Volunteers

Poynton Town council recognise that some residents are keen to give something back to their community which was no more apparent when we had to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. Poynton Town Council co-ordinated a volunteer response which supported our most vulnerable residents, by offering support, collecting prescriptions and organising shopping. Poynton’s Street Champions supported their elderly and vulnerable neighbours.

There are likely to be a number of volunteering opportunities in the town offered by local groups and organisations and we advise that you make contact with them directly.

Poynton Town Council offers a number of opportunities, listed below which provide a rewarding experience.

 

 

Poynton Pick & Tidy

Volunteers following guidance, safely carry out litter pick activities and assist in other projects throughout Poynton, with the aim of improving the environment and helping to maintain Poynton as a great place to live.

Poynton Area Community Partnership  — Volunteer opportunity

 

An exciting and interesting opportunity has arisen for a volunteer to work for the Poynton Area Community Partnership (PACP).

The PACP meets every two months and comprises representatives from Poynton and eight other mainly rural parishes in the area. It exists to support and promote community initiatives that benefit residents' health and wellbeing. The role is varied, and involves identifying and applying for grant funding to augment the PACP's annual grant from Cheshire East Council, liaising with those applying for, or in receipt of, PACP grants, compiling twice yearly reports on project outcomes for submission to Cheshire East, and leading on a range of other admin tasks in support of the PACP.

Reasonable expenses reimbursed. For further information about the role please contact Robert Hughes, Chair of Poynton Area Community Partnership on cllr.hughes@mottramstandrewpc.org.uk
