Calling All Local Voluntary Organisations

The Milford on Sea Charitable Trust and Community Panel are inviting representatives of all Voluntary Organisations serving Milford, Everton and Keyhaven to join them for a coffee morning on Saturday 16th June between 10am and 12noon in the Community Centre, Sea Road, Milford on Sea. 

MoS Community Panel is a networking group attended by representatives of many local voluntary organisations. They meet once every two months to discuss the needs of residents, particularly those who may be vulnerable, and develop projects to meet those needs. Milford Befrienders is a good example of one of our initiatives. Another is the Seahorses parent and toddler group. 

Members of the Panel recently established a charity to support existing groups, and new projects which benefit people living in the parish of Milford on Sea. 

Active members of voluntary organisations often meet up at the Newcomers’ Supper, which over the years has given an opportunity for us to network. However, we feel we need a more targeted approach for those organisations who depend on volunteers, to get together to discuss how we recruit them, perhaps at a special event. The Panel are planning to launch “Community Information Points” and we would like your input on how best to do this. We do hope you will come along to discuss areas of mutual interest and how we can work together to better fulfil the varied needs of our community.

Please RSVP to Ruth Bufton: ruth.bufton@btinternet.com 01590 641875 

The Milford on Sea Charitable Trust is a registered charity no 1172750
