Volunteers

Poynton Town Council recognise that some residents are keen to give something back to their community. During 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.

Volunteering opportunities in the town are periodically offered by local groups and organisations.

The most recent opportunities are listed below. Please contact the individual groups/organisations directly if you are interested in helping.

If you run a local group or organisation and would like to advertise a local volunteering opportunity, we can help you spread the word. Please complete the form below, giving details of the opportunity on offer.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

 North East Cheshire Community Partnership - Secretary

(Posted 12th Aug 22)

 A volunteering role has arisen for a secretary to join the North East Cheshire Community Partnership (NECCP) team. The NECCP represents the communities of Poynton and eight surrounding parishes, and receives annual funding from Cheshire East Council. Grants are awarded from these funds to support fresh initiatives that are judged to be beneficial to residents, generally to promote their wellbeing, and support other community needs.

This role involves circulating an agenda by e-mail (agreed with the Chair) around ten days before each NECCP meeting. The secretary takes a record of the meetings, which generally last around 90 minutes.  Those present are encouraged to forward their contributions to the secretary electronically, and so can form much of the record. The draft record is sent by e-mail to the Chair for approval, and then distributed, again by e-mail, to the NECCP representatives. 

Meetings take place every two months and then the time required to prepare the minutes and circulate them.

Meetings are held in central Poynton, and occasionally at venues in the other member towns and parishes.

 Please forward expressions of interest to Robert Hughes, Chair of NECCP via email cllr.hughes@mottramstandrewpc.org.uk
