VRG Activity: Summer 2017

The “reinvented” Big Green Balloon Day took place on Saturday 13th May, with many activities enhanced by a partial road closure allowing us to be out enjoying the street. It was well received and we’re thinking hard about whether and when to repeat it, and how it could be even further improved.

Notes of all VRG meetings are available, as always, on this page of the blog. Please don’t forget that all residents are very welcome to attend the meetings and help plan interesting future events.

The next meeting will be on 4th September, 8pm at No.52.

If you are not yet on our email circulation list and would like to get updates about VRG activities and events, please contact Sam Clarke (No.56) or Jonathan Bromley (No.59) and we can add you to the list.

Quiz Night 16th April 2016

Leaflets are going out to everyone in the Seven Roads publicising the VRG Quiz Night on 16th April. Previous quiz nights have been very enjoyable, and the evening also provides VRG with an opportunity to raise the modest amount of money needed to support its activities, including our annual liability insurance.

Please encourage friends and neighbours to join in, and it’s even better if you can get a team of six together!

Sound Resource Charity – treasurer needed

 Use YOUR skill and experience to support us to

improve wellbeing through singing and music

Sound Resource runs fun, inclusive, participatory singing sessions with adults in Oxfordshire – there are no auditions, participants don’t need experience and there’s no need to read music. Sessions are guided by experienced community singing practitioners using a wide range of musical material.

The charity currently provides regular sessions for people with lung conditions, works in partnership with local housing associations to run weekly sessions for people over 50 and is exploring innovative ways of working in residential homes. The programme is expanding! In addition, Sound Resource mentors those wishing to progress their community singing skills, provides consultancy and is developing methods for measuring the benefits of singing for wellbeing, social benefit and reduction of isolation. Next steps include developing training for health and social care staff and working with people with dementia.

We are looking for a Treasurer

Trustees work as a team, meeting once a quarter, to help the charity achieve its aims. This includes making sure the charity is running well financially and strategically, and is compliant with charity law. Although the role is voluntary and unpaid, trustees have an opportunity to contribute to something with significant positive impact.

Sound Resource has funding to deliver sessions to August 2016, but is actively seeking additional funding to cover core costs and to significantly develop the charity. The Project Manager is actively fundraising and a Trustee with sound financial knowledge and skills would strengthen the existing Trustee team.

If you would like to know more please get in touch soundresourcecharity@gmail.com
