Volunteers Needed

A new disability-friendly, sustainable, local transport provision is being put into place for Watchfield residents.

What do we need from you?
We are looking for volunteers for 2 areas of this new enterprise: managing committee volunteers to administer and schedule the service, making connections with potential recipients of the service and other groups that may be able to refer to the service, such as the GP surgery. This will include a chairperson and representatives from each parish, where possible. Experience of scheduling, working in the charity sector and managing volunteers would be an advantage. This managing committee would have full autonomy of how to run the scheme but would be expected to report progress in writing, quarterly, to the supporting parish councils.  Secondly, we need a bank of volunteer drivers, with clean licences, willing to offer at least 1 morning or afternoon per week as a volunteer.

If you feel that this is a cause worth devoting your time to, please email with your name, mobile number and preferred email address.


All meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of the month at 19:30hrs in the Pavilion, Majors Road, Watchfield.  Streaming of meetings are not allowed under the current government legislation.

Where and when are the meetings?
Normal Parish Council meetings are held in Watchfield Pavilion at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of the month (except August).  Agendas and minutes are displayed on the noticeboards in the Village.  Any additional meetings will be advertised on the noticeboards.  You are welcome to attend.
At present, there is no Parish Council office.
