Come and meet us – our next ‘at home’ in Faversham!

Saturday 9th November                   1 – 5pm

We’re already expecting many previous volunteers to be here, as well as several of our overseas partners  – The Gambia, Peru, Kenya and Morocco have already confirmed! ( having a social close to the big tourism congress of World Travel Market really helps!) – so this will be a great opportunity for those of you who may be thinking of possible volunteer placements in the future to come along and find out more !

Venue
We invite you to our next volunteers’ meeting and social event here at Kate’s home, which is also our ‘head office’.

There’s plenty of parking nearby for those of you who choose to drive. If you come by train, there are frequent trains from London, Victoria as well as on the new ‘high speed’ line from London, Saint Pancras.

There are usually plenty of taxis about, or Naboth’s Nursery is about a ten minute walk from the station.

Visitors
November is a good time for us all to meet, as many of our overseas partners, friends and colleagues are in the UK to attend the annual World Travel Market in London.

Our volunteer programme advisor, Dianne Ashman, will be with us  having just returned from her latest trip to Saint Lucia.

Bookings by 17th September
We will need to have a good idea of how many people to expect as soon as possible.

Please let us know if you plan to come along, and if you will be alone or with friends and family!

As usual, we’re inviting volunteers who’ve already travelled, as well as people who are considering volunteering in the future. So, this social occasion will give you all the chance to meet each other – previous volunteers can catch up on the news, and future volunteers will be able to ask the ‘veterans’ what volunteering is really like.

Programme
This is an informal occasion – at about 1.45pm, Sallie and Kate will give a short presentation and then there will be plenty of time to ask questions and socialise.

There will be refreshments of course – nothing extravagant, but some drinks and tasty morsels to sustain everyone!

We’re really looking forward to this opportunity to meet you – we’ve met quite a few volunteers over recent years, but nowhere near enough! It will be wonderful to be able to put more faces to voices and names.

R.S.V.P. by Monday 17th September.

We’ll then send out further info and directions.

All the best,
the people and places team – Kate, Sallie, Dianne and Nigel
