Social Activities

This team has reviewed what social activities have been held within the Parish: have they been well supported, what do people want and need? What successful events are run by other organisations in and around the Fenham area and could they be encouraged/embraced in our parish? Are there any groups of people we do not engage with? Are there gaps in the provision of social activities? Maybe we could encourage Parish groups to come together to hold an event?  The team has created and will maintain a calendar of regular and proposed events. 

This team arranges and supports a range of social activities of interest to all our parish community.  Are you a person with good communication skills who can develop and deliver innovative and engaging activities, projects and events?  Are you able to identify what our Parish needs in this regard?  If so, please consider joining the Social Activities team.
