluntary position, but we can promise plenty of tea and biscuits at meetings. If you're interested in joining us please email us at explaining how your skills and experience could help St George Community Centre.

Changes at the Centre

Firstly a rather belated Happy New Year to you all. We hope 2015 is going to be a busy year at St George Community Centre.

We are pleased to report that Jo Drummond has now settled in as our part-time Centre Co-ordinator. Jo is the person to talk to about hire enquiries and is available at the centre on Monday mornings, or the usual number and email at other times.

We also have some rather sad news. Kate Gascoyne, our current Chairperson, is standing down after many years serving on the Management Committee. It has been a pleasure to work with Kate, who has a passion for her local community and has helped make the centre what it is today. The rest of us on the committee would like to say an enormous thank you to Kate for her leadership and her sheer hard work. We will miss you and you are a hard act to follow.
